Alpha Girls and Beta Boys --- Pathetic whimpers, no chance of a bang

Alpha Girls and Beta Boys

This Minnesota GOPvideo, courtesy of Adam Weinstein at Mojo is pretty hard to take. (You have to watch through to the end to see the worst of it.)

I can't help but be reminded of Sarah Palin's stirring words:

"The choice of photo for the cover of this week's Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this "news" magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant. The Runner's World magazine one-page profile for which this photo was taken was all about health and fitness -- a subject to which I am devoted and which is critically important to this nation. The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin.

I wonder if she'd have a problem with this video? Hmmm.

It's hard to know what to say about it other than, "would you want your mother to see this?" After all, most of the Republican women they objectify in the beginning are younger (or their pictures are from when they were younger) while most of the "Democrat" women are well over 50. But hey, when a conservative can insult women, liberals and older people all in one short video, they've hit the trifecta.

This "hot GOP babes" theme is so pervasive that I have to wonder if these conservative male homunculi have convinced themselves that because there are attractive female GOP celebrities it naturally follows that GOP males are big time alphas. I don't know how to break it to them, but it's the women who are the alphas not their goopy fanboys.
