Republicans manage more

February 3rd, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

The Daily Beast reports:

Match.com gave The Daily Beast an exclusive first look at the results of its second annual Singles in America survey—a dive into the values, attitudes, and sexual patterns of 6,000 American singles. …

So what does it reveal? A few of the most interesting findings:

Republican Lead the Polls—In Orgasm

Yep, you heard that right. Republicans—and conservative Republicans, for that matter—reported the highest frequency of orgasm of all of the survey respondents, despite having the least amount of . More than half of those who identified as conservative Republicans said they reached climax almost every time they had , compared with just 40 percent of liberal Democrats. Sure, these answers are self-reported, but the survey was conducted anonymously online. What reason do they have to lie?

There must be a research grant somewhere someone can apply for, to see if these findings are replicated in New Zealand.

    It’s probably because Democrats have become so used to fucking over Republicans that the thrill is gone.

    Gee, I wonder if it has to do with the number of sexual partners? There’s a saying that goes something like “stay with one partner and you’ll have sex a hundred different ways. Have a hundred different partners and you’ll have sex the same way a hundred times.”

    It must be ‘find a study that suits’ day. Someone posted a link to this at TS.

    Right-wingers are less intelligent than left wingers, says study

    Right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers, and people with low childhood intelligence tend to grow up to have racist and anti-gay views, says a controversial new study.

    Conservative politics work almost as a ‘gateway’ into prejudice against others, say the Canadian academics.

    The paper analysed large UK studies which compared childhood intelligence with political views in adulthood across more than 15,000 people.

    The authors claim that people with low intelligence gravitate towards right-wing views because they make them feel safe.

    Anyone feeling safe here?

    Pete George,

    and I am sure the lefties have jumped on that sort of hocus science, but Powerlineblog at least as a response to when it came through on Yahoo news…

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/01/yahoo-news-casually-smears-conservatives.php

    Interesting point near the end:

    “Yet we have reliable social science data here in the U.S. indicating that political conservatives are better educated than liberals, make more money than liberals, and are less likely to express racial hostility than liberals.”

    Well, presumably most Conservative and Liberal men reach orgasm, so the women appear to be the unsatisfied sector.

    Fact is, the only time Republican women orgasm is when they’re by themselves, because Republican men are such lousy lovers. Two minutes in the missionary position is the average I’ve heard from a very reliable source.

    Liberal women on the other hand are far more likely to reach orgasm with their female or male partner, because liberals actually consider the needs and desires of people other than themselves.

    I liked Ryan’s comment
    “It’s all those torrid affairs in public toilets. ZING!” — I presume he means the police catch them before they climax.

    I think we all know the real reason though. Once a conservative reaches orgasm he stops fucking the liberal.

    Somewhat related:

    Newt Gingrich’s win in the South Carolina primary looks like it may not be an outlier; Gingrich’s poll numbers are rising rapidly in Florida, and he has a good chance of beating Romney there as well. Gingrich is doing well in no small part because he has so much support amongst evangelical Christians; so much so that many evangelical leaders refused to go along with an attempt to unify the Christian right behind Santorum.

    In South Carolina, evangelical Christians voted for Gingrich 2-to-1 over boring family man Mitt Romney. For anyone who takes seriously the notion that evangelical Christians actually care about things like family and fidelity, this support for Gingrich is baffling, since he has a history of serial adultery that he barely bothers to disavow. But a closer examination of the situation makes clear what’s going on: for the Republican base, “family values” don’t actually matter, but are just a gloss painted over what really motivates them: reactionary rage. They love Gingrich because he’s a flaming ball of rage they can wield against everyone they hate.

    The sexual double standard is the most obvious way the us vs. them mentality works. There’s nothing the modern American conservative loves more than to decry our country’s supposedly declining sexual morals. Once the Republicans swept state legislatures and the House of Representatives, punishing sexual freedom became their number one priority, which manifested in nearly 1,000 bills restricting reproductive rights in state legislatures and a bill attacking private insurance funding of abortion in the House. Eventually, House Republicans threatened to shut down the federal government in order to defund family planning clinics, basically because they’re in the business of providing contraception and STD prevention and treatment. All this while the base continues to push abstinence-only and reject gay marriage on the grounds that it’s not “traditional.” But when it comes to a serial adulterer like Gingrich, he gets a pass. After all, he’s one of theirs, and if you’re in the tribe, you get a lot more leeway.

    Nowhere is this more obvious than in the reaction to Marianne Gingrich sticking her head out, as she periodically does, to remind the world of what a terrible man her ex-husband is. This time she added the juicy detail that Newt basically demanded that he get to have both his wife and his mistress at the same time. It was a reminder that while this flagrant cheating was going on, Gingrich was repeatedly moralizing in public over President Clinton’s adultery. To this day, the GOP base still regards Clinton as some kind of perverted sex maniac. But Gingrich? Well, during the South Carolina debate when Marianne’s interview with ABC was brought up, the audience loudly booed the mere mention of her name. For the Republican base, Gingrich not only gets to cheat, he also gets to flaunt it in his wife’s face; but a Democrat like Clinton’s more secretive and brief affairs are unforgivable.

    Gingrich doesn’t live by the strict sexual rules laid out by conservatives, because those rules are meant for other people. Sex is a weapon being used against all those classes of Americans they don’t like: non-white people, gays, non-Christians, liberals, Democrats, people who have to work for a living, poor people, Democratic politicians.

    With rising levels of pious posing amongst Republicans, there has been some half-hearted attempts to pretend that they hold everyone to the same standards, which helped created the spectacle of Gov. Mark Sanford’s resignation. Gingrich represents a tossing-away of that feigned concern for fairness and a return to what conservatives really love best, a pedal-to-the-metal defense of straight white male privilege, especially that of wealthy white men. He’s the living id of the Republican Party: a spoiled brat who takes what he wants without apology, and then dresses down perceived inferiors for their supposed lack of morals and work ethic. You could easily imagine him drifting out of Tiffany’s, having bought wife number three fancy baubles with money generated from one of his direct mail schemes only to pause to lecture a homeless vet on how he deserved his fate because he didn’t sacrifice enough.

    In the Republican worldview, sex is a luxury item to be reserved for the privileged, and everyone else who indulges deserves whatever horrible fate befalls them. In the world imagined by Gingrich and his fan base, rich people get to say they’re sorry and run for public office if they have sex out of wedlock; poor people should see their health decline because they have an STD but can’t afford to see a doctor to treat it. The wealthy can afford contraception and have all the sex they want, but if Republicans succeed in cutting off family planning subsidies, poor people will go without. If abortion is banned, wealthy women will be able to travel to get abortions or depend on discreet doctors, but the poor will simply be forced to have babies.

    Of course, Republicans know better than anyone that simply giving into their worst instincts and promoting the career of someone like Newt Gingrich tends to turn off the moderates and swing voters they need to win elections. But it seems this year they don’t really care. Conservatives seem sick and tired of paying lip service to equality and family values, and instead are just enjoying the ride of cheering for the screw-you-I-got-mine guy. Will they wise up before it’s too late and Gingrich has the nomination? At this point, it’s hard to say.

    If this continues for long enough the poor population will explode and the ‘Republican’ population will wither.

    …unless enough of the poor rise enough to fill the void left by the dying out rich.
