What not to give out a Republican Convention


Good Monday Evening!

5; 32; 23.5; 44. Numbers to Remind the Republican Party to “Keep it Classy”……

I occasionally stop at at the local establishment called Joseph’s Market on the way home. There are so many aromas, so many sumptuous foods. Actually, when I see so many types of good looking foods, I really get confused and end up buying a couple of tomatoes and some cheese. Or one slice of pizza, or both. But one thing I notice actually FLIES off of the shelves……. The rice cakes. They must be “delish” but I think I will pass. I hardly ever see men purchasing this “treat” — it is invariably a woman.

It is as important for a woman to look good to herself as well as to men. From an early age, it is hammered into a woman’s head the importance of her pulchritude. A recent study in Great Britain involving 500 girls between the ages of 11 and 17 found that the widespread lack of physical confidence has led to girls spending an average of 42 minutes a day working on their appearance, choosing outfits and applying make-up – almost as much time as they spend doing homework.More than half of the girls studied said they would be happier if they were more physically attractive.

Remember the commercial “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful”? Could you imagine a man cozying up to the camera with his lips puckered saying “Don’t hate me because I’m cute” ….. Nope.

Which brings me to another area, it is important for a woman to stay YOUNG. Especially for a woman! When a woman is asked about getting older the response will likely be “Oh, no, I don’t want to get old. No, thanks, I’d rather be dead.” The almost unanimous verdict? Some women would rather die early than get old enough so they weren’t beautiful any more. Its a pretty sensitive topic, if you ask me.

So….. no need to beleaguer this point anymore…..Women have always payed a great deal of attention to their looks. In fact a woman’s appearance can, from an early age, influence the type of day she has; the type of life she achieves.

So lets go back to the numbers: 5; 32; 23.5; 44

>Only 5 percent of the women in America are Blonde. Yet most advertisements feature blondes.

>Only 32 percent of the women in America do not qualify in the “overweight or above” category. Yet the standard for the media makes this group appear to be in the majority.

>Only 23.5 percent of women in America are between 18 and 35. You would never know this fact since this statistical group appears EVERYWHERE.

>Only 44 percent of women voted Republican in the last election.

So………. What DON’T you do when you are losing the female vote? Well …….. hmmmmmmm………. I think you don’t make folly of her “thick” thighs, her small breasts, and her lack of definition in her arms. You might risk offending MOST of the women by that little blunder. It might be the equivalent of a white person showing up in “Black Face” to a Black History gala – a little uncomfortable feeling might come over you. Among other things.

Making “hay “out of the looks of 75% of women can NOT be a winning strategy. And that bit of advice is free.. and valuable…

    Interesting stats. How do you suggest we get more women involved. We even have a hard time getting them involved in Common Core & that effects their children. We need a magic bullet.
