Libertarianism and sexual frustration, case #3126

Actual dialogue between me and cute female Kerry supporter in Clarendon today:

Her: [Winks as I approach the corner.]

Me: [Smiles back.]

Her: [Now crossing street with me.] I don’t normally ask this to people crossing the street, but I could tell a mile away that you’d like to help defeat Bush.

Me: I would, actually, but not so much by voting for Kerry.

Her: Oh, you’re a Nader supporter.

Me: No, no, I’m a libertarian, but our guy’s a kook this year.

Her: You’re just like my dad.


  1. ks says:

    did you get her number?

  2. Jacob says:

    Nope, that was pretty much it.

  3. Mike says:

    C’mon man, you could have hooked up with her and been like, “Who’s your daddy?”

  4. More like: “Who’s your daddy, but ironically, simultaneously opposes the paternalism endemic to our two major parties?” Yeah. That would have been hot.

  5. Ben Stark says:

    Jacob, I’m an evangelical Christian who never intends to have sex before marriage. But if you had said the statement Kevin proposes at the proper time, you would STILL be my hero.

  6. Jacob says:

    Kevin, that would have left her speechless, I’m sure. Ben, if the Don Juans of Vanderbilt ever write Adventures in Nerdery II, that’s definitely going in.

  7. Phil says:

    Jacob –

    Nice blog.

    Badnarik’s got himself a sign war going with Peroutka out here in the suburbs. They’re doing battle on the center medians of Fairfax County Parkway

  8. Tim Swanson says:

    Ben, you should go down on Jesus or something — like Cartman did.

  9. Totally uncalled for, man. No Tortilla of Valour for you!

  10. Meredith says:

    I hate it when girls tell me I remind them of their father.
