Jay Nordlinger at the WSJ comments on the obvious truth, that being that Republicans like George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Arnold Schwarzenneger are tough and manly, whereas Democrats like Bill Clinton are a large mob of metrosexual girly-boys.

Again, the Democrats will have to acquire a bit more testosterone if they’re to compete with the GOP. This is, indeed, no time for “pitty-patty.” As for the Republicans, if they had any more testosterone, they’d be The Incredible Hulk.


The piece also includes my favourite Rumsfeld quote:

When a reporter asked him why U.S. forces were using such heavy bombs in Afghanistan, the secretary replied: “They are being used on frontline al Qaeda and Taliban troops to try to kill them.” Oh.

When it comes down to the crunch though, the Republicans are all talk. When a member of the Bush administration beats up a rowdy drunk with an Iron Bar, then we’ll have something to talk about.
