Um…sure about that, Ruth?

Ruth Marcus, astute columnist for The Washington Post and occasional participant on The News Hour, came up with a “Huh?” moment in her Labor Day posting in the Post.

In an otherwise dead-on as usual piece on Palin, Marcus writes, “No male politician accused a female reporter of being hormonal or frigid.”

That sentence ought to be easily disproved.  Perhaps it can’t be, but I would be mightily surprised.

If not accusing, at least wondering by men about various female biological functions and influences is so ubiquitous in our culture that it’s hard to conceive that somehow female reporters are exempt, by anyone.

Apologizing in advance if I leapt too soon, Here’s to you Ms Marcus.

Trust, but verify.
