gall and gumption

Wednesday, April 02, 2008


I can’t help suspecting that the proprietor of ALDaily must be losing an argument with a woman about once a week. Same woman, different woman, doesn’t matter. What do you suppose is the subject of that argument?

It's a pretty killer combination, the theme that emerges from these. You've got on one side the theme that woman are not good judges, they're confused and don't know their best interests. On the other side these weak-minded creatures are solely and entirely responsible for the consequences of the choices they make, and if they make bad choices then we are free to hold them in contempt. Contempt enters the picture one way or another, sooner or later, somewhow. And don't forget "What? Why are you looking at me like that? I was just kidding. Can't you take a joke?" And, last of all, the quietly seething belief that "political correctness" is a dreadful imposition on his right to express himself. And a loathing for liberals and hippies that runs so deep that he cannot "believe" in global warming for the simple reason that they believe in it. The "other" side never gets a chance to be heard.

Not a stupid man, but a very sour one.
