Dilbert creator Scott Adams thinks Hillary's numbers might actually drop after this convention:
I’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention and wondering if this will be the first time in history that we see a candidate’s poll numbers plunge after a convention.He says testosterone levels in men may be dropping who watch the convention because of the emphasis on female empowerment:
[I]f you’re an undecided voter, and male, you’re seeing something different. You’re seeing a celebration that your role in society is permanently diminished. And it’s happening in an impressive venue that was, in all likelihood, designed and built mostly by men. Men get to watch it all at home, in homes designed and built mostly by men, thanks to the technology that was designed and built mostly by men. I mention that as context, not opinion...
I watched singer Alicia Keys perform her song Superwoman at the convention and experienced a sinking feeling. I’m fairly certain my testosterone levels dropped as I watched, and that’s not even a little bit of an exaggeration. Science says men’s testosterone levels rise when they experience victory, and drop when they experience the opposite. I watched Keys tell the world that women are the answer to our problems. True or not, men were probably not feeling successful and victorious during her act.But I think the problem was even greater than that. I didn't see the Keys performance. I just watched a bit of the middle of goings on last night.
What I saw last night was Michael Bloomberg get on stage with his squeaky voice. The first thing I thought when I heard him was low testosterone and that I finally understood why he had to spend nearly a billion dollars to get elected mayor of New York City,
I thought that would be the low point, but then out skipped Tim Kaine. This guy is no testosterone.
Last night, Justin Raimondo and I both simultaneously thought he looked like Mister Rogers up there.
Hillary picked this guy as her running mate? That tells you a lot.
Quite frankly, to choose a phrase of the high-testosterone Donald Trump, at that point I was so drained that I didn't even watch the predictable, cautious, seriously pussy-whipped president. I read the transcript.
As I suspected, it was blah, blah, blah, nothing there.
The one high point of the evening came when the also low testosterone former CIA Director Leon Panetta was shouted down during his speech by convention delegates chanting "No more wars" and "Lies." It looked like he was going to cry.
As Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams point out this was significant. It shows there is life in the anti-war views of the rank and file Left.
Let's hope this theme grows---perhaps a Donald Trump presidency will draw them out.
