Don’t Cry No Tears Around Me


John Boehner was blubbering on 60 Minutes last night about something or the other, which a nice illustration of how it’s OK for macho Republican men to secrete strategic tears as fast as the Arabian trees their medicinal gum.

Such displays are by nature far more problematic for Democrats, who are typed as “soft” due to their (largely hypothetical) reluctance to kill foreigners with enthusiasm, or worship at the shrine of television characters who are tough enough to save American lives by torturing people etc.

Needless to say all these rules are even more abstruse for women politicians and pundits, who are under continual suspicion of being either hysterical little girls or ruthless ball-breaking bitches. It’s complicated!
