Kevin Williamson has a big crush on Mitt Romney.

The Democrats have a substantial lead with women voters, but Kevin Williamson thinks they shouldn't.
From an evolutionary point of view, Mitt Romney should get 100 percent of the female vote. All of it. He should get Michelle Obama’s vote. You can insert your own Mormon polygamy joke here, but the ladies do tend to flock to successful executives and entrepreneurs. Saleh al-Rajhi, billionaire banker, left behind 61 children when he cashed out last year. We don’t do harems here, of course, but Romney is exactly the kind of guy who in another time and place would have the option of maintaining one. He’s a boss. 
Beyond parody.

Reading the piece in its entirety, however, it becomes clear that when Williamson claims that Romney's out-of-touch bully arouses "women," he means "Kevin Williamson." The entire three-page piece borrows its tone from websites where women swap fan-fiction stories in which Edward and Jacob kick Bella out of the house so they can reallly get down to business. Indeed, Williamson could give E.L. James a run for her money. I haven't read any Fifty Shades books, but I'll bet that no matter how kinky they get, they don't involve the kind of earthy sperm worship that Williamson offers his fantasy boyfriend Mitt Romney.
