I kept hearing about about the Gore campaign having to explain him having these talks with Naomi Wolf. What’s up with that? I heard it was just so that she could help him figure out how he came off to women.
What’s the big deal?
Here were some WAGgish thoughts:
Wolf is a scandalous writer, since she writes about sex. So for the Vice President to talk to her is a national crisis, since it might mean that people in high political posts are comfortable with sex as a concept.
It is heinous that Gore can’t figure out what women think about him on his own.
Gore, being a Democrat, is a sex machine, and must be having an affair with Wolf.
Gore, being a Democrat, is a eunuch, and gosh ain’t it funny that he’s talking with a female of all people to deal with it.
It is bad for Gore to go outside of a narrow political set for advice, since we hate it when politicians rely on narrow political sets for advice, and for them to fail to do so seems insincere / like a fig leaf / something conspiratorial and sinister.
Okay, I don’t really believe anyone (outside mental institutions) really believes this, I just can’t figure out why this made the news. Maybe I’m just reeling from having watched “The O’Brien Factor” too many times (once).
Nothing I write about any person or group should be applied to a larger group.
