That ol' double standard

Posted By on Mon, Feb 18, 2008 at 9:26 AM

I heard a commentator say something akin to this on NPR on Friday. Now, thanks to Atrios, I read John King of CNN say in response to a question about Mitt Romney's future:

King: Gov. Romney is a young man. I think he is thinking about his future political viability and does not want to be seen as the Republican who stayed in the race, roughing up a man who will most likely be the party's standard there in the general election.

Atrios notes:

Hillary Clinton was born 6 months after Mitt Romney. Both are 60. Any chance anyone in the mainstream media will ever describe Hillary Clinton as a "young woman?"
