Cindy McCain thinks Palin is “a babe” – but that’s not sexist

Uh huh.

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.
