What's important isn't the sexism--it's the rudeness and dismissiveness to a reporter. This is the same guy who ducked thug like into a speeding SUV from Carol Marin for crying out loud--who dissed her at the meeting where dodged really important stuff about Rezko--but not for long. Ken (Big Tobacco's Guy) Starr's protege, Judge St. Eve in the Rezko trial has delayed things in the trial, possibly to help sink Clinton--didn't work did it.
There's LOTS of interesting stuf at this url:

The worst for the Obamas: "...."But there would be no reason for me to be seeing him that often," he stated.

This issue may be sorted out soon enough because Fitzgerald’s charts matching up Obama’s contributions, visits and calls are bound to be every bit as thorough as the ones produced to prove Rezko is guilty as charged in the first trial. They simply were not produced because they were not needed to prove the defendant guilty in the first case.

As an example of what records might be squirreled away, consider that an FBI agent presented a chart to the jury on April 28, 2008, showing 257 calls from Rezko’s phones to Blagojevich’s chief of staff, Lon Monk, between March 2004 and May 2004 alone.

He also had a list of all calls between Levine and Rezko from November 2002 to May 2004. Rezko’s attorney brought out a point that backs the assertion that just because records on Obama were not shown, does not mean they do not exist.
….
In addition, the contributions extorted through the Planning Board scheme were for the intended presidential candidate, Blagojevich. Obama’s US senate war chest was already funded and by the time these kickbacks were paid that campaign would be over.

But Obama did end up with $20,000 from the very first kickback paid in the pension fund scheme set up through the Board of the Teacher's Retirement System.

Apparently the Detroit reporter didn't get the memo about how the media is supposed to behave on Obama junkets.

STOP THE NONSENSE! JOHN EDWARDS ENDORSES OBAMA!
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!
STAY IN THE PRESENT, NOT THE PAST!

Evelyn Pringle (if that is really her name) is about as much of a journalist as my dog Spot. Before she started recycling Novak, Fusco, Kass, and other real journalists' Obama works, mostly without attribution, she seemed to specialize in attacking Big Pharma. Off the meds, Evie?

As for "sweetie," take some real hits at Obama instead of a stupid passing remark There are plenty to take.

The comment about Judge St. Eve was also way out of line. There is not one speck of evidence that she has run this trial, or any trial, in anything but a fair, impartial manner.

SEAN HANNITY DEFENDS BARACK OBAMA, I SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES!

It becomes ever more evident thta we have passed our grassroots and have forgotten the trials and tribulations our forefathers and currently our young men and women of the armed forces.We were once known as the sleeping Giant not to be awaken an Industry of morals and character a society of skill and dedication and now within 100+ days we are seen by many no more than a speckle on a map or pure laughter around a table. We must revert to what we know best a strong prosperous nation that when challanged leads and does not follow, Teaches but does not falter, represents freedom in its fullest and belives the People are America the land of the free and the Home Of The Brave. Not one person not one party but melting pot of the Pepole who make the United States the greatest country in the world.Let us never forget what has happened in our past to make our country great from the halls of iwogima to shores of New York When did we loose sight of our goal our voice our independence and allow one person one party to dictate our lives, passion and ambiance if we continue to falter we will no longer be Free for so many before us gave so much so that we may say, we the pepole represent Freedom.
