This Vogue cover treatment is putting lipstick on a pig.

It's noticeable to those who have eyes that the most beautiful woman on the political scene in the last decade wasn't featured in any magazine because she's married to orange man. If she were married to dead-brain Joe, she would have been the new/improved Jackie.

I just got a renewal offer in the mail for Vogue for $10 a year. It is not worth 10 cents a year. After the George Floyd and BLM stuff happened, all the fashion magazines became exclusively minority in their articles, models, advertising. So we long-time subscribers all cancelled. By inserting politics into what had been enjoyable fashion, travel, and even new book reviews, they destroyed their product. Very very sad. And now I read that KJP has broken up with her significant other.

So we must add "single parent" to her list of firsts and read about her in a glowing hagiography in Harper's no doubt.

Who knew a fawning interview in Vogue could actually a form of soft core porn? WOW getting right to the heart of the matter, no fooling you. BRAVO

I'm not asking for an apology. I am only reflecting that it seemed over over the top.

I read and enjoy a lot of your writing. This is the first time that I'm bopping along and SCREECH!!! I'm not usually squeamish. I think the snotty way KJP refuses to answer questions is really annoying. So I'm not trying to give you a hard time as much as make sure I get what is going on. I guess I also want to avoid giving the MSM real actions they can use as ammo against us. And I guess I am also a fan of women's anatomy!!

I enjoy women's anatomy as well. So we're to peas in a pod over here.

She was handpicked explicitly to distract people from what's really going on. As long as people think this is a problem, or issue, they'll never look at the real problems going on in the real world. The US government is always gearing up for more war including poisoning, or infecting as many people as possible while working those who still can work to death for slave's wages preferably just as soon as they've lost anything and everything of any real value.

I was refering to:

"But her total incompetence, of course, didn't stop Vogue from going full-service on her taint, reaching that tongue deep into the recesses of her moist anus like only a lover can while tenderly massaging her brave and stunning clitoris in circular fashion."

I dislike KJP -- a lot -- but I feel using a woman's anatomy against her, as if there is something disgusting about it, is a low blow. And hypocritical since most guys would happily wrap ourselves in said anatomy.

There are plenty of pertinent attacks one could use against her. A generic attack like this seems an atttack against all women. I don't know about you, but I worship some women and reading this filth makes me feel dirty and disloyal.

Let's stipulate for the sake of argument that that paragraph is denigrating to KJP and not, in fact, an apt metaphor for what Vogue did.

I don't see why it should follow that it's therefore denigrating to all women.

People earn my respect or they don't. Although I have a lot for many women, I have none for KJP, and so I won't apologize for writing that paragraph about her.

Ben, you don't walk that softly but I never caught this side of you before.

Maybe you can elaborate on your point about how I'm "treating women" in the context of this article because I'm not sure I know what your complaint is.

Ben, it isn't cool or pertinent to treat a women in such an overblown sexual way. What does it have to do with anything? We don't have to live down to the crap the MSM prints about us.

Who said KJP is a woman? It looks like a Swamp creature to me.
