How Human Events Will Kill Young Republicans

If the Republicans are really trying to open their arms to a younger crowd and distance themselves from the crotchety old dudes that the party is really all about, they're doing a very shitty job.

Conservative rag Human Events is giving away a new book called The Ultimate Man's Survival Guide. Here's what this book will teach American guys:

It gives young men what they need to become not effete "metrosexuals" skilled at the ins and outs of high fashion and cocktail chat, but well-rounded men who can fight off bears and alligators, create a tourniquet out of a t-shirt, set a dislocated joint, rescue a drowning person—and pick the perfect cigar and bottle of wine.

No book, especially one that's being given away buy Human Events for free, is going to adequately teach a young Republican how to successfully beat an alligator or a bear in a fight. But if this book inspires more young Republicans to pick fights with wild animals, then that'll just be OK.
