Creepiness

Jay Nordlinger - the Andy Rooney with less focus - writes:
I believe it says something creepy about America that [Sandra Fluke] is famous — famous and adored. (She is pretty, true.) Her shtick is, “Other people should pay for my birth control, even if it violates their conscience,” right? What a strange Joan of Arc she makes.
Some Might Say the creepiness in America is expressed in the reliability of its creeps jumping at the chance to say SHE FUCKS AND IS FRENCH.
As I was listening to Sandra Fluke, I thought, “The ultimate spokesman for the hook-up culture.” But then came Bill Clinton, later on...
Catch that? She fucks and fucks! And then introduces the fucky guy!
One of the creepiest lines of her very creepy speech was the one that dreamed of an America “in which we decide when to start our families.” What the hell is stopping you now, sister?
"We" is one of those funny words that applies to more than one person, and therefore might include people in this situation.
She acted like it was a crime equivalent to the Holocaust that she has been “verbally attacked” for her views — her public advocacy.
Here's the speech. I'm willing to go out on a limb and say "No she did not."



Goodness, I’m “verbally attacked” every day, and why not?
Indeed sir, for you say something creepy about America.
Why is Sandra Fluke so sacrosanct?
I dunno. Just how many people do you call a slut at the office anyway?
I thought of a fairly recent expression: “Get over yourself.”
I thought of a doughnut. Mmmmmmmmmm, doughnuts.
When I saw the great and the good rise to their feet in admiration for the gibberish this woman was speaking — her moral nonsense — I felt almost physically sick. I’m talking about Joe Biden, Michelle Obama... These are people with considerable power in our country. And this is what’s in their hearts and minds? It is.
"I'm reading their minds...and they are thinking about...SLUTS."
A rude question: If Sandra Fluke were fat and pimply, would she be famous, a national political star? A prime-time speaker at the Democratic convention? Oh, come now...
All sex, all the time. Thanks for playing your part Jay. Any interest in signing on to the Romney campaign to handle press?

the best part is that it was their own slut-shaming efforts that made her famous.

unintended consequences, Dorklinger. I suggest you stop whining about it.

Substance McGravitas said...

Exactly.

Goodness there's some whinyness on the right and due to their poor impulse control it bleeds over into personal insult in a heartbeat.
Then they have to vomit it all up in public.
A pathology of suckitude.

Substance McGravitas said...

If there's more of it until November, uh, good?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

It won't stop in November.

Either Obama wins, and they take the crazy to eleventy-leven, or Rmoney wins and they become 'suck on it libtards' gloater mcgloatersons with a side of "get over it".

Indeed , it could be worthwhile to turn the intertubes off for a couple of years

Isn't Nordlinger the one that was rubbing one out during Palin's speech? I think he is the one that needs to turn off the tv. At least the one in the bedroom.

I don't for a minute believe they don't actually understand that these reproductive health decisions are just basic day in and day out doctor/patient health care. They understand that even if they pretend they don't. And it isn't even that they aren't troubled by the fact that, interspersed with their demands for SMALLER GOVERNMENT and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY they insist the government manage a complex set of rules and exceptions in the case of women's health care. And it isn't even that they have their own version of Shari'a law that believes men have domain over all decisions made by a woman. All of those things are true, but...

BUT, what it is, is they start to imagine that runny, gooey, smelly, confusing, frightening bacon-and-playdoh HOLE, fer fucks sake, and they just completely freak out...

Lowry is Mr. Starbursts but Nordlinger's got some preoccupations too.

fish said...

Ah, right. Who can tell them apart anyway?

Substance McGravitas said...

Jay's the one who writes "Impromptus" because shiny things distract him.

Since I'm so swell I have enough faith in humanity to think that the set of liars is way way smaller than the supporters of the liars. Which makes a lot of folks sincere but dumb.

Heh. the iPod just served up "Sheep" by Pink Floyd.

I mean, if a sex-positive law student gets em crazy, what about a (nother) openly gay senator?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

really, they're just getting themselves WAY worked up because other people aren't as conflicted about sex as they are.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Of course, the Democrats have yet to unveil a zombie-oriented plank to the platform, so they are like Hitler.

It seems that the NRO (IF that is their real name!) is not interested in publishing my comments.

HARRUMPH!

It's late in the day; I think their moderation guys work office hours except for one or two poor poor suckers.

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

Damn, she just wants to receive the benefits she's already paid for with her insurance premiums, can't they understand that?

A rude question: If Sandra Fluke were fat and pimply, would she be famous, a national political star?

Maybe not, but she'd be a victim of the right-wing smear machine nonetheless.

Fluke Derangement Syndrome.
I believe the medical term is cerebral echinococcosis.

can't they understand that?
...when their salaries depend upon their not understanding it? Oh I think not.
