I don't know. Maybe I'm just too "sensitive". Maybe I'm just too much of a "feminist".
But when McCain responds to legislation that would give the human beings serving in a grueling battle zone an equal amount of time at home, experiencing the Value of Their Families [tm] with this statement:
"The effect of this amendment would be to emasculate this surge." (emphasis mine)
Does anyone else sorta/kinda remember that 15% of our current armed forces are female?
I mean, couldn't he say something like: " . . . would be to 85% emasculate and 15% efeminate this surge"? Ah, probably not. I'll bet he knows how to do all 25 of those things.
What was I thinking!? Silly me! You know, it's that time of the month.
