Feminists Are Funny, Human

Huntress-With-Power-Girl

I’m always entertained when feminists freak out about the way women are portrayed in comic books. “Real women don’t look that way,” they will howl. “These are just fantasies!” The appropriate response, of course, is to laugh and reply, “Yes. They are fantasies. That’s the whole point.” One then notes that both men and women are portrayed unrealistically in the media and that the ideal of heroic nudity is an old one.

I bring this up yet again because there’s a remarkably amusing essay over at Jezebel by Dodai Stewart in which the author notes that men are being asked to conform to unrealistic standards of beauty but that it doesn’t matter because it makes her feel all funny in the bottom of her stomach. Here’s Stewart:

The 2016 Democratic Convention Needs to Be In Miami

Floridians learning Miami is considered for the 2016 DNC/STORY Facebook

Three weeks after the RNC whittled down their list of potential 2016 convention sites, the party in charge of the White House released its own list of prospective 2016 host cities. After the 2012 funding disaster that still has the DNC in the red, you’d have to imagine by 2016, they’d be caught up by then.

The DNC sent requests out for proposals to Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Miami, Nashville, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and Salt Lake City.

The Democratic National Convention in Utah. Let that soak in. This is SLC this past Patriot’s Day:

Senator Kay Hagan (D., N.C.) has released a new radio ad (see below) accusing her potential GOP challenger, Thom Tillis, of hypocrisy. The ad is ridiculously dishonest.

According to the ad, Tillis has attacked Hagan for calling the unpopular healthcare law, once known as Obamacare, “a great idea.” Hypocrisy!

Caitlin Egan Twerks The 2014 Boston Marathon

Yesterday’s Boston Marathon was a shining example of America’s indomitable will and “never say die” attitude. Not only was it cathartic, it was also the first time since Ronald Reagan was president that an American won the whole thing. Murica.

Thousands finish the 26.2 mile crucible in various states of mental, physical, and emotional disrepair. For instance, one poor soul didn’t crush enough electrolytes and had to be carried across Boylston Street. If being shouldered across the finish line is on one end of the spectrum, this finish is on the opposite:

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is misguided, science has found.

Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false.

Awkward: There’s a Typo in This Grimes Campaign Email Attacking Her Opponent’s Gaffes

This is awkward. Alison Lundergan Grimes’s campaign sent out a fundraising email on Monday suggesting that given the ”gaffes” of her GOP opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, it’s no surprise that she is leading a recent poll (conducted by a Democratic firm).

Unfortunately, her campaign also gaffed:

Oops.

Poor Paul Krugman

Paul Krugman gets his.

Paul Krugman gets his.

Last week, Gawker reported that New York Times columnist/New York Times best-selling author/ABC News contributor/Nobel Prize-winning economist and textbook author/Leigh Bureau featured speaker Paul Krugman will make $225,000 for nine months of “work” at the City University of New York’s Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research department devoted to the study of income inequality.

Much mockery ensued. But Krugman’s fellow liberals rushed to his defense.

Arlington Approves $42,000 For ‘Pub Crawl Support’

It’s no secret America needs to improve her infrastructure. It’s so obvious, it’s become a favorite talking point for President Obama to use when he talks about jacking up taxes.

Improving our lives starts in our communities. For that, we look across the moat to Arlington, Va., which voted last week on a sensible way to spend taxes.

At the Arlington County Board’s budget mark-up meeting this afternoon, the County Board approved an addition $42,000 to the police specifically for “pub crawl support.” Pub crawls in Clarendon, Courthouse and Ballston have drawn crowds close to 5,000-6,000 people, County Board Chair Jay Fisette said.

It’s 2014 and FINALLY we have government working for us!

That means proper safety at RiRas.
