Wait… aren’t the men on the right supposed to be the manly men?
Yeah, yeah, I get that Republican men are stereotypically big on guns, Chuck Norris, and being able to put up posters of Playboy centerfolds at the office without having to worry about that it might hurt the feminazis’ feelings and all. And because of this, I’ve been always been willing to concede to them the Uber-Testosterone Award at the Two-Party Bragging Rights Sweepstakes.
After seeing this, however, I am starting to wonder if all that other macho stuff isn’t an attempt to over-compensate some… er… um… well, let’s just say “shortcomings”:
According to the National Journal, Republican men skew toward Light Beer, mass-market pilsners, and whatever the hell kind of Madison Avenued, watered down, p**s-flavored monstrosity “Michelobe Ultra” might be. High Turnout Dems, on the other hand, lean toward microbrews, imports and pints of puts-hair-on-your-chest stouts like Guinness.
If I were still an undecided voter, this would definitely tip the scales toward the stealth-Muslim Kenyan.
