The Democratic National Convention Day 3: A Testosterone Low

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.



  1. All I get out of it is the disconnect between rank and file Dems and Trump supporters. The media and Trump supporters. The Democratic leadership and Trump supporters. They all still think Trump has no chance because all of his supporters have got to be stupid. They are in for a ride awakening come November, they will find out how many stupid people come out to vote.

    I can't wait to see their condescending attitude after Trump wins. It just fuels more support for Trump.

    I hope I don't have to vote, but my city might have a $15 min. Wage on the ballot so I may have to take a stand against that.

  2. Testosterone is trending worldwide after the emasculating catastrophes of the early- and mid-20th century. It is going to be a powerful reversion to the mean which will overcorrect. Short femininity, long masculinity is an amazing trade right now in all fields of human action.

    You can drive out nature with a pitchfork, but it always comes roaring back again.

    Thanks for some of the most entertaining DNC coverage out there, Robert.

  3. Hahaha little Girl Scout. Don't have anyone u can force to kill for you anymore do you Leon?
    Pathetic tweek.
    That was awesome, good for those socialist, shout down those worthless murderous neo-cons!!!

  4. Although I'm afraid of a Trump presidency (and a Hillary presidency), seeing Hillary and her cronies shouted down and crapped on is very refreshing. I have to admit I'm pretty excited for the Trump-Hillary debates. I hope he destroys her.
