Half a dozen e-mail requests for this in just the past hour or so. That’s how slow this news day is. Although it’s actually sort of topical: In hindsight, I can’t believe I didn’t think of RLE when composing the hierarchy of manliness for this post. What’s even more stereotypically “manly” than a gingerbread house made of beef, bacon, and cheez whiz? Why, R. Lee Ermey inveighing against socialism in front of a cheering crowd, of course.

Seeing him all worked up like this is sweet, if only because it calls to mind his greatest role. By which, of course, I mean the lovably homicidal gay coach in “Saving Silverman.”
