Howard Kurtz: So what about this bully narrative?
Brit Hume: Well, I would have to say that in this sort of feminized atmosphere in which we exist today, guys who are masculine and muscular like that in their private conduct, kind of old fashion tough guys, run some risk.
Lauren Ashburn: Feminized?
Kurtz: Feminized. Hume: Atmosphere.
Kurtz: By which you mean? Hume: By which I mean that men today have learned the lesson the hard way that if you act like a kind of an old fashioned guy's guy, you're in constant danger of slipping out and saying something that's going to get you in trouble and make you look like a sexist or make you look like you seem thuggish or whatever. That's the atmosphere in which he operates. This guy is very much an old fashioned masculine, muscular guy, and there are political risks associated with that. Maybe it shouldn't be, but that's how it is.Not to engage in easy fat jokes...(but to engage in easy fat jokes)...Chris Christie can be described many, many, many ways. But muscular is certainly not one of them.
I'm sure this archaic "man's man" and terror of the "feminized" society must have really helped with his late son's feelings of being loved by his dad, his huge prick of a dad.
