Young Americans for Puritanism

Back in the old days it was Young Americans for Freedom, right? Now it appears Puritanism is - sort of - on the agenda. The image above, lifted from Gawker.com, is of Ann Coulter, a mid-40-ish right-wing-ranter speaking at CPAC 2012. She is dressed, as you can see in a butt squeezing mini skirt and ugly boots.* But wait, here is a blog post from one Melissa Clouthier, apparently a young conservative ranter, complaining that her peers don't dress appropriately for events like CPAC ... and blaming their poor fashion choices on their moms. (Whatever happened to defending family values?) I don't get why Melissa doesn't have the brass to call out Ann for her lack of fashion sense. After all Melissa feels free to follow the great tradition of conservative thought and list multiple non-sequitors that follow on how young women dress: "Yay! Let’s promote STDs, drunken debauchery, casual sex, and by extension, the inevitable unwanted pregnancies and abortions that result." Melissa? Ann?
* To be clear, I don't care how Ann Coulter, or any other woman chooses to dress. Not my business. I'm just pointing out the idiocy of conservative life.

Back when I was an undergrad, we always thought that YAF stood for 'Young Aryans for Fascism'....
