Obama: Our First Bitch President

This is pretty much all you need to know about radical feminists: as a result of her devaluation and/or inversion of the male-female polarity, a "woman's inherent sweetness can turn to bitterness, changing her into a fury who, in revenge for man's weakness or arbitrariness, will harass him mercilessly" (Perry).

Yes, we all know the type. No normal man would be attracted to, say, Janeane Garofalo. And yet, she probably has a boyfriend, poor bastard. The question is, why?

Probably for the same reason -- only inverted -- that Richard Ramirez or the Menendez brothers are never without female companionship. Indeed, Erik, Lyle, and Richard all married in prison.

By way of contrast, marrying Janeane Garofalo -- or her type in general -- would amount to entering prison.

Now, just as the child will test boundaries but unconsciously wants and needs them to be there in order to feel safe and secure in the world, a woman will always test her man. Way it is.

And yet, this makes perfect sense from an evolutionary standpoint, because deep down no woman wants to be stuck with a weak man. The testing is like an inborn Wimp Detector.

Beneath this wimp detecting harassment, according to Perry, is the "attempt to have him become the man she would have him be."

In other words, she is unconsciously "hoping that he may yet rise to the challenge and not fall for the shrill bait of her badgering; that he will stand in impervious strength before her assault, while displaying magnanimous generosity, thus rescuing her from her own restless and potentially chaotic nature."

Imagine, for example, if Larry Summers had reacted in this calm and manly fashion to the shrill attacks of the angry feminists when he made his crack about women and engineering. Indeed, he might have responded with a good-natured you're making my point much more effectively than I ever could.

It's similar to how Muslims react to charges that they are violent by behaving violently (and I suppose this would be the male analogue to female violence, which is more verbal, hysterical, relationship-bound, and passive-aggressive).

Yesterday a thought popped into my head. What does it mean to be "cool"? It seems to me that coolness essentially equates to competence. Someone who is competent at a difficult and challenging endeavor -- especially when under pressure -- qualifies as cool.

Women obviously thought Obama was cool four years ago (70% of unmarried women voted for him, as did an even higher percentage of androgynous Yelvertons). Upon closer inspection it turns out that he was indeed cool, but with nothing to be cool about.

In other words, he has no competence at all, neither generally nor in any particular subject area. At best he has a nice burnished timbre to his voice, but he has never uttered an interesting thought with it. So, why didn't be become a TV journalist?

Is there a name for this kind of vacuous coolness, or breezy pseudo-mastery? Yes, I think so. It's called "celebrity."

A celebrity is, of course, famous for being famous. But celebrities are also cool for being cool. Which is why all the cool celebrities still support Obama. Professional courtesy.

Perry says something similar, that "when a man displays commanding self-domination and lucid reason this normally has an irresistible and deeply liberating effect on woman, for she is now free to be totally feminine and thus to blossom without fear of exposing her vulnerability -- this vulnerability or sensitivity being a necessary dimension of her nature."

But for the same reason, the fake sort of self-domination affected by Obama provokes the sort of fake feminine response we see, for example, in a gushing Chris Matthews, or in the liberal media more generally.

This media, being liberal, is "feminized," but obviously not in a healthy way. Thus Obama is their dream man -- or a man in their dreams.

I predicted several years ago that Obama's fake coolness would crack under the pressure of actual expectations. Again, the facade of coolness could be maintained so long as he was borne upward on nothing more substantial than the winds of white liberal guilt.

But look what he has now become: petty, peevish, vindictive, brittle, petulant, small-minded, mean-spirited, acid-tongued. In short, our soon-to-be ex-wife.

Indeed, in recent weeks Obama has gone full Garofolo on us. Again, some people no doubt find this attractive, just as, at the other end, some people find pathological masculinity attractive.

But we at the One Cosmos Decision Desk have determined that there just aren't enough of them this time around, so it's all over except for the bitching.

Equal time: seems to me that our first real bastard of a president was Andrew Jackson.

Good thought: the first modern Democrat president and the first postmodern Democrat president; or, the first president who wasn't a founder and the last one to reject them.

I was very much privileged to grow up with a self-dominating father. He was almost domineering, but, as a son, you have two ways to address that. One is to become too compliant. The other is to internalize it -- there's a better word but I can't think of it, sort of like absorb. Anyway, it is telling that my nephew, who was practically raised by his grandfather after my brother-in-law's early death, very much internalized Dad's model as I eventually did. The three of us are/were very much alike. This requires a "rebellion contract", you might say, between father and son. We have to step away in order to become self-dominant on our own.

On the other hand, there is my brother who is known for never having a drink of alcohol of any kind. Dad once remarked about that to my nephew saying, "There's something wrong with a boy who never had a drink." Or stood up in some way.

Mark Twain said something like when he was fourteen he thought his father was the most ignorant man he'd ever met, and at eighteen he was surprised by what the old man had learned in four years.

The lower castes that cannot dominate themselves evoke the Obama-types who want to dominate others as a replacement for self-domination.

By way of contrast, it would be interesting to know how many Mormons are on the dole compared to liberals.

Obama, Clinton, Biden, Edwards, the list goes on -- throw in Gingrich -- people who cannot control themselves think they can fix it by controlling the world and making it all better. That almost makes a perverse kind of sense.

I see that now -- in the context of the post, Obama could fake self-control so much better than, say, Clinton who had the bad-boy-cool vibe. Clinton was just as shallow and self-serving as any other bad boy, and Obama, as we now know, is nothing but a facade and a puppet.

And government of course needs to grow ever bigger as individual self-control is now down to about 53% of population.

People who cannot master themselves evoke Controllers in the same way criminals evokes the police. Which is why fatherless boys often encounter a merciless father later, in the form of the penal system.

And the bitchy president seems to evoke the bitchiness in his followers.

I can't wait until this election is over, if only so I don't have to endure any more hysterical eruptions of Obama fervor from certain family members who seem to think that if they shove him in people's faces even more, minds will be changed. Is there even such thing as an undecided voter at this point?

Also, I'd like to quibble about the timbre of his voice. I find it about as appealing as the purpleness of his lips; it sends shivers down my spine - the sort that usually portend fervent prayers to the porcelain god. But maybe that's just me...

I read somewhere that she was once involved with Gary Shandling. Nevertheless, greatest TV show ever.

Obama's voice also makes my flesh crawl, but I can imagine him as a late night FM deejay back in day.

Come to think of it, Shandling is starting to look like an old lesbian, isn't he?

Re the timbre - Nah... I don't like it either. Not to be rude, but I have only heard a total of two paragraphs spoken by him. The leftist memes are all that seem to emit, so I consider it better to avoid.

One thing about Obama that occurred to me today is that he doesn't seem to parade around outside his family like Bill Clinton, which is interesting.

Most of the posts I see on Facebook are entirely intended to motivate/persuade via guilt. Like, "it's obvious, guys, you know who to vote for... sigh." No arguments in the same way that there weren't any last time but instead of hype, it seems to be an emotion of finger-shaking. The implication is always that not voting for Obama is voting for exploitation.

I was right. Gary Shandling has been outed as an old lesbian.

I could almost live with that. My feed has a haranguer whose every political post heavily implies that anyone voting for Romney must be stupid. He really likes exclamation points, too...

Re. the old lesbians, I find it strangely amusing that Larry Flynt makes that list as well. It seems fitting, somehow...

re: the old lesbians. That really made me wince. It seems a good portion of them still have haircuts that they *might* have been able to pull off in the bloom of youth.

For whatever insane reason there are many young females who go gaga over young androgynous males (especially if you are a rocker). But it is nearly impossible to make work past say 25 or 30 years old. Though, of course, many still try.

Oh and what's with all the pursing of the lips. Who lets these guys think this is an okay way to be.

Great series on the masculine/feminine complimentarity. Although I'm still smarting from some of those uncomfortable truths that hit home.

If I can blame me Mum for trying to make me a metrosexual I can thank my Dad for taking me hunting as a teen thereby pulling me from the brink. The boy Scouts also get much credit.

Man, the damage to society from 1970s middle-class liberal suburbia is vast.

Anna, I'm with you. I have avoided listening to the O. Before the debates I had watched, maybe 15 minutes total of the man these last 5 years.

julie, Jack, Guys wearing pink shirts with birth control pills on them?!? This sounds vaguely familiar, where was it?

Ah!

"because deep down no woman wants to be stuck with a weak man. The testing is like an inborn Wimp Detector."

Those guys failed the test.

To add to the confusion I am sure that the pink-shirted males are praised and cooed over by all the liberal females even as the ladies simultaneously hold them in utter contempt.

It makes for good times.

John - yes, they really did.

Jack - thanks for providing the video link, although I only managed to watch a few seconds before my revoltometer kicked in. Was it just me, or did they use a "James Earl Jones" filter on Obama's voice, just to make it sound slightly more masculine?

Julie- They may very well have electronically deepened Obama's voice. Otherwise they risked him seeming less masculine than Julianne Moore.

Yep. Its a win-win for the post-modern feminists of today.
