INSTANCES WHERE RESPECTED MALESOFFICIALS APPEAR TO BE NOT

IN YOUR THINKING.

FOR ALL THOSE EXAMPLES OF MALEEMOTION ARE IN FACT NOT NEGATIVE

BUT POSITIVE.

TELEVISION. THAN ITDOES TO BE TOUGH.

>> LOOK AT THE PASSION BEHINDTHIS GUY.

>> CONGRESSMAN WE LOVE IT WHENYOU GET FIBERY LIKE THAT.

>> HE WAS AGGRESSIVE, HE WASPRESIDENTIAL.

>> THAT'S A MAN'SMAN. WHO GETS CHOKED UP ABOUT

ABOUT HIS COUNTRY AND ABOUT THETHINGS HE FEELS PASSIONATE

ABOUT. ALL OF A SUDDEN FEELINGPASSION FOR AMERICA AND THE

HOPES FOR HIS FELLOWAMERICANS IS SOMETHING EVIL?

>> SO THAT'S REALLY THELESSON WE HAVE LEARNED TODAY. IN

POLITICS IT'S OKAY TO BE A PUSSYAS LONG AS YOU'VE GOT A DICK.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
