Bush administration needs to wimp up

By now you may have heard about Ruth Marcus' column diagnosing the 'problems' of the Bush Administration.

She says it is too manly.

OK, no one has to be told that the left is in greater touch with it's feminine side. I mean, you guys have Hillary Clinton, and Helen Thomas, and DiFi, and Barbara Mikulski, and Barbara Pitbull Boxer. Perfect visions of femininity. Oh, and Barney Frank.

...What this country could use is a little less manliness -- and a little more of what you would describe as womanly qualities: restraint, introspection, a desire for consensus, maybe even a touch of self-doubt.

Restraint? Sounds like hesitation to me.

Introspection? Like when Jimmy Carter gave the "Maliase" speech?

Consensus? Margaret Thatcher's qoute should be repeated here: "Consensus is the absence of leadership."

Self-doubt? The left cannot accept the fact that anyone can have confidence in themselves.
