Love-Muscular Liberals?

Perhaps someone can recommend me a book about how political rhetoric can be an unconscious dramatization and projection of sexual hang-ups, in particular erectile dysfunction and lingering doubts about virility:

Just as Thatcher stiffened the first President Bush’s resolve (as Bush was wavering on whether to drive Saddam Hussein from Kuwait, she said: ‘George, don’t go wobbly on me’), Blair has stiffened American policy when stiffening was needed, most notably as Bill Clinton seemed to be wavering over Kosovo.

– Richard Perle’s defence of Tony Blair seems a classic example.
