GUEST,Dr. Ruth BS: The way it should be...... (106* d) RE: BS: The way it should be...... 02 Jun 05

It's interesting to note that Martin Gibson has picked up on Arnold Schwarzenegger's use of "girlie man" as a put-down and is using it over and over, and over …. and over …. and over …. and over ….    This is not unlike Ronald Reagan's frequent use of Clint Eastwood's line in one of the Dirty Harry movies, "Go ahead! Make my day!" As one comedian observed, as an actor, other than "Win one for the Gipper," Reagan didn't have much in the way of his own movie lines to draw on. "NO, Bonzo! On the PAPER!" doesn't quite cut it, and it's not that easy to work into a policy speech.

Martin Gibson obviously has a problem with girls and women as is evidenced by his repeatedly references to women, not as women, but as vulgar terms for female sex organs (e.g., "stupid cunt," etc.). It obviously rings his chimes. The "girlie man" epithet (which was a stupid thing to say even when Arnie said it) has touched some kind of deep, psychological prejudice in MG's subconscious.
