An article in this morning's NY Times, entitled, "Among Rock-Ribbed Fans of Palin, Dudes Rule," is an appropriate follow-up to my post from yesterday about how the hate being spewed by Palin's male followers is rooted in their insecure sexual identities.

Here's an excerpt from the Times piece:

"Palin’s stoutest defenders are often the Joe Sixpacks in her crowds, who shrug off her critics, ridiculers and perceived adversaries in the news media. It is not unusual for fans of Sarah Palin to shout out to the Alaska governor in the midst of her stump speeches. It is noteworthy, however, that the crowds are heavily male. When Sarah Palin makes a campaign appearance, as she did last month in Carson City, Nev., the men in the crowd often respond with particular enthusiasm. 'You rock me out, Sarah,' yelled one man, wearing a red-checked hunting jacket as Ms. Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, strode into an airplane hangar here on Thursday. He held a homemade 'Dudes for Sarah' sign and wore a National Rifle Association hat. Kenny Loggins’s 'Danger Zone' blared over the loudspeakers, and the man even danced a little — yes, a guy in an N.R.A. hat dancing in a hangar, kind of a Sarah Palin rally thing."

Gee, these guys aren't desperately fighting off their horny fantasies of joining the Rockettes or maybe... the Village People, are they?!
