Is there ever a better day to question another person's "manhood" than Easter?

Especially when "manhood" is associated with "ready to tell others to lob bombs around on your behalf?"

 Maybe when it is on the Anniversary of the Tonkin Gulf resolution?

 Or just over a decade when you were amongst those who "manfully" demanded we bomb and occupy another country...and it went fabulously?

But, of course, if you are wrong about a War you cheered on, there will never be any consequence.

Just keep cashing that check.
New York Times columnist David Brooks on Sunday criticized President Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East and toward Russia. "Let's face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a (I'll say it crudely) but a manhood problem in the Middle East: Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad, somebody like Putin?" Brooks said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
"Deservedly or not" indeed.

I agree, David!!!!

Whatdayasay we raise taxes back to Reagan era levels (back when real men were actors) so we can pay for our manhood?


Thought so.

Sarah Brooks is prohibited by the separation agreement from comment. Possibly that’s best.

Pure projection from Brooks.

The comments section at Talking Points Memo have re-opened, just in time for this story. God,, is he taking a beating.

Deservedly or not, Bobo can eat shit and die.

Obama's got twice the "manhood" of this chickenhawk pompom waver.

Brooks' picture is next to the word "machismo" in the dictionary. But only because it is used to illustrate the nearby word "mackerel."

bobo likes to watch a good war from his perch at the times.

In a few million American households, viewers grabbed their crotches and sneered, "I've got your manhood, right here!"

Way to ruin Easter Sunday, Bobo.

Ah, lessee, Easter is the day the purported Prince of Peace ascends into heaven.

So, naturally, that is the day the Dunce of Dangerous Dickery chooses to treat foreign policy as a schoolyard standoff.

If there's any evidence necessary that ideology makes you stupid, Bobo is it.
