P.J. O’Rourke reports from a “Housing Now!” rally:

I saw a journalist friend of mine in the Mall, and he and I pursued this line of inquiry as assiduously as our happy private lives allow. Practically every female at the march was a bowser. “We’re not being sexist here,” my friend insisted. “It’s not that looks matter per se. It’s just that beautiful women are always on the cutting edge of social trends. Remember how many beautiful women were in the anti-war movement twenty years ago? In the yoga classes fifteen years ago? At the discos ten years ago? On Wall Street five years ago? Where the beautiful women are is where the country is headed,” said my friend.

O’Rourke’s friend is as correct now as he was in 1992.

    1. The Ukrainian precedent is also encouraging. Click the link for documentary evidence:

      Which anti-war movement was this?  He certainly isn’t remembering the same anti-war movement I am.

    1. What is not incouraging is when you figure the average intelligence of a model.  peta has always had supermodels and “in” Hollywood stars fronting for them.  Remember “We would rather go naked than wear a fur”?  Or the women that would wear cabbages for clothes?

      Where are the pretty young women for pebble reactors in the US?  Or drilling in Alaska?  Things that could actually help us?

      Granted, I still like looking at those nekkid and lettuce bikini protests.  They are much easier on the eyes than rotten-toothed dirty bearded men dousing things with fuel and burning them.  Does this theory hold true for radical islam?  If so, wahabbism is doomed.

    1. There must be some sort of big social trend going down in my pants, by that logic.

    1. But please keep the cutting edges well away from that social trend, thankyouverymuch.

    1. We got ‘em in Oz and they got ‘em in Merriku. And there’s even a hot Oz-Merrikun on the right side.

  1. The evidence just keeps popping out. She had plenty of space on her arse for “George W. Bush smells worse than this, the big jobbie</i> as well, an oportunity missed.
