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.
Restraint? Sounds like hesitation to me.
...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.
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.
