Erick Erickson’s Casual Misogyny Raises Some Important Queries!

  swoon!


Oh hey girlfriends! Erick Erickson is so confused because how do all the gals, all of them, not love Obama’s health care plan when Obama himself is such a dreamboat? It’s weird right? Ha ha, it’s like, unless we’re like a bunch of lesbians we should be on board with this thing automatically. It’s called biology, and it’s a science—or so the boys tell us! [RedState]

    Spoken with the jealous rage of a man who spent every junior and senior high dance standing along the wall wondering why the girls all laugh when he asks them to dance.

  2. Gorillionaire

    I don’t want to click over to Red Skank ever again so someone just tell me has “Truesoldier” or “Throbbing Eagle Cock in my Red White and Blue Speedos” weighed in on this insightful observation yet?

    Juli, do you get hazardous pay to go to redstate.com? I think a kitten falls down the sewer every time someone goes there.

    Because I’m not sure I want to know, does Eric get paid for this? Because I, too, can mangle the English language, but nobody shells out money for it.

    Results from this same poll found that 100% of women surveyed disapproved on Erick Erickson’s nerdish wardrobe, 93% referred to him as a festering lowlife pustule, and 150% reported dissatifaction with his stinky feet and predilection for prepubescent Malaysian males.

    Erik The Red sites a study from the Independent Womens Forum in his “article”. Clicking through to their site you can read that they’re a Conservative Womens organization who loves Phyllis Schlafley and hates CapAndTrade and all the other NeoCon talking points. So…..I cry suspect data…Erik…

    Fifty-four percent would not personally trade in their coverage for a public plan; 38% would.

    Fifty-four percent wouldn’t share their chocolate lava cake with their dinner dates….

    HELLO, WONKETTE! IT’S BARELY 8:30AM HERE IN CALIFORNIA AND YOU’VE ALREADY SENT US OVER TO REDSTATE.

    Well this just shows that a good pollster can do damn near anything with statistics. If you go to the linked page (skipping the whole vile RedState page hit) here, there’s an analysis PDF document. On page 15 it says the following:

    However, when were asked about their own healthcare, women expressed that much more certitude. A full three‐quarters either wanted their own healthcare to be “left as‐is” (35%) or “be modified, but mostly left as‐is” (40%). Less than one‐in‐five (19%) wanted it to “undergo dramatic overhaul.”

    Of course, that also means that a majority (59%) want at least some change in their own healthcare plan. Their feeling about America’s healthcare system in general is stronger — 83% want either small or drastic changes, with only 11% wanting no change.

    So yeah — women dislike healthcare reform — except for the 83% who want it.

    Women aren’t liking it, they are LOVING it! Every once in a while EE unconsciously lets the truth slip out.

  11. JMP

    option[re=446186]SayItWithWookies[/re]: The poll also doesn’t say that most women are against the public option at all; the results show that the majority would rather keep the insurance they have than switch to the public option personally. Since the proposed reforms wouldn’t change the coverage of anyone who doesn’t want to, that says nothing about whether the respondents support it or not.

  12. petehammer

    Would they like it more if there was better abortion coverage? Hmmm! You raise a good point, EE Cummings!

  13. Lascauxcaveman

    So just because I’m a lesbian, I’m supposed to against health insurance reform? That is so not fair.

    Because I am a lesbian, trapped in a man’s body.

  14. Gopherit

    [re=446186]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Right……except, as everyone should understand by now…..THIS HEALTHCARE PLAN DOESN’T AFFECT ANYONE’S CURRENT HEALTHCARE! GAH!! These pollsters need to die of gangrenous hemorrhoids.

  15. Crank Tango

    How many of them are into the price doubling again in ten years?

    And how many women anywhere, besides Narnia, find that shitburger erickkson sexy?

    [re=446165]Terry[/re]: He was too busy organizing hitler youth/young republican torchlight parades to attend his highschool dances.

  17. RoscoePColtraine

    [re=446186]SayItWithWookies[/re]: The point of the debate is what to do about the millions of people with no health coverage, while reassuring everyone else that they can keep what they have. Erick wants to talk about poll numbers that show MOST people with coverage want it to be left as-is. Goddamit, there’s not enough coffee in the world to keep me sitting here long enough to figure out what the fuck he’s trying to prove.

    What I find really interesting is how buddy’s headline there is ostensibly about healthcare, but is really on a more fundamental level about white male feelings of inadequacy (lock up the women folk!), which by my calculations drives about 82% of the popular support for the right wing movement in US America (see: Limbaugh, Rush). As an inadequate white male I’d just like to say I accept the fact that Barry keeps a harem of blonde ladies to slake his demonic lust in the basement of his pleasure palace.

    Family Guy’s Peter Griffin said it best. “Two symbols of the Republican party: an elephant and a fat white guy who’s afraid of change.”

    Survey: http://www.iwf.org/files/c7df9fe1e1e5ae37013dc836f1856e4a.pdf
    Below is the only question in the survey about the public option. See a problem with the question?

    32. As you might know, some lawmakers in Washington are giving serious consideration to a
    government-run healthcare program. This is sometimes referred to as the “public
    option.” According to supporters of the bill, enrollment will be optional. However, some
    have suggested that if the option is available, employers will stop offering coverage to
    their employees, meaning Americans will have no choice but to enroll in the (SPLIT
    SAMPLE: public plan/government-run plan). Which of the following comes closest to
    your own thinking?
    “Public Plan”/”Government-Run Plan”
    N=400/N=400
    38% 39% WOULD CONSIDER TRADING IN COVERAGE (NET)
    6% 10% I WOULD DEFINITELY CONSIDER TRADING IN MY CURRENT COVERAGE FOR GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE
    COVERAGE, NO MATTER WHAT THE TERMS WERE
    32% 29% I WOULD PROBABLY CONSIDER TRADING IN MY CURRENT COVERAGE FOR GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE
    COVERAGE, BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE TERMS WERE
    *****
    54% 57% WOULD NOT CONSIDER TRADING IN COVERAGE (NET)
    23% 28% I WOULD PROBABLY NOT CONSIDER TRADING IN MY CURRENT COVERAGE FOR GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE COVERAGE, BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE TERMS WERE
    31% 29% I WOULD DEFINITELY NOT CONSIDER TRADING IN MY CURRENT COVERAGE FOR GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE COVERAGE, NO MATTER WHAT THE TERMS WERE

    3% 2% IT DEPENDS/NEED MORE INFORMATION (VOLUNTEERED)
    4% 2% DO NOT KNOW (VOLUNTEERED)
    1% – REFUSED (VOLUNTEERED)

    [re=446310]S.Luggo[/re]: Polls can be slanted!
    ***Clutch pearls and gasp***

    It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “depends on what poll you look at…”
    Don’t we all have our favorite polls, anyway? I usually like that one by the A-rab, what’s his name, Gallup, Zogby, Sultan of Swing? Anytime, that is, his results agree with what I already knew.

  22. lawrenceofthedesert

    The point of the legislation is to expand coverage to women who can’t afford current plans. The poll obviously included many women who have health insurance — why would they care? Perhaps the next GOP poll can ask country club members what they think of welfare — it will be every bit as meaningful. (Is it a coincidence that a man named Erik Erikson coined the phrase “identity crisis”?)

  23. Guppy06

    [re=446310]S.Luggo[/re]: Yay, a straw man in a survey question!

    “some have suggested that if the option is available, employers will stop offering coverage to
    their employees, meaning Americans will have no choice but to enroll in the [Marxist Kenyan insurance].”

    Because it would be totes illegal for a private insurer to offer individual plans, and no employers today ever neglect to offer private group coverage to employees, in spite of the (theoretical) availability of individual private plans!

    My last crap job advertised “benefits” like “health insurance.” Every time I asked them about it, I was told they’d “get back to me,” or they were “working on it.” It didn’t take the presence of Obamacare to jerk my chain around for over a year!

    At the heart of white male racism is dick envy. They all are afraid that they will never measure up to the black man.

  25. Jim89048

    My insurance covers abortions, but they won’t cover the sex change that would make my dream of covered abortions possible.

    Bastards.

  26. nerd1951

    [re=446359]Dreamer[/re]: No the heart of white male racism is “cool envy” every one of us aspire to be as cool as the black dudes but we know in our hearts that even Steve Urkel has us beat.

  27. TVarmy

    He’s just bitter that it didn’t work the other way around when Sarah Palin ran as sexiest VP ever.

  28. Accordion-o-rama

    [re=446310]S.Luggo[/re]: The question is obviously biased – no mention of the birth certificate issue.

  29. Mad Brahms

    [re=446166]AxmxZ[/re]: Erick Erickson’s columns *are* the taste of ass. [re=446310]

    S.Luggo[/re]: Horrible, but not unexpected from the p[arty who actual sent out surveys with things like “Some have suggested that the democrats want to collect information on political party affiliation in the census, which could be used to determine government benefits later”, an even more egregious use of the “someone said” tactic

    Sexiest President Ever? I believe Kennedy might still hold that title. Although personally, I would go for Teddy Roosevelt. What can I say? I love mustache rides.
