Peggy Noonan: Sex and the Sissy

Peggy Noonan is one of my favorite writers, and she was in rare form over the weekend with this column, comparing Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, and Wisconsin's own Golda Meir with would-be newest member of the Woman And World Leader Club, Hillary Clinton.

For the inevitible sniplet, I chose this disturbing paragraph:

It is prissy. Mrs. Clinton's supporters are now complaining about the Hillary nutcrackers sold at every airport shop. Boo hoo. If Golda Meir, a woman of not only proclaimed but actual toughness, heard about Golda nutcrackers, she would have bought them by the case and given them away as party favors.
I guess that means she wouldn't autograph mine, even if I said please?
