They Say "Man Crush" Like It's A Bad Thing

CNN (Center for Neocon News) just put up this gem:

(CNN) — It has become one of MSNBC host Chris Matthew's most infamous lines of the 2008 presidential election:

"I felt this thrill going up my leg," Matthews said the night Obama resoundingly defeated rival Hillary Clinton in the Virginia and Maryland Democratic primaries.

And former CBS News Correspondent Bernard Goldberg, who has long alleged liberal bias in the media, highlighted that line as indicative of the media's "slobbering" press coverage of candidate Obama during his campaign for the White House.

"That's not commentary, that's a man-crush," Goldberg declared on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday.

Like THAT's a bad thing!!1

This one hits close to home really. Its especialy hurtful because even I have felt the joy of a throbbing man crush (purely hetero-platonic btw) on occasions. Its perfectly natural / healthy because it (man crush) helps men form ideations about what they want to be and motivates them (us) to strive for that ever elusive masculine ideal.
