That’s the only thing I could think of when I read this idiotic Kudlowism (via Oliver Willis):
Am I the only one who saw weakness when President Obama and his departing chief of staff Rahm Emanuel gave each other big, fat, full-bore hug following their speeches at the resignation event in the White House’s East Room on Friday?[…..]
Why not just a dignified, stand-up, serious handshake? That’s what Reagan would have done. A strong handshake shows friendship, respect, and even affection. But a big fat hug seems to go over the line.
Will this kind of thing ever end? Will our failed media ever stop talking about hugs versus handshakes, about presidents’ manly characteristic, about male presidential candidates “lactating”?
