Looking For A Mandate?

Sounds like someone else has a bit of a mancrush. Glenn Greenwald (06.14.07), via Crooks and Liars (links in original):
"I've written a fair amount recently about the media's obsession with the faux-masculinity of GOP candidates in general, and the tough-guy military persona of Fred Thompson in particular, and don't have all that much to add about that specific topic at the moment.

Still, this dialogue last night about Fred Thompson from Chris Matthews -- who is really just the slightly less restrained id version of most media stars -- is simply too extraordinary not to note:

'Can you smell the English leather on this guy, the Aqua Velva, the sort of mature man's shaving cream, or whatever, you know, after he shaved? Do you smell that sort of -- a little bit of cigar smoke?'"

Chris Matthews on Fred Thompson's sexiness and smells

Someone needs a cold shower.

But really now. English leather and Aqua Velva?
