At a town meeting on health care in Grand Junction, Colorado, President Obama addressed each of the three women with questions as "young lady". The first woman looked to be fiftyish, the second woman could have been in her mid- thirties, and the last woman was elderly.

I'm sure he would have objected if Lindsey Graham had addressed Sonia Sotomayor as "young lady" during the confirmation hearings.

It's ok to call us women, Barack. That's what we are. And could you lose the "boy/girl" routine? We expect more from you.
