"Ugh! Me real man--me not sensitive!"
Faux-macho chickenhawk Dick Cheney thinks it's hilarious that John Kerry used the word "sensitive" in connection with the war on terror.
Dick's longing to be cool like Governor Arnold, perhaps?
I'd bet Dick would have just loved to have scored some major chortles from the brainless he-men in America by calling Kerry a 'girlie-man'.
The difference is that it actually worked for the star-powered Guvnah Arnold. (Well, let's just say it worked out for Guvnah Ahnold. Let's face it, the comment was incredibly goofy -note I didn't say insensitive-).
Knowing that our troops are over in Najaf fighting Iraq's ever-blossoming disaster of a civil war and that we Americans were lied to while he kept a terribly straight face, Cheney just looked like a desperate, unpopular, and incredibly insensitive vice-president by mocking "not-so-curious" George's opponent.
It doesn't take a cave man or an animal to intelligently lead a war.
It takes a great military. We have that.
It takes a leader who's not afraid to place humble reliance and trust in his subordinate military commanders when they advise him that they need a certain number of troops. Listening is an important form of sensitivity.
It takes intuitive perception to know when it's the right war and the right time. Perceiving is a form of sensitivity.
It takes moral and intellectual sensitivity when it comes to a Commander in chief securing and maintaining the trust of his own citizens as well as that of leaders from other nations. Respect and compassion are forms of sensitivity.
Certainly no one in the Bush administration.
