If there is any validity to reincarnation, I would like to come back as Harvey Mansfield. Until recently, his conservative political credentials were compressed, quietly, inside his ankle-high reputation as a professor of government and political theorist at Harvard.
This week, he is the Hottest Author in the Land. His new book “Manliness” (Yale), has feminists and their emasculated men pals in a titter.
For those who appreciate bloodletting in the culture wars, one captivating round played out deliciously on Sunday afternoon on C-Span. When the Elmer Fudd of the feminist movement was mismatched against the cool Prof. Mansfield, the jousting unmasked the lady’s foam-filled agenda.
She wanted to talk about sex. He insisted on being serious. She stomped her feet. She pushed her right hand through her overgrown hair and smirked.
