Doing a slow burn

The armchair shrink speaks:

Guys argue that women tend to stew and hold grudges more, sometimes popping up to blow the whistle on a man's bad behavior years later, like a missile out of the night, as Alan Simpson said of Anita Hill.

Yet look at Cheney and Rummy. Their steroid-infused power grabs stem from their years stewing in the Ford White House, a time when they felt emasculated because they were stripped of prerogatives.

They're men, Maureen. They're not necessary at all. Remember?

As DCeiver might say, "Meh."

At least I'm reassured: No need to get TimesSelect.

MoDo is so...perceptive. She knows these guys better than they know themselves. But she's wrong about the steroids. Cheney's still a singles hitter.
