Back in June, ABC’s Lara Spencer embarrassed herself by lauding President Obama as a “baby whisperer” that could wondrously calm infants. On Wednesday, Washington Post Metro section columnist Courtland Milloy – yes, the one who’s violent enough in his thought against Tea Partiers to need a whisperer – returned to that obsequious territory.
“Not surprisingly, some hard-core right-wingers resent that Obama is good at baby holding," Milloy insisted. “”The only complaint they can come up with, however, is that he is too soft and maternal. They would like to see one of the babies ruin his photo ops by throwing up on him or soiling their diapers.”
