I’ve never been right about such things…but don’t let that stop me

Is there ever a better day to question another person’s “manhood” than Easter?

Especially when “manhood” is associated with “ready to tell others to lob bombs around on your behalf?”

Maybe when it is on the Anniversary of the Tonkin Gulf resolution?

Or just over a decade when you were amongst those who “manfully” demanded we bomb and occupy another country…and it went fabulously?

But, of course, if you are wrong about a War you cheered on, there will never be any consequence. Just keep cashing that check.

New York Times columnist David Brooks on Sunday criticized President Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East and toward Russia.

“Let’s face it, Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a (I’ll say it crudely) but a manhood problem in the Middle East: Is he tough enough to stand up to somebody like Assad, somebody like Putin?” Brooks said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Deservedly or not” indeed.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
