… and why alt-right is the alt-wrong, baby-headed poli-phil of self-indulgent, fifty-something eight-year-olds – at this the ugly, bad-dream end of the cult of self
(Kellyanne Conway photo from Reporte Nive1uno* on 20170127 – after coining the phrase “alternate facts” to describe the crowds at Donald Trump’s inauguration, and before taking a week off in mid-February to resynchronize her political spin apparatus, after being out-of-spin-sync on the Michael Flynn resignation, and personally endorsing Ivanka Trump’s cosmetic line.)
1) Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, girls, stop working on your own eyes, and start working on the eyes of your beholders.
GUY GIRL-BEHOLDER: What are you doing?
GIRL: Putting makeup on your eyes.
GIRL: To make America, and me, look great again.
2) Anti-anti-aging cream works best, when applied to others.
GG-B: But this cream you’re putting on my face, is actually making me look older.
GIRL: Yes. It’s really working. It’s anti-anti-aging cream.
GG-B: And this will …?
GIRL: Make America, and me, look great again.
3) If possible, apply anti-moisturizer on a windy day.
GG-B: Hey! This stuff is really drying out my skin.
GIRL: Yes. It works best when applied during windstorms.
GG-B: But my skin feels like …?
GIRL: A mask? That means it’s working.
GG-B: And wearing masks will …?
GIRL: Make America look great again.
GG-B: I’m sorry, but that’s just crazy.
GIRL: Exactly. Orange is the new black. Wrinkles that look like satellite views of the Grand Canyon, are the new smooth. Eyes that look like craters on the Moon are the new, windows of the cratered soul. Wrong is the new right. Bad the new good. And crazy is the new, flipping sane, that keeps on flipping. It’s all part of the alternate-beauty reality that is making the new, America the anti-beautiful, great again.
GG-B: Okay. But I’m not buying it. So how do I take all this anti-makeup off?
GIRL: That’s the best part. Golden showers are the only thing that really works.
GG-B: Because …?
GIRL: They’re totally anti-hygienic.
