America's Concern Troll

Richard Cohen, who if you dislike those who leer or ogle should be known to you as "ACTION BRENT MUSBURGER!" manages to start off his defense of Chuck Hegel (who I think deserves some defense) with the worst possible way for Richard Cohen to start anything short of "Hey, who's that sexy young intern we just hired?":

Before they were girls, they were women. Before that, they were girls. I am not talking here of the chronology of females but of acceptable usage. Back in the 1970s, for instance, the use of “girl” could trigger a stinging rebuke and the damning charge of male-chauvinist piggism — or why else would a man call a woman a girl? This was the Golden Age of political correctness, which now, it seems, has its last redoubt on, of all places, the opinion pages of the robustly anti-PC Wall Street Journal.

For Richard Cohen to ever start out a column this way is a bit like having Clarence Thomas do the forward for a history of interracial porn called "Chocolate Thunder Down Under" --

But there is it anyway.

Six figures in salary annually for that.
