    Wink Cindy McCain makes a sexist remark about herself and Sarah Palin

    Speaking to Diane Sawyer, Cindy McCain blasted the overall coverage of Palin as sexist -- and specifically an Us Weekly cover headlined "Babies, Lies and Scandal."

    "I think it's insulting," McCain told Sawyer. "I think it's outlandish. And for whatever reason, the media has decided to treat her differently, because, I believe, because she's a woman."

    While McCain believes sexism has fueled much of the criticism against Palin, she didn't disagree with conservative commentator and radio host Rush Limbaugh's assertion of the governor.

    "We're the ones with a babe on the ticket," Limbaugh said.

    "She is. She's lovely. I think she's beautiful," McCain said in response to the comment.

    I don't see the lovely and beautiful. To me, Palin looks like Sally Jesse Raphael with an Amy Winehouse wig.

    Point is, they don't want their looks or their womanhood commented on, unless of course it's complimentary.

    Nice job, idiots. Double standard much?

    I know what the point of the article was, but I am still gonna comment since her "beauty" is rammed down my throat every time I turn on the damn TV, and I am sick of it.

    That's reaching...

    She said she was lovely and beautiful.. she didn't call her a babe or a hottie!

    I'm a woman and I didn't find it sexist.. that's just me though.

    it is sexist, especially compounded by the hypocrisy.

    Limbaugh said she was a "babe", and Cindy McCain responded "She is", in agreement with him. But, yes, his comment was more offensive, and I think Cindy McCain could have responded differently.

    They don't call the male candidates handsome or attractive.
