In 1967, a spaghetti Western turned up over here with the title God Forgives … I Don’t. Which is perhaps odd, since according to Charita Goshay, the latter option is usually exercised by women:
Though Obama used George W. Bush’s presidency to club McCain over the head, and even though everyone knows Obama’s going to unravel virtually everything Bush has done, Bush took the gracious step this week of inviting the Obamas to the White House, even before the voting machines had a chance to cool off.
Why? Because they’re guys. Guys can do that.
It’s one of the characteristics I like most about men. They can pound on one another like cheap steak, yet somehow are able to leave it on the field. Those who can’t get tagged as vengeful paranoids, a la Richard Nixon, or thin-skinned crybabies who do not play well with others.
Women, on the other hand:
Newsweek magazine reports that Obama was dismayed when, at one point, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton refused to shake his hand on the Senate floor.
Sounds about right. Obama probably should consider himself lucky he didn’t end up on the floor.
That’s because women can hold a grudge until Jesus returns. We can recall details from an argument in 1982 and what you were wearing.
I can vouch for 1981, anyway.
Incidentally, the protagonist in that spaghetti Western was named “Cat Stevens.” I wonder if at any point he was being followed by a moon shadow.
