Too fit to fit in? Bio-psychology of the fat conservative voter

As the presidential run enters the decisive phases, BIO-POLITICS  come to the center of the arena in many ways:

a) subcrime is always the crime at the center of the plot: finance has exploited for years housing, a basic need

b) THE BODY OF THE CANDIDATES. A perfect body VERSUS a wrecked one.

c) Obama, too much perfect to fit into the expectations and indentification of 1/3 fat, obese Americans and 2/3 overweight. And identification, once a mechanism of romantic art, through Hollywood and the media, entered the bio-psichology of elections and voters expectations since long. Today’s, August 1st WSJ: Too Fit to Be President?

DUAL BINDING: OBAMA at the same time is required TO BE AND NOT TO BE a Nietzschean Super Man.

FT: Obama-love could hurt what it cherishes most

US presidents must be supermen who bestride the globe but must do a plausible impersonation of an ordinary guy, writes Chrystia Freeland

d) Mc Cain: a wrecked body by tortures and war, a wrecked campaign. Finding no better argument than this idiot one: “On Wednesday, the McCain campaign launched a new ad titled “Celeb” that compares Sen. Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears” (wsj, quoted). “Senator McCain’s latest “inexperience” TV ad about his opponent opened with fleeting images of celeb babes Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, who likely don’t know who he is. The celebrity link was a leap that fell flat.” (wsj August 1, editorial: Obama’s Bad Turn).

e) Question: how many neurons are connected in McCain’s brain? Here is the answer, from an above suspect source, such a hardliner conservative bastion as WSJ: HARDLY ANY NEURON. Is John McCain Stupid? By Daniel Henninger.

On Sunday, he said on national television that to solve Social Security “everything’s on the table,” which of course means raising payroll taxes. On July 7 in Denver he said: “Senator Obama will raise your taxes. I won’t.”

This isn’t a flip-flop. It’s a sex-change operation.(..)

t’s not just taxes. Recently the subject came up of Al Gore’s assertion that the U.S. could get its energy solely from renewables in 10 years. Sen. McCain said: “If the vice president says it’s doable, I believe it’s doable.” What!!??

… Sen. McCain called Nancy Pelosi an “inspiration to millions of Americans.” Notwithstanding his promises to “work with the other side,” this is a politically obtuse thing to say in the middle of a campaign. (…)

Yes, Sen. McCain must somehow appeal to independents and blue-collar Hillary Democrats. A degree of pandering to the center is inevitable. But this stuff isn’t pandering; it’s simply stupid.

(..) Why .. shouldn’t the Obama camp exploit all of this? If Sen. Obama’s “inexperience” is Mr. McCain’s ace in the hole, why not trump that by asking, “Does Sen. McCain know his own mind?”


f) ICE CREAM are the Presidential test, and Obama didn’t pass it yet. Innocent Shasha Obama says the bare  truth: there is something anti-bio, deeply in-natural in all this comedy. WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM. WHY SHOULD PAPA NOT ICE SCREAM? WSJ:

On a campaign stop in May at Lew’s Dari-Freeze in Milwaukie, Ore., Sen. Obama’s wife, Michelle, and their two daughters ate ice-cream sundaes and onion rings, while Sen. Obama grinned for the cameras and swirled a spoon around in his quickly melting ice-cream concoction, taking only a few nibbles.

During a July family appearance on “Access Hollywood,” Sen. Obama’s 7-year-old daughter, Sasha, revealed that her dad doesn’t like ice cream or sweets. “Everybody should like ice cream,” she said.

g) AS IF THE CONTRAST ENERGY-YOUTH versus  OLD & IDIOT was not enough, Vanity Fair yearly competition for Best Dressed has irrupted into the electoral campaign. Underlining a bio evidence which was under the table until today: Michelle is just beautiful,  her elegance is superb. We might have under-valued the incoming First Lady. This is the  odd of bio-politics: Vanity Fair has altered the whole  balance of power, by just registering a matter of fact.   By Melissa Whitworth:

Keren Eldad, New York fashion manager of the Los Angeles Times, said: “McCain’s style is like the political style of her husband: conservative and outdated. It screams ‘safety’ and escapes any nod to change, to risk, or to bravado. She may throw on a tailored leather jacket every once again, but through her pearls and all that hairspray, can we really detect any semblance of inspiration? Of fun?

“Obama, on the other hand, gets it. She IS a modern woman, she has fun with fashion, she embraces life with fury and grace – making apparel choices so varied, that time and again signal this woman never sees anything in life as constant. That’s change. And that is the essence of what fashion is all about”.
