The Year of the Girls

August 8, 2007

I can’t stand it. The election extravaganza currently in progress is the most feminized political expo since Amazon Nation held its own in mythical Greece.

See John Edwards. See John’s wife. John looks on hang-dog like he knows he’s done wrong and he knows he must die, while Elizabeth holds the mic, pointing her thumb at her defective male spouse. “We can’t make John a black, and we can’t make John a woman,” she decries, as though it were a flaw (in John, or in the electoral process?) only a liberal could possibly solve.

For the subliterati, Obama, Clinton, and Giuliani have “girls” singing and dancing. They have songs to swing your heart and catch your vote. They wear bikinis. It seems Giuliani could have done this for himself; he didn’t need a “girl.”

Real men don’t deploy their wives to scold Ann Coulter when she beats them up with her little schtick.  Real men don’t use girls to tell you who they are and what they stand for.

Ron Paul has a wife of 50 years named Carol. She has maintained a low profile in his campaign, because she defers to her husband to handle his own career. She is elegant, dignified, and handles herself like a wife, mother, and grandmother: not an entertainer, and not a campaign manager. Ron Paul is a man who can hold his own in a political forum. Ron Paul does not use “girls” to deliver his message.  Ron Paul is a man. Real Americans vote for men. Real Americans will vote for Ron Paul.

    It’s good that the liberals aren’t objectifying women in their campaigns: we all know how feminists dislike the objectifying of women.

    Right, Ruben. They are subjectifying them.

    I think Vic has hit it: The Girls are the subjects of the campaign. The candidates hiring them are the predicates, i.e., the also-rans. There seems to be no object in evidence whatever, just a lot of poofy adjectives.

    Why vote for an artificial man when you can vote for a real one?

    Consider, Scribster, what C. S. Lewis says:

    “We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

    Well said.
