Boehner’s Tears

Jezebel and DoubleX had a good time with Rep. John Boehner’s weepy speech Tuesday night. Many of us are asking what would have happened if Nancy Pelosi had cried about losing the speakership? Why did the pundits snicker when Hillary welled up in New Hampshire, and then, after she won, accuse her of deliberately faking her emotion? Could there be a double standard? Is it possible that men who are overcome with emotion are caring and sensitive, but women who do so are either weak or scheming?
