PeakNation™, you may not have noticed seeing how it was buried beneath the “4 Words That Seduce Any Man. Anytime” or “138 Bangin’ Bikinis” or “10 Subliminal Mind Tricks That Make People Adore You” headlines, but Cosmopolitan Magazine just endorsed Sen. Mark Udall. Now, the Colorado Lefties will naturally try to shout-down any objection we have to this (a favorite technique of the Left, yell louder when your argument is inferior), that despite Cosmopolitan inventing more sex positions than the Kama Sutra, they can have real journalists there as well. On that point, we agree. What we object to is the same thing that outrages us when Michael Bloomberg talks about Colorado: We’re tired of liberal elitists living in penthouses in New York City thinking they can come to Colorado and tell us how to live our lives. Listen you damn Yankees, if we wanted what you’d have, we’d move there; how do you think a majority of people got to Colorado in the first place?
It’s not that the endorsement is in Cosmopolitan Magazine, it’s that it’s clear Cosmo has as much knowledge about our Senatorial race as Bloomberg does about roads in El Paso county. While there is still nearly two months before election day, and we’re only days removed from the first Senatorial debate where Udall was liken more to “a deer caught in… headlights” than a sitting Senator, Cosmo feels they have seen enough to make an informed decision.
For as much as Cosmo likes to promote itself as a magazine that empowers females, it sure does take a shallow view of them. As Joanna Coles, Cosmos Editor-in-Chief, told Politico just last week, women don’t care about anything in the world beyond their reproductive organs (mostly):
The Cosmo endorsement criteria fall squarely into the liberal camp — equal pay, pro-choice, pro-birth control coverage, anti-restrictive voter-ID laws. Asked how a candidate who might line up on certain issues like equal pay but is pro-life would fare, Odell said that would be a deal breaker.
Odell is like the female-version of Tom Steyer, a self-important, extreme liberal who thinks they are riding in on a white horse to save the Luddites who still bang rocks together from themselves. Can Cosmo even claim to have sent a single editor or reporter to Colorado to report on the race? We’re guessing not, because if they did, they would realize Colorado women are fiercely independent, self-confident individuals who could care less about “subliminal mind tricks” needed to make people like them. And, are definitely more complex, more interesting, and more demanding of the world around them than just how Cosmo and Mark Udall define them: as some reproductive organs.
