I watched a little bit of television news last night. They were showing clips of Obama giving speeches in various locales. I was struck by the Obama wardrobe: very attractive neckties and custom-made suits. Then I thought about how much of a fuss the media has made over Sarah Palin's wardrobe expenditures, but there has not been a word about the wardrobe expenditures of the three senators. Is this lopsided coverage because she is a woman, and they are all men? I believe the term for that kind of bias is sexism.
