MAC & Este Lauder: Are You Aware of Your Market?

Here's a political problem even my sister can get exercised about. MyVastRightWingConspiracy reports this:

sandra-bernhart-thin-lipped-republican-bitches1.jpg So, M.A.C. doesn’t want “little freaked out, intimidated, frightened, right-wing Republican thin-lipped bitches” wearing their oh-so-glam makeup? So says Sandra Bernhard–what a brilliant choice of spokes-skanks! She fits right in with the trashy image! I suppose someone thought it would be “edgy” and “cool” having that B-list loudmouthed one-trick pony insulting a large swath of America. Nevermind the fact that even we Republican “bitches”–wait for it–actually BUY cosmetics!

How endearing. Cosmetics for the BDS set.
What I find interesting is this: Conservative women and Gay men are the chief consumers of make-up. Hello! Oh, and Maureen Dowd. Ever heard of Neiman-Marcus? Dillards? Foleys? Macy's? Their make-up departments are odes to women who believe in a couple things: 1) it's not how you feel, it's how you look and 2) rouge.

Here in Houston, you can't turn around twice without bouncing off of a surgically enhanced breast. Public pools are just not safe--for a man's eyesight. Men's eyeballs rest on their cheekbones after popping out of the sockets. Weird the first time you see it, but just another thing you get used to in Texas.

Meanwhile, in New York city, women wear black, and black. Boy boobs are flaunted sans brazziere (flat chests). Less is more and all that nihilistic nonsense.

That the Lauder clan is so incredibly ignorant as to piss off ladies who value a good foundation above all else... Well, I guess the Dixie Chicks aren't the only ones who place their politik over common sense.

I completely agree with you. I even talked about this on my blog too.
