    •  Yes, and actually the way the century rounded off (0+ / 0-)

      I was cutting them about 30 or 40 years of slack, only because when I first wrote the 1960s snuck up on them too fast, it seem confusing.

      Heck I was born in the 1956 so I grew up in a generation where men needed to do a lot of learning, awareness, sensitivity training, and learning.  But, how do get beyond the 1980s without knowing that it's not going to work to tell an adult woman in public, and in the media,  who has just won election to one of the most powerful offices in the world, that "you are going to sit her down and explain how a budget works, and maybe if she concentrates enough to get it, you might just grace her with the opportunity to work you you."  

      How much "sensitivity" does it take to know that's not going to end well?  So, I still can't tell whether folks think he did this as intentional put down, or if it was an accident.

      And, neither can I tell which would be a sadder display of stupidity.
