  •  I explained what I thought. (7+ / 0-)

    I think it was about economics and class and had little to do with Senator Warren's gender.  The problem with over-defining the concept is that it will lose any explanatory or pursuasive force.

    •  I tend to agree re "mansplaining" (6+ / 0-)

      Rutigliano seems to just be parrotting CofC talking points, presuming that as a businessman, he is offering expert testimony that no one will question. Then, on finding out that his rational & math are being called into question, he tries fecklessly to pivot to another talking point, which Warren then calls for what it is.

      Rutigliano's words are intended to snow all those legislators, not merely condescend to female legislators as lesser lights among them.  

      PrezObama's only mistake in the sequester is that he assumed that the Republicans would be more loyal to their oath of office to serve the people than their oath to Norquist to never close tax loopholes.
