Zardari met Governor Palin in New York last week and reportedly told her she was "gorgeous." (Watch the meeting on YouTube.)
The Muslim leader chastised Zardari for "indecent gestures, filthy remarks, and repeated praise of a non-Muslim lady wearing a short skirt."
According to the "Monitor," the Pakistani English-language daily "Dawn" asked in an editorial, "Why do our presidents always end up embarrassing us internationally by making sexist remarks?"
