The NYTimes might as well call Hillary a demirep:

“Many factors played into the timing of Mrs. Clinton’s announcement. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, whom Mrs. Clinton’s advisers are watching closely as a potential opponent, staked a claim on Monday as his announcement date. Mrs. Clinton’s announcement on Sunday will certainly draw attention from Mr. Rubio’s entry into the race and could well eclipse it.”

“And while the move could invite criticism as unsportsmanlike, her campaign is betting that Democrats will applaud the show of force against a Republican. (Others involved insisted the date was selected before Mr. Rubio scheduled his event, but said that the juxtaposition was an added bonus.)”

You know, with half of Y’all Qaeda running in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, would there be an announcement date in which a real lady could politely defer to a man?

(On the bright side of course, this is yet another rake that Marco Rubio gets to step on.)

The Afternoon Quote

“Well, I hate to sound like the reporterette [Savannah Guthrie] that was giving him a hard time on television yesterday morning, but [Rand Paul] is going to have to explain a lot of things.”

–Y’all Qaeda’s own Tom Tancredo, former Rep. from Colorado.

One Lump of Stupid or Two, Sen. Paul?

Get the Popcorn!

Deer Eating Popcorn

You may recall that yesterday Rand Paul Schrödinger’s Candidate announced his 2016 Goat Rodeo run, and today he’s (again) mansplaining to the wimminfolk how to do their jobs:

“Why don’t you let me explain instead of talking over me,” replied Paul, before repeatedly accusing Guthrie of “editorializing.”

Then he gave her some free journalism advice: “Before we go through a litany of things you say I’ve changed on, why don’t you ask me a question, ‘Have I changed my opinion?’ That would be better way to approach an interview.” [Salon]

You might also recall that Sen. Aqua Buddha did something similar with CNBC’s Kelly Evans, when he sushed her and ordered her to stop talking while he was speaking. He’s a one-man front on the War on Women.

Some Fries With Your Stupid?

Did you know that free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck was also part of the achingly glamourous world du fashion? (Altogether now, ME NEITHER!)

Well ladies, rejoice, as Glenn manages to market his clothes to you in the most, well, Beckian way:

1791 [Beck’s clothing line] is proud to announce our new line of women’s Denim. We begin with denim jacket and jeans.

They were designed for and tested on all the girls in my life. It has taken us almost two years to get the design just right.

Yes, he tested them on all the girls in his life.

I am proud that finally I can rest knowing any dad who feels the way I do about the most beautiful girl ever born, my daughter, will be able to feel that way when she slips into her favorite jeans, blouse and jacket.

That’s starting get a little creepy, imagining you daughter dressing in the morning, let alone that she is the most beautiful girl ever born.

My wife who is a little more like the current runway models and my daughter who is more classic both can wear and love their new 1791s.

So Glenn, why not just hold up a scorecard to let the little lady know what you think?

I kind of think it is one of those fundamental God given rights. To feel pretty.

Because you are.

Sweet Jeebus, I want to take a shower after that.

As we grow so will our selection and sizes because it is time we celebrate real diversity. After all, God made us different colors, shapes and sizes.

Stop it. Just stop it.

Please check out the beginning of our new line of women’s clothing at 1791.com and see what the power of a dads love for his daughter can build.

I’m calling child protective services, and I hope they remember to look in the basement. What are the sheep saying Clarice?

Hey, Boston Herald! ‘No’ Means No

Spanking just liked dear old dad

DEMOCRATS WOULD be making a big mistake if they let Hillary Clinton coast to the presidential nomination without real opposition, and, as a national leader, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren can make sure that doesn’t happen. While Warren has repeatedly vowed that she won’t run for president herself, she ought to reconsider. And if Warren sticks to her refusal, she should make it her responsibility to help recruit candidates to provide voters with a vigorous debate on her signature cause, reducing income inequality, over the next year.

You know, boys, when a woman says “No,” it means no.

On Lump of Stupid or Two, Sen. Paul?

Rand-in-Box-2

Schrödinger’s Candidate, Rand Paul is renowned far and wide for his unique ability to use social media to troll his foes (and even has hired staff to do it), so it is rare that he steps out of the box and onto a rake:

Pinterest deleted Rand Paul’s sexist and unfunny Hillary Clinton ‘parody’

On Saturday, presidential hopeful/bona fide troll Rand Paul made a fake Pinterest page for Hillary Clinton. And shortly thereafter, Pinterest deleted the page — because making a fake Pinterest for a female politician is not only sexist, unfunny and painfully lame, but also explicitly violates Pinterest’s Terms of Service.

…The page, before Pinterest took it down, was presumably meant to “burn” Clinton, as my colleague Hunter Schwarz wrote Saturday. It included a “Power Couple” board with pictures of the Clintons. An “Inspirational Quotes” page, with text images of things Clinton has said. And, apropos of nothing, a “White House Remodel” page, complete with pictures of the furniture Clinton would buy to make the Oval Office “more chic.”

…But it’s impossible not to read into Paul’s choice of Pinterest for this particular stunt, particularly given that his past gags have gone down on Twitter only. Pinterest’s user base is overwhelmingly female — in fact, with default boards like “For the Home” and “My Style,” Pinterest is pretty explicitly branded that way.

On top of that, while most of the boards on the Clinton parody account targeted Clinton’s record — which is certainly fair game — the “White House Remodel” board has no apparent connection to Clinton, as a person or a politician. In fact, it’s unclear what aspects of her record Paul is “parodying” there — beside the fact that (heyo!) Clinton is a lady. It even came complete with stereotypical photo captions, falsely attributed to Clinton and crimped straight from suburban-mom speak: “LOVE this,” “lol,” hearts, smileys.

Good work, bro.

Tucker Carlson: Feminist

Tucker wants us to know that he found nothing appealing in Fifty Shades of Grey, and then for good measure adds, “If adult women find this appealing — I don’t get it, and you clearly find that embarrassing, but can we say that they shouldn’t find it appealing?”

I’m glad Hebephrenic TeeVee Dinner heir and vanity press owner Tucker Carlson could clear that up for the skirts.
