I must have really pissed off my friend Ginger when I dissed both her car and Ronald Reagan in the same week. If she wasn’t hell bent on retribution, why else would she send me a “shared item” featuring yet another painful, pitiful post by Egalia from TGW? See, I took TGW off my reader to spare myself the misery of watching an old friend experience a complete meltdown.
Actually, I don’t really disagree with her on the substance of her post; that the use of beautiful women to hawk merchandise is exploitive and potentially harmful to women. That said, the post did include a leap of logic of Hobbsian proportions, “used cars, used women, get it?”
Whether or not the ad was over the top is debatable. But heres the thing, even if it was blatantly, purposefully, and intentionally harmful, she muted herself with this throw away line:
“probably an Obamanian.”
That has TGW moving from shrill to tragically stupid. I’m beginning to wonder if Egalia did an apprenticeship with PETA. You do not serve your cause with cheap shots or offensive stunts. I’ll admit to enjoying watching irrelevance creep up on Ann Coulter, but I get no joy from this.
Your horse lost. Every Primary produces a winner and a loser. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and remember which team you play for, ok?
