Kevin Williamson of National Review got all Darwinian about how Mitt Romney is such a dominant beast — a living expression of primal urges — and the funniest thing about it is the reaction (via Memeorandum) from a certain blogger we call Jazzy McPonytail:
You’ll never see a clearer depiction of right wing values, and it’s not a pretty picture.
Lighten up, Charles. Your own beta-male failures are not Mitt’s fault.
UPDATE: Permit me to point out the extreme irony of Charles Johnson’s whiny I’m-so-offended objections to Williamson’s article.
Who does CJ hate worse than anything? Creationists who are skeptical toward evolutionary theory. Yet here is Williamson, taking Darwinism to what is arguably its logical conclusion — the science is settled! — and Johnson rejects it because Williamson’s conclusion is “right wing.”
However, let some fundamentalist invoke the authority of the Creator — as in, “all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator,” etc. — and Johnson would have a conniption about that, too.
Lacking self-awareness, CJ is blind to his own contradictory biases and yet adamantly certain of his own intellectual supremacy.
