Rush wonders: Is there a Romney “arousal gap”?

posted at 9:20 pm on January 16, 2008 by Allahpundit

Not the first time he’s riffed in this silly vein, unfortunately, but the man’s got three hours to fill and doesn’t have the luxury of cueing up some submoronic video when he’s momentarily out of stuff to say.

There’s a very obvious blogosphere-related joke to be made here, but I’m not going to make it. Not because it’s beneath me. Just because we’re all already thinking of it.

RUSH: Do you remember, we came up with a term here; we’ve had the gender gap, what other gaps have we had? We’ve had the minority gap; the gender gap. We had the NASCAR gap. But we also, we invented a term, the arousal gap. And that was all these lib Democrats and the Drive-By women reporters just swooning over Bill Clinton. “Why not me?” they would ask. We get these stories about the power crackling in his jeans and so forth. So we had an arousal gap problem. Do you realize, I don’t know, ladies and gentlemen, if I can extrapolate here from two calls.

We’ve had two women today simply going bonkers over Mitt Romney. Now, I don’t know if they are part of the Romney organization. I’m not trying to castigate them here. You just don’t know, and I didn’t ask them, but I’m just going to assume here they’re just ardent, just pumped-up Romney supporters. If Romney gets the nomination, and all of these, if there are indeed a lot of these kinds of women out there, they look at Romney, and he’s a good-looking guy, they see the family, and it’s a wholesome, really good-looking family, a lot of things to recommend it, in terms of if you look at what women look at versus men, and political candidates and so forth, can you imagine the arousal gap being on the Democrat side? Well, here’s the difference. There’s a big difference with the Clinton women and Romney women. The Romney women know they don’t have a chance of sleeping with him, but they don’t want to. The Clinton women all wanted to sleep with the guy. Remember Nina Burleigh, TIME Magazine reporterette, she said, “I would personally give Bill Clinton oral sex for saving abortion.” Oh, they were all over. You could see them swoon in the press conferences. So if the arousal gap — especially if Hillary is their nominee (laughter) the arousal gap, can you imagine? Can you imagine the Drive-Bys and the Democrats going nuts if there is a huge amount of women in this country who are going to swoon over Romney the way these two who called here today swooned over him? Whoa, that’s going to be fun to watch, if that all transpires, the arousal gap two.

Exit question for the ladies: Come clean. You’re … not feeling it at all, are you?

Mitt is Ward Cleaver with a nine-digit bank account. Wife, kids, grandkids like him. The family dog, having made its feelings known all over the windshield, has forgiven him.

Yitzchokm on January 16, 2008 at 9:36 PM

That transcript is great. Two things that popped out at me:

but what I love was, last night he was like a little kid at Christmas. He was not condescending. He didn’t act as if he was about to be crowned. He wanted to bring everybody with him. And he’s got it all, because he’s got the business degree, and he understands the law because he has a law degree, too

I get that sense myself. And I find it compelling.

More important than that, though, is for us to begin to see that he believes in Americans’ ability to use their own mind and ingenuity, to produce the best ideas and products, and hope that the government would just step aside and allow the free market system to work and let our government just continue to protect us so that we remain the strongest country in protecting freedom and homeland security and the war on terror, and I…He exudes the most powerful morality I have seen in any candidate.

And optimism in America. I also find that very compelling.

Hey Jay, what if in the next ad he does on social values he says, ‘like my friend Jay says, we have to stop the ACLU’? Would that do it for you? :)

Ya’al can joke about this all you want but women will vote in large numbers for the good looking Mitt over the horrid Hillary in November.

Look at all the mindless Evangelicals voting for Jimmy Carter 2.0 in Iowa this year.

Women like good looking men who love their wives and live up to their wedding vows.

Does anybody remember Donald Rumsfeld becoming a sex object in 2002? Well, women liked the idea that sexy old man was going to keep them and their children safe.

Romney’s good looks and good ethics and honoring of his moral commitments to his family are worth 10 percentage points among women voters.

EJDolbow on January 16, 2008 at 10:29 PM

Um, no I don’t feel it, and it embarrasses me as a woman that there may be silly giggling twits out there who would vote for the guy based on thinking he’s cute or whatever.

Romney may be more classically handsome, but I’d guess Rudy’s more, er, interesting that way.

I’m looking at Mitt on the teevee right now, and yeppers, he is a very attractive guy. I was very surprised when I heard how old he was. He looks much younger (no worries– if he wins the presidency, all that youth will be sucked right out of him).

But I’m not a silly girl, I don’t vote based on looks. I think those people are called “swing voters” or “independents”, and yes, stupid stuff like looks matter to them.

I think Mitt is the closest thing we’ve had to a JFK in the sense that he is attractive, his family is attractive and he exudes class. It’s easy to picture him on the world stage. Quite a contrast to Billy Jeff and his shrew of a wife.

I don’t see it as swooning, just an appreciation of someone who has many admirable qualities (without the womanizing that JFK fell prey to) and the added bonus of having succeeded brilliantly in the business world before entering politics.

Vanceone,

Thanks for that link to Mitt in San Diego. Cool story.

Obama has it too, but he looks too much like a mouse, and he’s so far to the Left that JFK looks like a right winger in comparison.

His looks have nothing to do with supporting him. Right now he’s looking real good as a leader. I support what he supports. Yes, he is good looking, but give us women a break. There are intelligent women out there looking at issues. I think you folks should forget about Fred btw. As the song goes, “Fred is dead”, start looking for someone else to back, seriously.

ctmom on January 17, 2008 at 7:02 AM

Aside from striking me as a moral man, Romney seems to be a competent problem solver. That takes an intelligent, analytical mind. I think that’s what we need in a president. As much as I like Thompson’s ideology, he doesn’t look like he’d survive a full term.

Romney looks the part, there are posters here (female posters and maybe at least one male) that swoon at the mention of Romney.
I understand liking his political stances, he has so many and always changing, but I am talking about the females (and maybe one guy) who are infatuated with his looks. If you say one thing negative, they get offended that you are attacking their boyfriend. I will bet, at least one that I can think of, gets more then excited defending Romney. It is worth just jerking the chain to read her attacks.

This is for the president of the United States, not who looks the best, or who turns you on…but then Mitt does have great looking hair, and he is such a solid family man, such a good man…sigh, Churchill would have never been elected…and then again we would not have to put up with infatuated posters, so it’s a toss up.

right2bright on January 17, 2008 at 11:57 AM

We must never forget our roots, our greatest leaders, and the ones many would not have the guts to elect, because he did not “look pretty”, or that he did not say the “right” thing, or that maybe he drank to much or that he (shudder) smoked…

“I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.”

A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right.

Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.

Perhaps it is better to be irresponsible and right, than to be responsible and wrong.

There is no such thing as a good tax.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

Nancy Astor: “Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison.”
Churchill: “If I were your husband I would take it.”

The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.

Those who can win a war well can rarely make a good peace and those who could make a good peace would never have won the war.

For you Paul lovers:

You ask, What is our policy? I will say; “It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.” You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory—victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.

And finally for all the Mitt-witts:

He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.

Listen you freaking porn freak, I have the facts correct on Mitt’s bio and if you think linking to one of your idiotic posts proves anything, you are even dumber than I thought possible.

Mitt worked for Bain & Company, the consulting firm. He later when on to form Bain Capital, the private equity firm.

Years later, when Bain & Company was floundering he was asked to step in and rescue it, something he succeeded in doing in a year’s time.

He returned to Bain Capital after his turnaround efforts at Bain and Company, and remained there until 1998 when he left to fix the Olympics.

Those are the facts but too many “Bains” must be confusing your poor little flea brain.

By the way, the argument which you intruded into in that freaky way of yours had to do with the false claims that Mitt was an “investment banker” and that he said he “admired” Hezbollah.

For someone who claims that I am “stalking you” you may want to stay out of these discussions because it only serves to enhance your reputation as a dullard.
