Zombie explores the reason conservative women — Ann Coulter, Michelle Malking (er, me) — inspire (sometimes sexually tinged) over the top reactions in leftist men, who never get similarly unhinged at the mere sight of their male counterparts or the mention of their name. (Can you imagine a riot at a PJ O’Rourke speech?)
Why are liberals obsessed with Sarah Palin?
Because she is their dominatrix.
I posit that American liberal men are, as a group, masochists in search of a sadist. Sarah Palin at first walked into the dominant role completely unwittingly, but once she grasped the erotic control she wielded over her opponents, she became not quite as unwitting about it as some may think.
Sexual kinks are a peculiar thing: they often make no logical sense to an outsider who does not share the fetish. How can liberals denounce Sarah Palin as a Nazi and a bitch and an idiot yet simultaneously harbor a masturbatory fascination with her?
There is a one-word answer: Ilsa.
