Hard to believe, but in an earth shattering epiphany a female Conservative blogger has decided that maybe, just maybe her relationships might work out better if she and her potential soul mate had some basic personality traits and life goals in common, Dating Tips from Wingnut Bloggers
Have you dated liberals before? If so, any difference you can tell between liberal and conservative guys?
I tend not to date liberals, for a reason. Politics is so important to what I do and I follow it so much. I can’t respect a guy who’s liberal all that much because it makes me question his intelligence. So, that’s a big minus because I’m thinking how smart can this guy be if he thinks John Kerry is a great politician? (Laughs) If he thinks Barack Obama would be a great President, I think, gee, how bright could this guy be?
Intelligence is a quality that varies tremendously from person to person and only one among several admirable traits a person might have. We’re all possessed of some Rain Man-like qualities excelling at some things and not others. An adult with any powers of observation knows this. Why couldn’t she just be honest and say that if some guy lived in cave, ate raw squirrel meat and spent half the day scratching his ass, but voted Republican she’d qualify him as being smart. How many dates has she gone on and discussed the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and how it might relate to cultural studies and gender differences on test scores. Of course the Conservative ladies, despite the last forty years of history proving otherwise think that Cons are ever so much moral then everyone else. Cons have taken the word and meaning of values, chained it up, whipped it and dragged it behind a old Renault until its own parents couldn’t recognize it. Religion has always been a contentious issue, but in real life compared to Blogtopia or ConWorld there are quite a few religious inter-relationships that manage to work out fine.
The Liberal Journal gives the whole subject of Conservative women’s dating problems more thoughtful commentary then it probably deserves, Dating and Ideology
Tbogg supplies some snark per right-wing Romeo, one Ace, Dear Ace: My imaginary girlfriend is holding out on me…
I kind of get what they’re saying: I don’t dig on unsolicited bragging myself, from anyone. Ices me over, no matter what the situation.
On top of that, I think if anyone is really interested at all they’re going to start an intelligence-gathering mission to determine how happening you are.
The visual equivalent of reading a Republican blogger trying to sound hip is a guy in a polyester leisure suit with a perm. If they loved America or cared anything at all about American culture they’d just stop.
Being a sucker for straight up honesty – that would include being honest not just with other people, but yourself as well, Shakespeare’s Sister post was very thoughtful and funny in a sought of Tom Robbins funny sad kind of way, Howdy Kids! This is an ultra-important Question of the Day. HA!
There has been a pattern with me though. Most of my partners were polar opposites from me. While I am often funky and trapped in my Gothic princess period, at least with home décor, my partners were usually clean-cut, very fond of flannel, and had an air of normalcy cloaking their deviant hearts.
As for myself I’ve never checked anyone’s voter registration card before or after.
Information strategists can consider clandestinely recruiting or hiring prominent bloggers or other persons of prominence… to pass the U.S. message. In this way, the U.S. can overleap the entrenched inequalities and make use of preexisting intellectual and social capital. Sometimes numbers can be effective; hiring a block of bloggers to verbally attack a specific person or promote a specific message may be worth considering. On the other hand, such operations can have a blowback effect, as witnessed by the public reaction following revelations that the U.S. military had paid journalists to publish stories in the Iraqi press under their own names. People do not like to be deceived, and the price of being exposed is lost credibility and trust.
Leave it to a career bureaucrat with what seems to be a strong ideological bent to think they need to recruit bloggers to deliver a “U.S. message”. There is no shortage of pro U.S. bloggers. What they mean is a pro-Chimp-pro-Mess’opotamia message.
