POLITICS AND TESTOSTERONE, PART II
Last week, it was Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger who created a stir by calling his Democratic critics "girlie men." Monday in Boston, it was Democratic consultant and commentator James Carville who decided to weigh in on the issue of manliness.
Speaking to a roomful of veterans, Carville -- a former Marine -- said he was going to tell "everyone in the room" his opinion on something, although with a phalanx of television cameras in the back he acknowledged that "it'll probablyh get out of this room."
His opinion was a comparison between the major party candidates for president.
"John Kerry is a better man than George Bush," Carville said. "Man-to-man, it ain't close."
Before the campaign season is over, we may need a double dose of Viagra just to prop up all this talk about manhood.
