11/05/2005: Dowd reviews the case on allowing WOMEN to RUN the WORLD...
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: Men are simply not biologically suited to hold higher office. The Bush administration has proved that once and for all.
These guys can't be bothered to run the country. They are too obsessed with frivolous stuff, like fashion and whether they look fat. They are catty, sometimes even sabotaging their closest friends. They are deceitful minxes and malicious gossips.
And heaven knows they're bad at math. Otherwise, W. would realize that a 60 percent disapproval rating, or worse, means that most Americans would like some fresh blood in the administration. It's appalling to see ringleaders of the incompetent, mendacious crew who rushed into Iraq but not New Orleans getting big promotions and posh consulting jobs...."
-- Maureen Dowd (NY Times).
Well, I've often been on a megalomaniac rant and rave about What if Women Ran the World and HOW much BETTER off we all would be.
But it's Time - Ladies and Gents - for a Full Scale Revamp of this Male Model of Societal madness. Geena Davis is merely setting the stage. [Tho' I've never seen an episode of that show, "Commander in Chief", so can't say if she plays the role with any realism or is doing a good sales pitch for having a Female Executive] But there are oodles of historical models of Female Leaders of countries to look to. Consider their skills and prowess as Commanders-in-Chief and how successful many women have been in these roles.
So, What do you think? Time for a real *Change of Gender* for the ole U.S. of A.??
Oh, and BTW, Maureen, You've got my VOTE!!! [Are you old enough to RUN for the Office of the President?]
