From the DC Madam to Late Night Shots

[Updated 7/18/2007]

These are the animals running our country:

Late Night Shots

Think Pretty In Pink where Blane is a young Republican blueblood and Andie is another young Republican (although tragically nuveaux riche) making a sharp right turn down a dark, soulless rabbit hole where privilege, class and premarital sex between 20 something social Conservatives finds its way onto the a'la minute gossip pages of the internets.

Here is an edifying quote:

I could put up with 12. Anything more than that without a good explanation, and the girl is incapable of being in a serious relationship.

I prefer high 's. It usually means they really like to have sex, and that they are very good at it. And the idea that you might be exposing yourself to a serious disease is thrilling and really gets my blood flowing.

I think one sexual partner for every 2-3 years is acceptable for a girl from a good family. Sex just isn't something girls should be doing if they are interested in marrying me.

Getting tainted by older men
Posted By: Roger Chillingworth on 07-02-2007 9:16 am I'm concerned with a lot of the younger ladies in DC who are hooking up with and dating older guys. Whenever I first start seeing a girl I go through a checklist of what is acceptable, and having dated a guy who is 10+ years older than her is a tremendous red flag. I hope some of these younger girls realize the scarlet letter they are attaching to themselves by engaging in this scandalous behavior.

I agree wholeheartedly. Nothing says "I blow guys for money" like dating some old rich dude. And the scarlet letter they are attaching to themselves is "W." For "whore."
I haven't read anything so infuriatingly mysogynistic since coming across the LA Times articles about Girls Gone Wild autere Joe Francis.

Where is this disdainful new paradigm coming from? The rule of law, the very rules of civility, and the constitution itself is but toilet paper to the jet-set of privileged brats we have roaming DC, New York, LA and even pinko San Francisco. "They" are taking over our bars, our parks and our government with their fuck-all, I do what I want life philosophy -- it is shocking to me that the Neoconservative movement hasn't made an effort to co-opt Paris Hilton (who certainly is from old enough money, and if its not old enough, it is plentiful enough) as a coifed, younger version of Anne Coulter -- oh, but she's a whore. Tsk.

And now, a photo of our Dear Leader:

ETA - I suppose this entry is as good a place as any to mention en passant the following Glenn Greenwald blog from today which refers to a Johann Hari article about a Neocon cruise in the Independent. This is what happen when polo wearing date-rape thugs grow up, discover Botox and the "white man's burden." An excerpt:
I am standing waist-deep in the Pacific Ocean, both chilling and burning, indulging in the polite chit-chat beloved by vacationing Americans. A sweet elderly lady from Los Angeles is sitting on the rocks nearby, telling me dreamily about her son. "Is he your only child?" I ask. "Yes," she says. "Do you have a child back in England?" she asks. No, I say. Her face darkens. "You'd better start," she says. "The Muslims are breeding. Soon, they'll have the whole of Europe."

I am getting used to these moments – when gentle holiday geniality bleeds into... what? I lie on the beach with Hillary-Ann, a chatty, scatty 35-year-old Californian designer. As she explains the perils of Republican dating, my mind drifts, watching the gentle tide. When I hear her say, " Of course, we need to execute some of these people," I wake up. Who do we need to execute? She runs her fingers through the sand lazily. "A few of these prominent liberals who are trying to demoralise the country," she says. "Just take a couple of these anti-war people off to the gas chamber for treason to show, if you try to bring down America at a time of war, that's what you'll get." She squints at the sun and smiles. " Then things'll change."

Is there any question in a sane person's mind that this is simple racism and xenophobia? Not only are all Muslims out to "get" the "European" (white) world, but they are doing it my breeding like the sweaty brown little monkeys they are. This is the same sentiment eternal Frat-boy high-fiving motherfucker Bill O'Reilly has expressed, again and again, with regard to the brown menace of Latino encroachment on "European" Americans:
O'Reilly continued: "So they, under the guise of being compassionate, want to flood the country with foreign nationals, unlimited, unlimited, to change the complexion -- pardon the pun -- of America. Now, that's hatred, too." O'Reilly later asserted that the Times "want[s] to change the white, Christian male power structure" and concluded: "So you've got racism on the anti-Latino front, and you have racism on the anti-Christian, white male front. Aha! Isn't that interesting?"
Yes that is interesting Bill. We're living in a culture of death because not enough white people are having babies -- Bill himself has two, which as any anti-Zionist mouth-breathing White power advocate will tell you, having mastered mathematics, that this does not offset the brown people out-breeding whites 2 or 3 to 1.

But, I have to admit that I agree with Bill at least in that "they" (meaning me) want to disrupt the "white, Christian male power structure" in this country -- see above for stunning examples of this zeitgeist. White, Christian men have had their way with America and I honestly believe we are worse off for it. Sure, George W. Bush may in fact be a true believer, and I can't say one way or the other if he is genuine in his proclamations of faith, but if he is a true believer, what he truly believes is delusional and sociopathic; there is no shortage of evidence, anecdotal though it may be, that he is not alone is his pathological disdain for human life in general in the upper echelons of America's white, Christian-male power structure.
