Really? That was supposed to constitute crying? A few imperceptible sniffles and suddenly John "If your son was dead maybe you'd feel okay getting $400 haircuts too" Edwards is all "time for some masculine steely resolve"? Yeah, I don't think so. Here's the thing about crying: it's the purest — and vulgarest and most abusable — physical manifestation of and/or appeal to one's "empathy gene." Hillary chokes up and says she has so many ideas about how to run the country, and it reminds us of the time we moved out of the first apartment we shared with a livein and thought OMG we had so many ideas about how we were going to, like, paint shit together. Oh sure, a dude looks at our "ideas" and probably claims he sees "romantic delusions" (and probably also, "drama.") And fair enough. But without tears how can you adequately express the simple sadness when grim reality gets in the way of the dreams you dared to dream, the hopes you so AUDACIOUSLY held? Or, uh, react when Tara Reid loses her virginity in American Pie? We discuss Hillary's crying in a very sappy crappy hour ATJ.
