The “Sluts” Of CPAC

-Submitted by David Drumm (Nal), Guest Blogger

“Dr.” Melissa Clouthier (left) isn’t happy with some of the female attendees at CPAC 2012. The Dr. is in quotes because Clouthier is an alternative health “doctor” and part-time chiropractor. That is, a woo-meister, who thinks “Feng Shui makes lots of sense.”

Clouthier has some tips for women who wish to succeed in business or politics.

1. No cleavage. That’s right. Cover that up. I say “no” in absolutist terms because women will show a tiny bit and that’s okay, but really, in a business environment where ideas are the priority, a dude thinking about your ta-tas is counter-productive.

Ta-tas? How can anyone take someone who says ta-tas seriously?

2. Skirts no more than three finger-widths above the knee. Why do I even have to write this? Well, because someone is allowing these girls out of the house with mini-skirts that reveal too much.

That’s right, someone else is to blame for “allowing” these girls to dress like that. Those poor girls are just victims of someone else’s negligence.

3. Save the stilettos for Saturday night on a date with your boyfriend.

How does being on a date with your boyfriend remove the sluttiness from wearing stilettos? The girl has already attracted her boyfriend, the stilettos aren’t for him.

4. Bend at the knee. No, I don’t want to see your butt.

Why is Clouthier looking at girls’ butts?

It makes perfect sense for a female to attract as many potential mates as possible, she wants to have as large a group as she can from which to make her selection. It is the females of most species who make the sexual selection. The males compete to win the female’s favors. It is one of the female’s strategies for reproductive success. These are the gender roles conservative culture warriors fight so hard to maintain.

  1. She actually believes covered or uncovered makes a difference in men thinking about women’s breasts?

    Does she actually know any men?

    Women could be encased in concrete and a huge percentage of men would still be thinking about their breasts.

  6. Speaking of Which, Dating Guru Comes to CPAC

    Shows you how to hook up with the Sluts of CPAC.

    Conservatives down on their luck in the love department, fear no more. CPAC has just the event for you. The schedule for the largest annual gathering of conservatives includes a special forum this year for right-wing singles.

    Guiding them through daring dating waters will be dating coach Wayne Elise, pictured at right, shirtless and holding a pair of tiny scissors. He has been hailed a pick-up artist and an escape artist (this doesn’t scare us at all). “Learn everything from how to avoid scaring away your own personal Dagny Taggart in the first five minutes of the conversation, to whether Tea Partiers and Occupiers can share something more than a dislike for bailouts,” the description for the event says. For the uniformed, Taggart is the protagonist in Ayn Rand‘s Atlas Shrugged.

    The event will be held Thursday, Feb. 9 in the McKinley room at the Marriott.

  7. Need I tell this wingnut that chiropractors aren’t doctors and never were? If you have a DEA license to perscribe all classes of medication, you’re a doctor.

  10. Swarthmom mom,

    A friend told me about that clip (and what happened at CPAC), but I hadn’t watched it yet. Thank for posting it.

  11. !Woo!????!

    Accredited chiropractic programs in the U.S. require that applicants have 90 semester hours of undergraduate education with a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Many programs require at least three years of undergraduate education, and more are requiring a bachelor’s degree.[80] Canada requires a minimum three years of undergraduate education for applicants, and at least 4200 instructional hours (or the equivalent) of full‐time chiropractic education for matriculation through an accredited chiropractic program.[81]

    Graduates of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) are formally recognized to have at least 7–8 years of university level education.[82][83] The World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines suggest three major full-time educational paths culminating in either a DC, DCM, BSc, or MSc degree. Besides the full-time paths, they also suggest a conversion program for people with other health care education and limited training programs for regions where no legislation governs chiropractic.[1]
    well that’s about the same schooling as lawyers, no?

    a quick look at her blog reveals a rather fundy rightwingster, very anti-Obama and abortion who refers to herself as a ‘breeder’. Personally I don’t disagree with any of her suggestions above but as for the stillettos….’The girl has already attracted her boyfriend, the stilettos aren’t for him.’ Well stilettos, the famous cfmp’s- they cast a too wide and undiscerning net…

  12. Looks like bdaman won the Jonesing title going away.

    The ongoing War on Women is scary because some women have bought into it. And are actually enabling it. As for “Dr.” Melissa Clouthier and NH state Rep. Jeanine Notter, it appears they are trying to outdo Michelle Bachmann and Virginia Foxx in the batshit crazy department.

    Haldol and Thorazine is good for some conditions, but I don’t think there is any medication to cure stupid. To paraphrase the late Flip Wilson, wrong is only skin deep, but stupid goes clear to the bone.

  13. WOW OS……You too took great licensing in paraphrasing “Beauty is skin deep and ugly is to the bone…. “…..But what do I know……The Devil made me do it….

  14. Bdaman,

    Seriously? First of all I find your slut humor more than offensive and trust me both my sexual liberalism and my knowledge of obscenity far exceeds yours. People who call women sluts because of their sexuality are hypocritical patriarchists. We know this because rampant male sexuality has no comparable terms and is in fact viewed/accepted by the average male as a given.

    Secondly, your barrage of smutty humor was merely an attempt to divert from any serious discussion of CPAC misogyny. Your definitely are a faithful follower cum protector of your conservative cause. You sure you’re not on the Koch payroll?

  15. We have a retired chiropractor who talks to us here at the dolphin base. He says he is NOT a doctor of medicine because he is a doctor of health and that there is a difference. Ever heard of a person OD from a back rub? People with real pain flock to chiropractors because they do a good job. People who are drug addicts flock to Doctors of Medicine to lie and get drugs so that they can get a buzz. Buzz Doctors. Dr. Bachus tells us to wiggle more when we swim and to arch our backs when we play the bow crossing game with pleasure boats in the harbour. My mate Ike has cured his back problems listening to this talk.

  16. A brief, instructive history of chiropractic. As a note of my possible negative perspective towards it, my mother went to one in the 1950’s who held out the possibility of ameliorating her desperate cardiac problems and wound up hospitalized for months with a bad slipped disc. Since I was about ten at the time her absence weighed heavily on me.

  17. Mike I’m just piling on to what Nal started.

    “People who call women sluts because of their sexuality are hypocritical patriarchists.”

    Nals title is “The Sluts Of CPAC”

    I can only deduce that Nal is characterizing some women of CPAC as sluts based on what Dr. Melissa Clouthier has written although I’ve read his links and find no mention or inference of who she writes about as being sluts. So if you find people who call women hypocritical patriarchates then you must feel this way about Nal.

    As I stated

    “Yeah I don’t think the professor would approve of the title but what the heck lets run with it.”

    This after Anon Nurse even questioned it

    ““Slut?” Help me out here… I’m nearly speechless.”

    To which I replied

    “The word slut is just demeaning to all women. Kinda like calling Whitney Huston a crack ho.”

    Maybe you should talk to Nal first.

  18. It was Melissa Clouthier who used the term “sluts” to describe certain CPAC women.

    What follows are some of Melissa Clouthiers comments:

    “Women will be future leaders, too, and I was dismayed to see how many of them either looked frumpish or like two-bit whores.

    First, are these young people being taught anything by their parents? I was at another service-oriented gathering of young women where the girls were in tight bandeau-skirts (you know, the kind of tube-top skirts that hookers wear on street corners?). They were sitting with their mothers. What is going on here?

    Second, have women so internalized feminist dogma that they see themselves in only two ways? Butch, men-lite wannabes or 3rd wave sluts who empower themselves by screwing every available horndog man?”

    — Melissa Clouthier’s words, to be clear

  19. “Second, have women so internalized feminist dogma that they see themselves in only two ways? Butch, men-lite wannabes or 3rd wave sluts who empower themselves by screwing every available horndog man?”

    A question was presented, followed by two ends of the spectrum that serve as examples. Ms. Clouthier did not call the women attending the CPAC “sluts”. The person calling them “sluts” is David Drumm, an agent of Professor Jonathan Turley.

    @anon nurse, As you were one of the first to raise objection to the use of the term “sluts”, but now appear to come back and see it as justified (due to the word being used when identifying opposite ends of the spectrum, after a question was presented; Will you accept that same justification to be applied in all other instances? In other words; If I quote a question presented by someone else, and show that person to have followed with examples, will you permit me to assert that the person doing so was attributing the label to those in the intended audience?

  20. Karl,
    Would you please diagram your last two sentences, directed to anon nurse?

    The first sentence was about 60 words, with an unmatched parenthesis.

    The second, an attempt to clarify the first, was over 40 words. Too many clauses. I can’t follow them.

    Try several, short sentences?

  21. @anon nurse, As you were one of the first to raise objection to the use of the term “sluts”, but now appear to come back and see it as justified


    Let me be clear — I don’t see the use of the word as “justified”, as you say. Personally, I wouldn’t have it…

    I posted the text of Ms. Clouthier’s remarks, for clarification — there’s nothing like hearing it from the horse’s mouth (and seeing statements in context.) I was trying to figure out the origin of the term “sluts” in the context of this posting.

    As to whether or not Ms. Clouthier referred to CPAC women, specifically, as “sluts” isn’t clear. Having said this, she clearly used the words “sluts” and “two-bit whores” in describing certain women and girls.

    Now we can further dissect further Ms. Clouthier’s words, but I don’t have the time or interest in doing so today. From my vantage point, they pretty much speak for themselves.

  22. Melissa Clouthier:

    You know what a guy thinks when you slut-it-up? He thinks: If she’ll do that with me, she’ll do that with anyone.

    Those who “slut-it-up” are those CPAC women who didn’t follow Clouthier’s four points.

  23. Nal,

    Thanks for the clarification and additional information.

    I missed the following link in your posting:

    CPAC: The Jersey Shore-ification Of Our Young People

    February 14, 2012 / 11:09 am

    By Dr. Melissa Clouthier

    In her article, she refers to an Erick Erickson “must-read piece” (her phrase) which follows:

  24. Correction:

    Personally, I wouldn’t have it… should have been

    Personally, I wouldn’t have used the word in the title, but this isn’t my article and it’s not my blog.

    The author has the perfect right to choose his own words, however objectionable I might find them… And it’s not as if he pulled the word out of thin air… (clarification for Karl)

  25. SLUTS….

    If I recall SLUT stands for South Lake Union Trolley….It is in Seattle, WA….. Its ok to say to the driver can you slow down this slut…won’t do any good…but you can always try…….

    But another use of a SLUT is the one you drive…..Sports Large Utility Trucks….Think Cadillac Escalade…or Chevy Avalanche….that is the cheap slut….still expensive to drive….You see them all over…

    There are so many uses for the term SLUT…..why would anyone really be offended….

  26. AN,

    When there was a Buddha and I am not saying there is not….It was stated something like this….He woke up just to Harass and I awakened jut to annoy….I know I got at least part of the above right….

    I do wonder if you can be arrested for solicitation in Seattle if you get into an unregistered taxi…. As it is call the SLUTaxi….

  27. I used Clouthier’s word. The title was meant to be provocative, enticing the reader to peruse the rest of the post. As should be clear from the post, I disagree with Clouthier’s classification of these women.

  28. Nal,


    “The title was meant to be provocative, enticing the reader to peruse the rest of the post.” It is (provocative) and it does (entice).

    “As should be clear from the post, I disagree with Clouthier’s classification of these women.”

    Abundantly clear to those who read your postings (and comments) regularly.

  29. Nal,

    Just out of curiosity, is there a reason that you didn’t use quotation marks, since you were using Clothier’s word?

  30. Shenstone, 1765:

    “She’s ugly, she’s old,… And a slut, and a scold.”

    John Gay (1685–1732),

    I’ll speed me to the pond, where the high stool
    On the long plank, hangs o’er the muddy pool,
    That stool the dread of ev’ry scolding quean.

    Benjamin West, :
    There stands, my friend, in yonder pool,
    An engine call’d a ducking-stool;
    By legal pow’r commanded down,
    The joy and terror of the town.

  31. Wow, T-man! This has to be one of your top three worthless guest posts in quite a while.

    “Dr”?? Do only graduates from AMA-sanctioned institutions get to use Dr. without the “quotes”? Gimme a break. How many people do chiropractors kill each year? How many “Dr”s of dentistry still fill kids’ mouths with deadly mercury fillings and slavishly promote medicating all of us with fluoride. I guess only bona fide mainstream quacks get the respect of being called DOCTOR without the quotes.

    That flushing sound . . . the credibility of this blog by the day.

  32. I will give the Professor credit for defending women who dress a bit provocatively as merely extending their pool of eligible males with whom to mate. What women don’t know however is that they could dress in pretty much anything other than a Burkka and plenty of men will hit on them. Perfectly good looking girls agonize over dress and makeup etc. for no real reason. I personally think that dressing up is often more about a woman’s vanity than anything else. If I was a girl I would probably be broke from buying clothes, makeup and Ugg boots.

  33. Amanda Marcotte:

    Intra-Conservative Sex Scolding

    Clouthier was interested in policing women for clothes that suggest there’s a body underneath them and telling young women no one will marry you if word gets out that you like having sex. I guess she’s suggesting conservative men are terrified of having to live with a woman who might on occasion want to get naked and get busy, suggesting to me that the differences between liberals and conservatives might be more vast than I thought.
