So much for pundit predictions

Holy crap, Hillary won in NH and the pundits are freaking out. The worst part is that I just had to endure a "report" on Fox "News" where the talking moron discussed "why do tears work for women but not for men?" I almost picked up this monitor and threw it at the TV in the cafeteria at work (which as you know is Fox Nazi Channel central!).

How many examples of men tearing up and getting emotional do we need to see? Hell, remember when Walter Cronkite teared up when covering the moon landing? That is one of the single most powerful memories of my childhood! So Muskie's presidential hopes crashed when he cried--that was like forty years ago, folks. Wake up, MSM--we're not as stupid as you think we are.

He did not say that?! God, that just irritates the shit out of me too. I'm surprised he didn't say that "Hillary was probably on the rag" while he was at it.

"Why don't tears work for men, completely forgetting how it's been browbeat into young boys since the dawn of time that any display of emotion is weakness so that when emotions are displayed we wonder why they won't have the desired impact? Why, cruel society that we invented but blame on others, why?"

Fucking idiots.

Like kristilove, I'm just waiting for some moron to attribute it to "hormones".

GKL--that was probably what many guys said in private.

Randal--no kidding!

CDP--I doubt anyone will make any further comments, for fear that it'll make the terrorists even feel sorry for her!

I don't know...I think tears work when men cry. Every time my husband gets on his knees and begs me for sex with tears streaming down his face...sometimes I let him have it...after he's done the dishes and cleaned the garage,that is. ;-)

ME--of course! He'd better not even bother if he hasn't done his chores.
