Joe Biden traveled to Kyiv, Ukraine and made an observation: ""I cannot believe that a Frenchman visiting Kyiv went back home and told his colleagues he discovered something and didn't say he discovered the most beautiful women in the world. That's my observation," he told Yushchenko. "It's certain you have so many beautiful women."
Believe it or not, this is not simply another Biden gaff. If you have ever been to Ukraine, like Joe Biden and myself, you would very likely make the same comment. It's not belittling or minimizing, but rather, it is quite an amazing fact.
Unfortunately for Ukraine, their gorgeous women have also caught the eye of perverts from all over the world, and sex tourism is a problem. And one of their greatest exports to the U.S. is mail order brides. Those are problems that should be dealt with both inside Ukraine and in the countries that send Ukraine these problems.
But the fact remains a fact: While the U.S. is stuffed full of fat people complements of McDonalds and Coca Cola, you just don't see that in Ukraine, at least not anywhere near the epidemic levels in the U.S. You will see a preponderance of slim, attractive women in Ukraine.
Joe Biden was right (this time). And kudos to Ukraine, the land of hard working, innovative, beautiful people.
