Brit Hume tells the truth the rest of Washington will only whisper. Chris Christie is in trouble because he’s a real man:
“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-fashioned tough guys, run some risks,” Hume said on Sunday’s Media Buzz. […]
“Atmosphere,” Hume specified. “Men today have learned the lesson the hard way that if you act like 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.”
It’s fascinating to contrast the giant Christie man-crush of conservatives like Hume and Brooks with the hate he’s getting from the real base. Just look at the Newsmax headlines, for example. They’re not rushing to explain that a man can’t be talking like a lady.
