STRANGE LOVE

Athenae, posting on the premiere liberal blog run by Atrios, seriously thinks the public displays of affection (or rather, affectation) between Teresa and John Kerry are admirable and healthy. Athenae swoons:

I know I’ve said this before, but if we truly are electing people based on who you want to have a beer with, the last guy I want to have a beer with is the jerk who treats his wife like dirt, condescends to her in public, or complains about her in front of me. The married people I have beer with on a regular basis have (from what I can tell) healthy, adult marriages based on like and mutual respect, and nothing warms me up to somebody faster than that person praising their spouse. I have no idea what goes on in the Bushes’ marriage, nor, for that matter, in the Kerrys’. But I like what I see of the two of them, that’s for sure.

Hmm. The happily married, mutually respectful people I know (myself and my husband and included) do not sigh heavily and roll their eyes looking petulantly bored when one or the other partner is speaking. The happily married spouses of veterans I know do not mock their husbands’ traumatic war experiences in public. The adoring wives I know do not have huge conniption fits over adopting their husbands’ names.

I don’t drink, but if I did, I would be afraid to get anywhere near John, Teresa, and their beer mugs.
