Women Think About Fashion More Than Men Think About Sex
RUSH: Snerdley, you'll be fascinated by this. Huffing and Puffington Post: "Men Think About Sex Less Than Women Think About Fashion, Survey Says." Stick with me on this. It might explain a lot. "How many times a day do you think about fashion? According to an online study, women have fashion on the brain 91 times in a given day -- that's more than four times the amount that men think about sex. Online retailer Very.co.uk surveyed British women to see just how many times from sunrise to sunset" they thought about fashion.
"In fact, it says here: "[E]ven simply daydreaming about that dress you should have bought during Kim Kardashian's eBay sale." That's what it says. "According to the study, a fashion thought manages to creep into women's minds for an hour and 19 minutes every day. That means that every 11 minutes and 23 seconds a woman stops to ponder style" or fashion. "Also noteworthy is the clothing item that tops the list: dresses. (Not shoes?)"
Four times more than men think about sex.
Anna Wintour: Dem Power Player
RUSH: From the Washington Post. Look what one dinner party at Sarah Jessica Parker's house with what's-her-face, the Helmet Head, Anna Wintour does. The Washington Post: "Links To Obama Campaign Show Fashion Industry’s Political Clout Is Growing." So the Huffing and Puffington Post with a survey on women and their thoughts on fashion. The Washington Post: "On Tuesday, Anna Wintour, the Vogue editor who holds sway over much of the US fashion industry, is expected in Chicago, where she and supermodel Iman will join President Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, for a night of stumping.
"For $1,000, donors can schmooze, shop and pose for photos with" Anna Wintour. "Two days later, Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker are planning to host a $40,000-a-plate fundraising dinner with the Obamas at Parker's New York home. The two high-priced, high-profile events put the spotlight on a symbiotic relationship developing between the Obama campaign, with its style-conscious first lady ... and a deep-pocketed, largely Democratic fashion industry, which has been increasingly coordinating its support of Obama."
I don't believe this. So we've now got the fashion industry as a major player in the Democrat Party. There is a made-up War on Women that the Obama campaign has ginned up. They are having trouble with women. In fact, the gender gap is narrowing. "Mitt Romney has significantly narrowed the gender gap with President Obama despite massive Democratic attacks on the GOP over a variety of issues. As recently as April, Obama led Romney by 18% among women voters in a USA Today/Gallup poll of 12 swing states.
"The huge advantage with women gave Obama an overall edge of 9%. Recent polls show Romney has sliced into that lead. In the same USA Today/Gallup poll from early May, the president’s lead among women was cut to 12%, reducing Obama’s overall swing state lead to 2." So the fashion industry is going in all the way for Obama. Who would have...? Unbelievable. And, of course, the fashion industry is... Well, it's heavily populated by gay activists as well.
So this all, politically, makes some sense.
RUSH: Kevin in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush! It's a real honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: I'm a long-term listener, first-time caller. I was wondering if you have any thoughts on I'll Have Another scratched from the race. No chance of a Triple Crown.
RUSH: Well, I'll Have Another is not gonna have another.
CALLER: (chuckles) Right, right.
RUSH: You know what? I just learned that today, and I only saw the headline so I don't know any detail. All I know is... All I know is that the sports media has been trying to -- I don't know -- destroy the trainer of this horse. They have been really going after this guy. Apparently he has a history of doping horses that he's trained, and networks that televise are not being honest and open about who this guy is.
So the print sports media guys are trying to let everybody know what an unsavory character that the trainer is. But I guess it's a disappointing thing because this horse was reputed to be the best chance for a Triple Crown winner since the seventies. Tendinitis is the problem. Not concussions. Concussions are not a problem in horse racing. If the horse had a concussion, they'd run him. But tendinitis, they gotta sit the horse down.
