Senator Kerry’s Spandex Paradox.
The Spandex Paradox
As Steve writes, “Don’t ask, just read.” The Lapsed Randian: The Senator’s Spandex Paradox…
I think the real problem is that the spandex is flowery. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but you can’t be the leader of the free world in flowery spandex. No one will take you seriously.
Lapsed Randian concludes,
“This is what geopolitical scholars might some day call the Spandex Parodox.”
No, they won’t.
Because it’s Lycra.
Don’t make fun without a clue, people.
Before you know it, you’re in an argument about the differences between manmade stretchy fibers and insisting that while the particulars were false, the story was true and therefore funny.
And we all know where that leads.
Don’t get so technical. Everyone knows what Spandex means as a generic term.
Like John, you sound like Spandex wearers with a problem communicating in common sense language. If you are a senior citizen and still wearing it, then you also have the poor judgement this blog was trying to help you and John with.
Good lord , Jim, relax. Spandex is Lycra.
“Spandex” is a general term for sproingy polyester or polyether polyol fibers, which are then woven into a proprietary blend with cotton, wool, linen, presidential candidates, etc.
“Lycra” is the tradename DuPont chose for its particular brand of spandex blend; other less-spiffy tradenames include Glospan, Cleerspan, and Dorlasten.
IMO–judging by the picture linked on Powerline–the issue is not age or jackoffery but thinness.
Kerry’s so scrawny that he’s wearing stretch-fit bike clothes that sag off him like a leper’s hide. It’s cycling fashion asshattery of the highest order!
That’s what happens when you’re six feet tall and two inches thick.
I keep wondering if John Kerry and Michael Jackson have the same problem: their inner circle consists mostly of paid sycophants; neither guy has a real friend, someone to tell them “dude, that doesn’t make any sense”, “man, that’s stupid”, “sheesh, lose those frigging pants, you look like a jackoff” and things like that.
ROFLMAO!! This is hilarious!
The Spandex Paradox!! It will go down in the annals of the known laws of the universe to violate at your own peril.
Since nobody seems to know where Kerry stands on any issue, I predict it will go down in history as “The Spandex Uncertainty Principal”.
No,no, not the Uncertainty Principle.
It’s Schoedinger’s Cat – Kerry’s “state” – his position on any issue – can’t be known until an observation has been made. Hence, his unwillingness to talk with real reporters (sorry, Jon). They might discover that the isotope decayed a bit, and he’s dead.
No surprise to the VRWC. (We peeked.)
Vodkapundit draws our attention to Senator Kerry’s wardrobe issues and how they relate to his foriegn policy issues:The real problem with the Spandex is that it is emblematic of the central contradiction of the Kerry foreign policy: his foreign policy…
