Romney Accuses Obama Of Siding With Muslims | Right Winger Terry Jones Behind Anti-Muslim Movie

French Roast News

Andrea Hailey and David Williamson, August 25 at Shelter Island, NY’s Sylvester ManorA progressive woman seriously dating a guy associated with the investment world knows there’s a moment she dreads — that moment when the odds stacked against her reveal themselves to be true. She dating a Republican.

For Andrea Hailey, the moment came when her sweetheart David Williamson uttered familiar words … if Americans saved their money well and “took responsibility” for their finances, they might not need government intervention or a health-insurance mandate.

“It was like a movie where it happens in slow motion,” she said. “I was just like ‘Nooooooo … ’ I was horrified. But I was in love with him. We were pretty far into our relationship at this point.”

At this moment, the bride was leaving to run the Indiana congressional campaign of Dr. Woodrow A. Myers Jr., previously health commissioner of New York.

In writing about the new nuptials, the New York Times inspires hope for a resolution to America’s gridlocked Congress. Bottom line, though, it’s probably wishful thinking. Today’s Republicans and Democrats see few redeeming qualities in each other. Unlike Ms. Hailey and Mr. Williamson, they’re not in love.

In fact, our politicos are in perpetual divorce court, arguing for sole custody of the nation’s future. Can you imagine if there were children involved!!

A Muslim Sympathiser?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney accused President Obama of sympathizing with Muslim attackers who murdered America’s ambassador to Libya. As a stunned President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the attack and murder of the American Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other American diplomats by suspected Libyan religious extremists, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney went on the offensive, accusing President Obama of sympathizing with America’s enemies.

Part of the confusion came from a statement issued by the American embassy in Cairo — also the scene of protests yesterday over a low budget movie deemed highly offensive to Muslims. The statement, disavowed by Washington, condemned the movie rather than the protesters.

“I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi,” Romney said in the statement, which came before Stevens was confirmed as the fatality.

“It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks,” he added. via NY Daily News

Romney Attacks on 9/11

Cairo protesters scale US embassy wall on Sept. 11, 2012The Republican presidential candidate waged war on President Obama on September 11, a day the dueling duo set aside from partisan politics. Howard Kurtz writes for The Daily Beast that only one US consulate worker in Benghazi had been confirmed dead, when Romney took to his criticism of the president.

Writing for Foreign Policy, Marc Lynch argues that “it would be a tragic mistake to allow the images from Cairo and Benghazi to undermine American support for the changes in the Arab world.”

The Atlantic weighs in with a timeline of events concerning the production of the movie ‘The Real Life of Muhammad,’ an “amateurishly produced anti-Islam movie allegedly made with donations from 100 Jews.”

Not good. A cast of characters is emerging here, and AOC has written about them in depth. We return to 2010 and Terry Jones promising to burn another Quran:

Comparing Body Types of Playmates & Fashion Models | Andrew Sullivan Explains Santorum &Theocons

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Santorum Exposes The Real Republican Party by Andrew Sullivan for The Daily Beast

Sullivan calls Santorum’s vision for America what it really is: radical, not conservative.

It is a radical theocratically-based attack on modern liberal democracy; and on modernity as a whole. It would conserve nothing. It would require massive social upheaval, for example, to criminalize all abortion or keep all gay couples from having any publicly acknowledged rights or status. Then think of trying to get women back out of the workplace or contraception banned - natural, logical steps from this way of thinking. This massive change is radical, not conservative. It regards the evolution of American society these past few decades as literally the work of the Father of Lies, not the aggregate reflection of a changing society. It is at its essence a neo-Francoite version of America, an America that was not the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, but an America designed to destroy what the theocons regard as the catastrophe of the Enlightenment.

Barbie on the left is a creation of Jocelyne Grivaud, the creator of the site Barbie Ma Muse, which focuses on representations of women and their transformations as Barbie dolls. On the right is Man Ray’s image of Kiki, the Montparnasse singer, a woman with obvious curves.

Vogue Italia asks: The choice of the most famous doll of the last fifty years is important for the female stereotype it refers to – a skinny physique that obliterates curves and flattens shapeliness. Is Barbie really the women that we all now want to be?

Men and Female Shapes

Psychology Today asks: Do Men Find Very Skinny Women Attractive? We note that this very question now exhausts the vast majority of women. Let’s skip over the question and focus on some data. The author is focused on fashion runway models and Playboy Playmates.

Playmates haven’t gotten thinner over the years, unlike fashion models. The average Playmate is 5’6” tall and weighs 115 pounds with a BMI of 18.5. Ignoring today’s obesity epidemic, before 1980, almost two-thirds of American women in their late teens has a BMI below 20. The Playmates are more curvaceous with typical measurements of 35-23-34.

The average BMI for fashion models is 17.1, with half being under 17, compared to only 6% of Playmates. At 5’10”, they are taller than 99% of American women. Their busts are smaller by 3 inches than Playmates.
