The thing that makes “boy bands” so creepy is that they’re all contrived — nothing about them is true or natural, they lack both the soul and the swagger of Motown and they’re assembled like those little girls for a beauty pageant, as if Milli Vanilli had quintuplets. I’d prefer a Daltrey vs Townsend fist-fight to the grab-ass and snuggles of One Dimension.
These travesties only really appeal to young girls and some homosexual men. Even groups like the Spice Girls or the Pussy Cat Dolls don’t work for most. Why?
When men see a host of women gyrating and scantily clad on stage, subliminally they expect there to be a pole and they either walk away or reach for a wad of singles. The songs really don’t matter. Not to say that teenage boys wouldn’t have their poster on the wall but the thing about the Spice Girls is, though many men may have desired Pony-tail Spice and even had her body grace their dorm room – they didn’t want her voice on their iPod.
Should we engage in Syria?
So the demonic bastards in Syria who are normally occupied with how to kill Westerners and how to drive Israel into the sea are now focused on killing Al Qaeda … and our President wants to interfere. Imagine that?
Col. Ralph Peters called the President’s plan “senseless” and “without logic,” – “our enemies are killing our enemies … they’re doing our job!”
Well, we can’t let that happen.
So, let’s do the math on this one. The President, who rose to glory as the Senator who mocked Bush’s War, unilateral action and weapons of mass destruction, has now alerted our congress (and our enemies) that he will act unilaterally, despite the world and the United Nations disapproval and because of WMD’s.
Makes sense to me – that is, if the President is a Manchurian Executive who is operating as a closeted Sunni Muslim that happens to be a Gramsci/Alinsky Marxist. What could be more predictable than to act against American interest?
Jonah Goldberg had it just right when he tweeted, “Perhaps all of the finger wagging over Miley Cyrus getting more attention than Syria could be solved by dropping her on Damascus?” – @JonahNRO
I’m for that!
