    Scene editor takes the gloves off 

    President Bush is a girlie man. This is the conclusion of a manly man Ohio columnist, Pete Kotz of Scene, one of two Cleveland alternative weeklies.

    In the interest of full disclosure, Ohioblog was told by Kotz's boss that Kotz would be in touch about possible writing assignments. Ohioblog is still desperately waiting for Kotz's call. As much as anything, Ohioblog wanted to meet the man who threatened to punch out the editor of his competition, David Eden.

    Kotz is now picking on someone more his size, the president of the United States. Got to admire the guy's big ones, and in this case, he is right on with what he writes.

    ``Unfortunately, Bush, like so many others, confuses attitude with masculinity,'' Kotz writes.

    For Ohioblog all questions of masculinity became mute when President Bush made the same choice as Ohioblog and joined the National Guard to avoid the war in Vietnam.(Ohioblog at least fulfilled his 6-year obligation fully and served with a militarypolice unit when, during the ealry 1970s, it was not the most pleasant to assignments.) Manly men went to Vietnam. The rest of us stayed home.

    Please read Pete Kotz's column. It's a treat.

    ``If Bush was a real man,'' Kotz writes, he'd know there's no honor in being a country club tough guy, one who beleives that work of men is to rattle their lips, then play another round of golf.''

    Fore, anyone?
