An instant classic via the Federalist and a concise demonstration of what the Denver Post had in mind when it endorsed Gardner a few weeks ago, dismissing Mark “Uterus” Udall’s incessant war-on-women messaging in Colorado as an “obnoxious one-issue campaign [and] an insult to those he seeks to convince.” Here’s NARAL backing Udall up with the stupidest ad of the campaign, in which a guy who — famously — backs making birth control available over the counter somehow becomes the grim reaper of prophylactics, singlehandedly banning the pill and triggering a run on condoms coast to coast. I’m surprised that NARAL thinks he’d leave condoms alone; if the GOP’s goal, as more excitable feminists assure themselves, is to keep women pregnant and out of the work force, it makes no sense to leave condoms on the shelves after the pill has disappeared. Maybe NARAL figured that a simple double-standard critique was more effective. Sure, Cory will allow birth control for men, but not for women. Apart from the freely available OTC birth control for women that he supports, I mean.
Listening to the ad, John McCormack had an image of Gardner as the Hamburglar, going house to house to pilfer women’s pills when they weren’t looking. What really cinches this as a classic, though, is this line, the funniest inadvertent self-parody of progressive attitudes since Pajama Boy.
Climate change that *everyone* knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denies it. Sweet Pea, Cory denies science.
Mentioning “science” to flatter progressives that they’re the last bulwark against a new Dark Age along with the vague, ridiculous term “weirding the weather” feels like a goof on the sort of lefty who gushes loudly and regularly about science to advertise his intellect but isn’t real hung up on the details. (See, e.g., the Neil deGrasse Tyson fanboys.) Why can’t Cory see the weirding, Sweet Pea? Does he hate books ‘n stuff?
Exit question: Odd that a group that’s all about “empowering” women would feature a man explaining politics and current events to his ignorant girlfriend, no?
