R-Money, Alpha Male

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.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools . . .”

    Oh, dammit, I had to go and click into the swamp. I’m almost starting to feel sorry for the guy.

    CJ may well be living proof that masturbation eventually leads to blindness and insanity.

    I read CJ’s post; there wasn’t a word about being offended by the piece. He observed that it read like parody. And there isn’t anything Darwinian, scientific, or even merely empirical in the article, anyway.

    Charles Johnson was born a fool, raised a fool, lives as a fool and by all indications will die a fool.

  • Adjoran

    Actually, the damaging habit is repeatedly sniffing one’s own bicycle seat.

    If there were a drinking contest on that idiot’s whines, we’d never sober up.

  • Peter Getty the Earnest Lib

    Quite. You rightwingers are quite excitable and unscientific.

  • Charles Johnson

    Damn you RSM! I am offended you wingnuts even exist.

  • SDN

    I’ve never figured out how Leftards reconcile envy of those who are successful by Darwin’s Theory with belief in it….

  • Bill54

    And the OWs’ers are NOT left-wing? Ha!

  • Quartermaster

    Nah. We’re all centrists here. You moonbats are so far out that even McGovern would seem to be a right wing loon ball to you.

  • Mike Rogers

    Ah yes. Mitt R-Money – neat anagram, huh?
    Plagiarism, or great minds like to twist words the same way?

  • Charles the Magnificent

    Peter, you may continue to post. As for all the others, they are BANNED! Banned from all the interwebs! Banned, I say. Bwahahahahahaha!!!

  • Bob Belvedere

    But still just ‘almost’, I hope.

    Haven’t heard from you in a while – good to see you back.
