    I'm 63 and I don't give anyone an "old fart pass!" (You can confirm that with my feminist husband.)

    Tweety is a moderate liberal who is sometimes (3+ / 0-) captive of Beltway 'wisdom', sometimes merely his generation's sexism (he is 67 years old).

    But, mostly his heart's in the right place - if only his mouth and ego would get out of the way more often. :)

    It's called evolution -- he should try it some day.

    Seriously, I stopped expecting ANYTHING worthwhile out of Matthews when he waxed
    poetic about Fred Thompson's sex appeal. (Gag.)

    You can call it generational if you want, but for me, it's just wrong, wrong, wrong!

    Frankly, if there's anything generational in this, it's that an awful lot of pundits his age think they don't have to learn anything new anymore, so they just stop making that effort.

    And it always shows.

      benefit of you being there.

      Tweety... not so much apparently. (and those others you mentioned :))

      But the fact that it is generational means there is hope.  This will pass, just as the whole 'gays are the devil!' crap is passing and for the same reason.

      'Course, the cryptofascists and reactionaries will find other things to scare and defraud the rubes with by then.

      And so it goes.
