This Just In: Men Lack Free Will!

Dr. Laura Schlessinger, on New York governor Eliot Spitzer:

"When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings, sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he's very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs."

Basically, apologists like for poor male behavior blame everyone but the man for his dishonest behavior. When women don't pay enough attention to their men, they push their men away into the arms of another women who lures him in. He just can't help it. He's like a pinball being battered around in a machine of women's wants. All this, of course, begs the question: If men are so utterly not responsible for their actions, why are they fit for world domination?

But anyway...

Does "Dr" Laura's conception of men offend any guys out there. She's sort of basically saying that men are overgrown man-boys who are ruled by their self-absorbed need for attention and ever-present desire to fuck? And that, the man has no free will to do the honorable thing and, oh, maybe talk to his wife about marital problems?

It's like a perpetrator of domestic violence telling his battered spouse "you made me do it!"

Thanks for today's "lesson," Doc.

PS- Is anyone else wondering what's taking David Vitter so long to resign?
