"Vote Like Your Lady Parts Depend On It... Because they kinda do."

Something that was on the Obama campaign website and, when widely noticed, taken down.

Imagine if the sexes were reversed: Vote like your manhood depends on it... because it kinda does.

How did they know about my lady parts? Did that damn freezer crap out again?

Tim said...

Obama's campaign can offend the entire world, and it won't cost him a single vote.

Some sock-puppet sends him a letter from purportedly 27 year old woman suffering from Downs' Syndrome who is "offended" by Romney's "47%" comment, and *some* voters wet their panties.

Double standards, much?

Bob Ellison said...

Tyrone, LOL.

The Crack Emcee said...

I think the translation here is:

"I'm a woman and I vote."

Does the statement's stupidity come through better when Obama says it?

Julie C said...

Why are my lady parts the concern of this campaign? Are all lady parts equal?

Keep your hands off my Republican lady parts!

They're more attachment points than parts.

@Tyrone,

Some guys from Wisconsin truly are known for their ladyparts collections

(Link SFW. Not pleasant to read, but SFW)

Are those the kinda ciccones you think Romney should grow?

Paul Zrimsek said...

Democrats have always depended on support from organized labia.

harrogate said...

Except for manhood, which you ask readers to "imagine"--is a weak parallel. It would be closer to liken it to "Vote like your man parts depend on it."

Of course, it's dumb to imagine either. Because unlike women, man don't have to deal with a political party trying to dictate to them, what to do with their parts. But you knew that. "Social liberal" that you are.

YoungHegelian said...

Because unlike women, man don't have to deal with a political party trying to dictate to them, what to do with their parts.

Because modern liberalism is just so okay with male sexuality, right?

That must be why liberalism came up with modern sexual harassment laws for corporations, with such fuzzy legal notions as "a hostile workplace".

What color is the sky on your world?

furious_a said...

Vote like your nationhood depends on it. I know I am.

Does the statement's stupidity come through better when Obama says it?

It's more authentic when Obama says it, dropping the 'g's from his participles.

Peter said...

Well, there does seem to be a political party that stands against the manhood to which I was raised. And it ain't the Republicans. Of course that same party is against the womanhood in chich my wife and daughter were raised.

chickelit said...

I didn't realize it was conservatives trying to ban circumcision.

But harrogate, being the only true conservative, knew that.

@harriwgate Maybe I've read too many DH Lawrence novels.

Tyrone, it's really not fair to win the thread on the first comment.

Except, of course, for how we've already industrially commoditized boy parts:

http://www.lonza.com/products-services/bio-research/primary-and-stem-cells/human-cells-and-media/fibroblasts-and-media/human-dermal-fibroblasts.aspx

For just a few examples found in under one minute of googling.

We're amputating perfectly normal, healthy, functional tissue -- it has to be like that, to be sold like this for research or manufacturing purposes -- from baby boys and then selling it on the open market.

You can't make this stuff up. It's beyond dystopian. It's the modern-day minor version of Moloch worship.

It's the sexual tissue of our own children, being sold on the open market.

We've already industrially commoditized man parts. We strap baby boys down and cut off their erogenous flesh and process it and resell it to researchers and manufacturers.

Shouting Thomas said...

People who oppose abortion are not "dictating" to women about anything.

I have ambivalent feelings about abortion.

But, I know that opponents of abortion believe that the unborn child, and the child's father, also have rights, and those rights must be balanced against a woman's right to abort a child.

Three people, and their rights, are involved in every abortion.

pm317 said...

Tim Kaine in VA is running an ad about defending lady parts from the vile republicans. That is every Democrat's campaign theme these days -- that is all they have. It is pretty pathetic.

cubanbob said...

If men voted with private parts alimony and child support laws would be a lot different.

Shouting Thomas said...

It's interesting that, in this abortion debate, the Dems refuse to even acknowledge that men and children have rights that deserve the same consideration as women's rights.

The Crack Emcee said...

Here - if "women" matter so much to you:

Jim Lehrer: Ask Mitt Romney if He Stands By Mormonism’s Views of Women

And I love these tidbits:

Given the church’s history of political activism, and Romney’s prominent role in the church, it seems bizarre that he’s yet to address the issue at all—a perverse instance of religious tolerance leaving questions about gender discrimination unasked and unexamined.

But "the church’s history of political activism" doesn't indicate they're playing an angle with Romney, even though the cultists were "reportedly using its religious authority to tell the faithful which side to take in a local zoning fight" and "That [black] curse was lifted by a new divine revelation in 1978, serendipitously received just as the political pressure on the church had become crushing."

Listen up, Suckers:

"I would like to know just how different his views are from those of the now-deceased Hinckley, whom Romney spoke with privately—reportedly about “whether a run would be good for him and the church”—before launching his first presidential bid in 2008."

Yeah, he asked about that - and many other things - but he won't ask church leadership about anything else,...promise. And then there's this:

Marion G. Romney—a first cousin of George who was a former member of the First Presidency of the Church, its highest authority—famously related the instructions he’d received from the Mormon prophet:

“Always keep your eye on the president of the church, and if he ever tells you to do anything, and it is wrong, and you do it, the Lord will bless you for it.”


Do "wrong" if your cult leader says so. Yep, that's got Christianity wriiten all over it, doesn't it?

And this got a laugh out of me:

At a temple endowment ceremony held before my wedding, I was given a new name that I was to tell no one but my spouse so that he could call me by it and pull me through a semi-sheer veil (a curtain really) in an act that supposedly represented my path to salvation. Yet my husband was expressly forbidden from telling me his new name.

So what was so funny? Well let's look at how the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's cult does it:

The Mantras are meaningless sounds. Meditators are kept in the dark about the actual meanings, and even some TM teachers are.

This shit is hilarious.

"To my knowledge, [Mitt] has never been asked about or publicly discussed the status of Mormon women."

Or anything else about Mormonism. It's "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma" that nobody wants to know shit about - until he's won. Then whatever happens - just "happens."

With the first presidential debate nearly here and the election just weeks away, it’s high time Lehrer—or really any journalist covering the campaign—asks Romney if he feels the same way."

Good luck with that.

Patriots one and all,...

Both are equally stupid. But at least Obama says it with some humor, which is far better than Althouse's preening and obnoxious righteousness.

bagoh20 said...

I can't find my lady parts. Could one of you girls send me a picture of yours, so I know what to look for?

Julie C said...

According to Steve Rattner, former Obama car czar, the reason Jennifer Granholm sounded so nutty at the DNC: 'must have had some medications or something in her system'.

You must keep your lady parts properly medicated!

Shit. More SQUIRREL again.

I am too unsophisticated and dumb for this conversation.

If and when "Off with your nuts - Yes or No!" appears on a ballot, I'll think about it.

Ffpppfttt. Ahaaaaa....

Three people, and their rights, are involved in every abortion.

And yet the right to life often doesn't take precedence over the right to convenience. Strange that.

In my world, that's more than zero.

Have you seen those new briefcases ? Rub them a few minutes and they become suitcases.

Don't let Viagra get near them, though. You could get trapped.

The Drill SGT said...

Let it be part of the GOP platform

Circumcision, only for men!

How's that for discrimination in parts?

As for Liberals, some want no circumcision for anybody, and others support the Islamic view, circumcision for everybody.

How bout those missing parts?

edutcher said...

I take it Ann's lady parts did not take kindly to being granted a vote separate from the entity known as Althouse.

PS President Lady Parts is getting sloppy. Apparently goofing off from debate prep, he stops at a pizza parlor and says, "It’s a drag. They’re making me do my homework.", and now this.

(they're making me do my homework? this guy is supposed to be a scholar? sure he is)

PPS Where's Hatman? I'm surprised e're not being harangued about his lady parts.

bagoh20 said...

At least they don't waste time telling them to vote with their brain.

mesquito said...

I always said only a pussy would vote for a Democrat.

Matthew Sablan said...

Edutcher: If he won't listen to his security briefings, I'm not surprised he doesn't care about his debate prep.

Reminds me of the mohel who saved the foreskins for his entire career. When he retired he wanted a souvenir so he took the foreskins to a luggage maker. "Make me something," he said.

When he returned a week later the luggage maker handed him a wallet. "A wallet?," said the mohel, "Fifty years' worth of foreskins and you make me a wallet?"

"Ah," said the luggage maker, "but when you rub it it turns into a suitcase."

Lets face it the president is surrounded by dipshits like himself. They don't really understand why people are offended by this ad, they really don't. They took it down because someone had to explain it to them and they want to snow the gullible one last time. Duh.

Pogo said...

Lady parts?

30% off on bulk orders from the The Vagina Catalogue.

If the labia move, is that what they mean by a vagina monologue?

Lem said...

Vote like your hot spot depend it on it.

Shouting Thomas said...

Women, in general, don't have the same sense of fair play as men.

They feel entitled. The school system and the business world have been telling them they're entitled for 50 years.

They feel like they are always entitled to more. Not much that can be done with that.

The liberal womans' openly stated obsessions with their genitalia is fascinating to watch, seeing as how it's men that are supposed to have the "phallus=identity=power" issues.

Ann, you said you were waiting for Romney to "show you something". Does this show you anything about Obama?

LilyBart said...


I just got an ad in the mail that said Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney want my insurance and employer to have a say in my birth control decisions.

But Barack "sides with women" not to let "politicians dictate your decision on birth control"

Oh, hello? The government take over of healthcare will keep politicians’ out of my healthcare decisions? Are they kidding?

Are these ad targeted at silly women like Ann Althouse and Inga who are easy prey for these emotional ads? Because this is nonsense.

Synova said...

"The liberal womans' openly stated obsessions with their genitalia is fascinating to watch, seeing as how it's men that are supposed to have the "phallus=identity=power" issues."

I think you've figured it out. It's nothing but old fashioned penis envy.

I'd like to see a cartoon that has a woman on it and one speech bubble says, "I want to be appreciated for my brain." and then on the other side and below is another speech bubble that says, "My vagina is voting for Obama."

Shanna said...

The government take over of healthcare will keep politicians’ out of my healthcare decisions?

Seriously! How does that help anything?

Birth control was already covered for most women and if it wasn't, you could always pay out of pocket or buy a condom (or ask you bf to buy one!) This was not a crisis.

Zachary Chandler said...

The fact is Obama is not good for any lady or man parts! Take a look at this YouTube parody to see what Obama has been up to the last four years.

As Professor Reynolds wrote: reverse it 'Vote like your 'man parts' depend on it because they kinda do'

Somehow that's considered sexist and oppressive.

America's Politico said...

Calling all O-B-A-M-A Fans on Althouse Blog:

Please do not go to Drudge. Okey-dokey?

Please do not listen to any-one. The POTUS is the most careful, caring, accepting man of all races, all religions, all genders.

He is simply the best. He is like Bond-the best and greatest.

Vote for him. DO NOT go to Drudge. Thanks heaven that NYT, NPR, etc. will not cover this video.

Cartoon idea: a voter drawing their hand away from the cast vote button, and there is a string of cooter mucus between their hand and the button. Callout thought bubble reads, "I hate voting after a Vaj Voter!"

I think that's the magic bullet that's gonna pull Romney's fat out of the fire!

kentuckyliz said...

Speaking of lady parts -- this is gross, you have been warned. Stop reading this now. OK, now that the disclaimer has been issued: I squeezed cheese out of my nipple...ewww! That breast had the breast cancer. Should I be worried? Had a mammogram recently. ????

Inga said...

WTF, Liz.

See your doc.

Dante said...

After looking at the Daily Caller, it seems like he already said "Vote as if your Race depends on it." So vote as if your pussy depends on it seems right in line.

I certainly hope Ann finds the race part of it as offensive as the audio of a video that was played too many times.

gmama3 said...

We have gone from the soccer moms to the Vagina Voters.

Wasn't the point of women's liberation for women to be seen as whole beings and not just the sum of their sex organs?

Bryan C said...

"Seriously! How does that help anything?"

Because real women know every doctor is a dirty capitalist monster who's just waiting for a chance to steal your labia and lock you into a chastity belt.Whereas faceless unelected government functionaries are obviously worthy of your unconditional trust.

The arrogance of the Obamites is amazing, but the awful thing is that they have the dipshit twiffle female vote that thinks with their hormones and cunts locked up, blacls that vote in skin color locked up, all the Obamaphone momma parasites vote locked up.

And all the liberals and progressive Jewish puppetmasters in the media...that will ballwash Obama day in and day out no matter what he says or does or fails to do. They are expiating their immense white guilt for basically nothing any white should feel guilty of. Even liberals and progressive Jews who had ancestors in the slavery business.

So the Obamites can get get away with it. NO lie is called out. No mockery of slowing the oceans rise, healing the planet, his Harvard lawyer mob trying to do energy tech startups.....no mockery of the Obamite's version of the US flag.

And No mockery of the single white sparkle cows that need a wise strong sweet-talking black pimp that will protect their lady parts from those awful white Christianists.
(We know how well the actual white whore-black pimp relationship usually works out)

1st Tyrone, LOL.

2nd Your premise lacks both insight and wisdom. Let me use the overused, overblown analogy: Out of the 2 statements “Vote German because they know what to do with the Jews” and “Vote Jew because they know what to do with the Germans”. Second slogan is less ‘creepy’ because let’s face it Germans took care of a lot of jewish people.


Women’s rights in the US were not equivalent to what happened with the Germans but to act like there isn’t sexism is simply ignorant. Let’s keep in mind that women weren’t allowed to vote in national elections until 1953. ( Local elections 1947’ish’). Let alone part of the work force.

3rd Shouting Thomas: Re: Women’s entitlement: “You must get laid like never”
Re: Your abortion views: No there is only 2 people involved with abortion. The woman and the man. And really the man’s opinion is to be taken into consideration.

It is the woman who has to carry it, who also take the risk of losing her own life. Has to deal with the social repercussions of the pregnancy. Because all you holy christians like to disown your daughters when they have that moment of weakness and give in to biological urges with the person they feel is the ‘one’ and the only tool that was given to them was just say ‘no’.

And to the people that state abortions are ‘a matter of convenience’. As a male who has had been with a woman that has had an an abortion there is nothing convenient about it. It is emotionally the same as a miscarriage.

"Because all you holy christians like to disown your daughters when they have that moment of weakness..."

Turning your back on your own flesh and blood during a time of crisis is anything but Christian.

"and the only tool that was given to them was to just say 'no'."

Are you talking about Catlicks? There was a reason for the Protestant Reformation. I would ask our resident cult expert Crack, but he might not be privy to the fine nuances.

reformed trucker said...

Gee, Ann... does it bother you that Zero just considers you as a pussy that votes? I seriously Hope[tm] that you're not going to double down.

Cedarford said...

You sort of wonder if those "inner circle meetings" with the likes of Axelrod, Hilary Rosen, Stefanie Cutter don't have pet names and not a small amount of contempt for their target demos.

"The more ghetto mommas we give free ObamaPhones and 250 free minutes a month - they more they vote for the Man who gives them mo' free stuff".

"We are polling really well with the younger Vaginas this week, all lining up like crushgurls for their ideal Boyfriend!"

"Yes, the vagina brigade is ours" And to think some of us were worried the cows would park their twats and go with handsome daddy with the great hair 3 months ago."

sleepless nights said...

I saw this as mainly a youth thing - egalitarian even. In the last 10-15 years or so, parents en masse began calling genitalia "girl parts" and "boy parts" - those kids have grown up now. It's "lady parts" and "lady boner" and all that.

It's more curret cute and friendly vernacular - a la vag and peen.

Jason Keenan said...

Ann,

Does this fear mongering on the official campaign page equate to the fear mongering by Rush about the Obama phone woman, which so quickly turned you against all conservatism on the basis of what you read between the lines?

Absolutely no subtlety here: Evil Republicans (TM) want to mess with your vagina! And you accuse Romney of a sickening use of fear? For something Rush said (but not really, you inferred it, perhaps justifiably).

If an "undecided" such as yourself can be so easily swayed against Romney and not disgusted by this, then it's going to be a long four years.
