Down With "Machisma"

This piece by David Gelertner is a "must-read."

I've been critical of Dianne Feinstein's conduct during the Roberts hearings -- particularly her penchant to hold an emtional gun to Chief Justice Roberts' head, demanding that he answer her questions " son, a husband and a father."

Gelertner's coined a term for this kind of intrusive emotion-mongering: "Machisma."

I agreed with most of the article, but had to laugh when he said that Sen. Feinstein was a sensible person who said sensible things most of the time. I needed the laugh, however, so won't complain.
