'Retro' Anti-Abortionists Battle 'Magnetic' Planned Parenthood Prez

The inimitable Clay Waters of TimesWatch has an easy job today: finding the slant in the Times piece about Planned Parenthood's president.

While I had noticed that the Times reporter positively gushed over Cecile Richards' attractiveness — comparing her to Eighties gender-bender Annie Lennox — and that the reporter referred to "abortion rights" as a "women's rights precedent," I somehow missed the "retro" insult. Perhaps it's because I always thought the word was a compliment.
