Oxymorons

A very dignified Romney ram

. . . .  not to be confused with:

romneyn.  1.  One who demonstrates incompetence, lack of social conscience, and general disregard of at least 47% of the American population.  2.  One who is affronted by reality checks (see also, palinn.)

In other news . . . .  I am not sure what it means to be a “brainiac cheerleader” — from a breathless introduction by some news announcer, brainiac cheerleaders are “required” to have “advanced science degrees.”  And indeed, some do have these advanced science degrees: A dentist!  A Ph.D. in cellular molecular medicine!  A Ph.D. candidate in biomedical engineering!  But then, there’s the phlebotomist, and the financial analyst . . . .  A group of brainiac cheerleaders goes around the country performing cheerleading routines to “encourage” girls to study science.  Really?  If I were a young girl, I’m not sure what sort of message I am meant to be receiving, but as a woman with one of those “advanced science degrees” and mother of a teenage girl, I know what message am getting.  These women are  great examples of very smart women who think being smart and beautiful means also pandering to male fantasies.  I suppose that’s why  “mommy porn” along the line of Fifty Shades of Grey has been so depressingly popular.
