So I Tied An Onion to My Belt (Which Was the Style at the Time)

abraham-simpsonThe jumping-off point for Burt Pretlusky’s latest ambling rant is a Huffington Post piece calling him “cranky.”  I’ve never really gotten “cranky” from Pretlusky.  He’s more like your half-crazy uncle who did too many drugs in the 70s.  He was cool and funny until one day, a couple years ago, he wandered into a Barnes and Noble, looking for some coffee.  But since he was too confused by the Tall/Grande/Venti naming scheme, he walked about the store in a daze and happened to pick up a Glenn Beck book.  And now he won’t stop haranguing everybody with random right-wing conspiracy minutiae at holiday dinners.

You can’t get too upset, though.  It’s not his fault, really.  If he’d happened to pick up a Keith Olbermann book that fateful day, things would’ve turned out the same way, just with the politics reversed.  That’s just the way he is.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve come across a few surveys that got my attention.  In one, it was found that 41% of women in their 20s would marry for money, 74% of women in their 30s and over 60% of women who were 40 or older.  The man’s looks were of little or no concern, but he had to have at least $2.5 million.  It wasn’t that love didn’t matter to the ladies, but it was love of money.

That reminded me that several years ago, there was a survey conducted by a woman’s magazine — perhaps the Ladies Home Journal — that asked mothers of all ages if, having it all to do over again, they would still opt to have children.  By a whopping margin, they said not a chance.

The ladies, it seems, aren’t the great romantic nest-builders their publicists would have us think they are.  I choose, however, to believe that most of these money-grubbing,  embittered females are liberals.  After all, in spite of all the whining about sexual harassment in the work place, you never heard liberal women complaining about serial womanizers such as Sen. Robert Packwood, Sen. Ted Kennedy or President Bill Clinton.  In fact, they delighted in nailing the hides of such female whistle-blowers as Linda Tripp, Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick and Gennifer Flowers to the barn door.  And when it came to Sarah Palin, they happily provided the lynch rope.

Thanks for not linking to the first survey you cite!  I’m sure it employs totally sound methodology!  And, man, who needs statistics when you have Burt Pretlusky’s hazy memory of a God-knows-how-old, completely-scientific Ladies Home Journal study.

I remember a study I read a while back, it was probably in National Review or Weekly Standard or something, that stated that 99% of old farts who bitch about the way young women live their lives never, ever get laid again.  I also choose to believe that the outstanding 1% were all men bedded by Sarah Palin.
