This is getting just plain weird.
What the hell happened to the party of supposedly rugged manliness? Remember when the Republican brand deliberately exulted in what N.O.W. called out as "Macho Swagger?"
Well, we are through the looking glass, kids. The increasingly blubbering Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) has some company. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) couldn't hold back the waterworks today, as is shown in the video below. On the floor of the U.S. Senate, no less, the affairs of state simply became too much to bear!
I have to ask the obvious questions; Didn't we just have an election cycle where Sharon Angle scored points by telling harry Harry Reid to "man up?" Didn't we just suffer through Christine O'Donnell telling her opponent to put on his "man pants?" Now, just because these two nut-jobs didn't achieve ballot victory, I don't think there is reason to believe that what the conservative base craves is a bunch of whining little cry-babies. Get a grip! Really. You're starting to make a lot of us kind of uncomfortable.
