Get A Little Rush!
RUSH: You know, it is my theory -- and this is the cover story on the latest issue of the Limbaugh Letter -- that we are becoming a nation of softies, a bunch of wusses. Here's a story from Leeds, Maine. “A high school basketball coach was fired after telling his players at halftime to reach into their pants to ‘check their manhood.’” (Sigh.) So what? Do these people not understand what goes on in a men's locker room?
“Leavitt Area High School Principal Patrick Hartnett said coach Mike Remillard told the varsity boys Jan. 23 that ‘tonight's game was about who had the biggest (male genitalia) in town.’ ‘He then required his players to all stand up and put their hands down their pants and check their manhood,’
Hartnett said in the statement, which was read to school board members Thursday by Superintendent Thomas J. Hanson a day after the coach was dismissed. All but one player followed the coach's instructions, Hartnett said. The team won the game. Remillard, who was in his fourth season as varsity coach, called the pep talk ‘normal locker room banter from Fort Kent, Maine, to San Diego, California,’ but said he still should not have done it. ‘Was that tactic appropriate? No. And I'm paying the price for it,’ Remillard said.”
Oh, my gosh. You know, there are all kinds of these insults. You go out on the golf course, one of your buddies, opponents, whatever, hits a drive out of bounds, duffs a shot, chunks a shot, hits it a little Oprah, a little fat -- that's what we call it – we say, “Hey, nice. Does your husband play golf, too?” Leave a putt short, “Nice putt, Alice.”
Bill Parcells referring to wide receiver Terry Glenn of the New England Patriots, asked by the media how Glenn was doing, “She's going to get better.” Vince Lombardi, Green Bay Packers, trailing big time in a game, halftime, Lombardi didn't say anything, players kept waiting for the ranting and the raving, the chalkboard and the X's and O's, didn't say anything 'til it was time to go back out, at which time Lombardi said, “All right, let's go, girls.”
The number of occasions in this culture and society in which men are subjected to check your manhood, and don't check your manhood at the door or this kind of thing, this is just the feminization of the culture. You know what? I should have given a count down warning. I know some of you might have been driving by with little kids, driving along, and now your little kids are asking mom what this all means and you've gotta make something up.
Next time I promise, I will – (interruption) what? Oh, come on. Snerdley thinks that most moms don't know what that means. Don't make me say what’s on my mind now. I refuse to believe that. Okay. If you got kids with you, turn off the radio. Thirty seconds. Five, four, three -- you've done it, Snerdley -- two, one. Not only do I not believe that women don't know what check your manhood means, I firmly believe they are the ones doing it, to find out if it exists.

I, finally, agree with Rush on this issue. Our culture IS being 'feminized'--and in a most repugnant way. A real woman knows what she can do and what she cannot do. A real woman knows what a man is and what a woman is--and doesn't try to jam one into the space of the other (don't get cute with that). A real woman knows why men are here and why women are here. A real woman doesn't try to pretend to be other, she doesn't imagine characteristics she does not have.
Our dear Patsy said, the other day, about Hillary: If that comment doesn't illustrate perfectly what the hell is wrong with most women in positions of authority and power. You can't simply issue instructions or commands to the ENEMY and impose the outcome and conduct you would like.
And she was right.
As much as it would be a dream to be as good in roles of leadership as a man can be, most women are not. We simply were not made that way; we can't simply pretend we were. Perhaps it's a lack of focus, or priorities--maybe we see too many sides of an issue, or make too many compromises, or can't be firm enough, or be specific enough--to be effective leaders, but we should know who CAN do that. We have our own sphere of excellence. (And that doesn't mean that every woman cannot be a leader, only that ALL women cannot be.)
We need to let men be the men they are. For God sake's, let coaches talk to their boys how they will; it is men that can talk the special language of other men. Fluffernutting up the thing won't help. Feminizing the world will never produce a man--that is something only another man can do. Feminazis need to realize that their long battle in equalizing the sexes did not work.
God never intended that we should be the same thing. We have our jurisdiction; men have theirs. We need to leave them to that..
