AIR RAGE. Ed Driscoll at Instapundit points to this YouTube audio from The Dennis Miller Show. Made a transcript:
CALLER: I've been a flight attendant for just about 30 years, and for years, I like to call them the 15 hour hostage crisis on these long hauls that I fly, you're together 16 hours, and for years, you know, I think all light attendants assume everyone is Democrat, and I've just listened or I just stay busy, and they're angry, angry, but as I've gotten older, it's kind of when Bush was in, I gave 'em the international stop sign, I said, "Love Rumsfeld, voting' for Romney." And talk about squelching any conversation for the rest of the 15 hours. Seriously, And over the years I've realized that the flight attendants tend to overwhelming be kind of snarky angry Democrats. However, my husband is a pilot, and they tend to almost all be Republican.
MILLER: Oh that's interesting, that's interesting.
CALLER: And I used to attribute it to them being ex-military, but we're getting more and more civilian pilots through the hearts. But I felt like I kinda had to hang with them sometimes.
MILLER: I can imagine when you first cranked up a Rumsfeld-Romney comment in front of the rest of the stews, the oxygen masks must have dropped down 'cause it decompressed.
CALLER: This one flight attendant called Rumsfeld the spawn of Satan, and I said, "Love Rummy!" I go, "Love him!"
MILLER: You should have said, oh by the way, the guy in 3A wants a Rum and Coke, doll!
CALLER: I wasn't that fast on my feet! But now I'll just go, "Love Romney."
MILLER: It's comin' around, Janet.
CALLER: You see that gal, it's like, now, Nana Jan, she is saying' it loud and sayin' it proud, and then they just, that's it.
MILLER: Listen, you gotta be your own dame. You know that. Seeing a lot more signs in yards, Janet. It's good anecdotal stuff for Romney. I didn't see any last time. People were afraid to get their house bricked. But I see a lot of signs. I think something's tectonically turned out there. Thanks for the call, Janet.
Soooo the new rightwing thing is flight attendants are prejudiced against Republicans but we're gonna show them because we have the pilots and yard signs.

I realize this is the 24-hour rah-rah stage of the campaign season but Jesus Christ, that's sad. And the worst part: Flight attendants don't take tips, so Dr. Mrs. Ole Perfesser and the Go Galt crew have no way to show them their disapproval.

Up next: Those damn tailors are all Obamabots, I can tell by the way they crease my trousers. But all the haberdashers are voting for Romney!

UPDATE. I should add that Miller having this on his show isn't the weird part -- air time is hard to fill, and as the rightwing talk radio form is as mysterious to me as Kabuki this just might be how they roll. What's weird is the preservation and circulation of the conversation by rightbloggers, as if there's something meaningful or uplifting in it. I'm not sure I get it. Do they actually take perverse comfort in declaring yet another area in American life (like the arts, academia, scientific research, etc.) Democrat-infested? Or do they just like the punchline that pilots are Republicans (except maybe Chesley Sulllenberger)? Maybe because pilots give flight attendants orders, they think this makes them superior...

Ugh, I have to stop thinking about it. Put on my tombstone that I got my abnormal psychology degree from the school of hard knocks.

    Yeah, because flight attendants just love dealing with loudmouths of all descriptions after spending 20 hours a day on a damn plane. They all just dream of spending a transcontinental flight talking politics.


    Given that they claim to be the party of PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY HAFTA WORK FOR A LIVING DERP DERP, they sure seem to lack any fucking contact with people who have jobs. Everything in the Republican mind is a prop or a piece of furniture, and that absolutely includes other people and especially workers. They think they're so goddamn special that everyone just needs to spend their day sucking up to them and humoring their bullshit. Tell you what, lady, if I ever happen to be a flight attendant on your plane, I'll fill your rum and coke with transmission fluid.

    And she has one hell of a fantasy life for the reasons spelled out by S.Lee - I also could spend all day spinning up straw conversations with my lunicidal coworkers. But except for the rare occasion when bullshit MUST absolutely be called out, life is quieter and easier with a job that I must keep if my coworkers and myself, per a sort of understood truce, no one's political orientation is too secret, keep our yappers shut at work. Off hours, have at it, but you ain't gonna have much of a social life - "How's the salmon?" "The liberals are attempting to abort the rich." "Um, peachy."


    No one, just for grins, just as an ice breaker, says Rumsfeld is Satan. No one!.

    Pilots are officers. Officers may skew Republican. Enlisted not so much, I think. Anyway Obama is getting a lot of support, donations, and votes from the military crowd.

    If at all possible, I would like to see Obama in his second term just crushing this Republican presumption that the Armed Forces belongs to them and is composed entirely of Republicans and that Democrats are sissies who don't know what "strength" means.

    BULLSHIT!

    Commercial airline pilots have seen their wages plummet over the past 20 years, and their pensions and benefits are eroding. I've read some pilots use food banks to get by.

    The pilots who belong to unions are militant.

    I can't imagine any sane commercial pilot supporting Randian Republicans, given the appalling conditions many of them are slaving under.

  26. Yesterday, I rode the plane for the first time from the airport near my house, and ended up chatting with a lifelong liberal stewardess who has just flown from Arizona. We talked about the vagaries of the national airline industry, and then after a pause, she said, "You know, you may have heard us talking about you people, how we don't want you here. A lot of people are saying you all are taking the sky from us. Way I feel is, you don't own the sky." She paused and looked around the admittedly somewhat liberal food cart, with its vegetarian, kosher and halal meals. "Besides, look what we did with it. We had the sky for forty years, and look what we did with it!"

    You can't take the sky from meeeee…. unless you're Jane Galt.

  30. There are so many "snarky, angry" things to say about this little exchange--how serious issue always devolve to sports team bravado, etc., etc., that I'll leave it to wittier pundits than me.


    The part that epitomizes the entire patriarchal fucked-up mindset of the modern wingnut conservatoid, however, is Miller's absolutely dismissively misogynistic attitude to a caller he purportedly agrees with.


    Although "janet" refers to herself and colleagues as flight attendants, Miller chooses to refer to her as both a "stew" and a "dame" (and suggest she refer to a colleague as a "doll"). This blatant lack of respect for his caller's self-image, who admittedly seems to be numb to such assholery (probably getting it in spades from her darling mad men pilots of the sky), really illustrates the fundamental lack of human decency that is at the core of conservative beliefs.

    I'm reading this more as someone who's burnt out on flight attendance telling the younger stews to just shut the fuck up already, and using the political aspect of it to bitch about her job. I can't imagine anyone bringing up Rumsfeld in a negative light in a casual conversation unless their own spouse was serving in the military during the aughts, and in that case Janet (whose husband probably served in the Reagan Administration, at the latest) doesn't have much to say WRT the problems of modern military spouses; she just wants those young'uns to put a cork in it so that she can concentrate on her sudoku.

    Dear Penthouse Forum: I was on a flight some months ago when a pretty lady with a Southern accent sat next to me and engagingly introduced herself. We chatted; she was impressed I was "an author." She managed to work into the convo that she was a Republican and a Christian, to which I responded with affable neutrality.



    The drinks cart came, she asked for Crown Royal, but they didn't have any. So the flight att. gave her two Canadian Clubs for the price of one. She drank both and got utterly smashed, and ended up leaning her pretty little head on my shoulder to take a nap. I never thought such a thing would happen to me and no, I didn't think of it as "getting head" until just now.



    The lady to my other side, a nurse (and a liberal) watched with concern as the belle banged and stumbled her way up the aisle as we deplaned, and moved forward to help her. Not me, though. The Lord helps those who help themselves, and what am I--her nanny?

    I was 11 and 12 when airline pilot worship was rampant and stewardesses were just "glorified waitresses". I had to wonder why airline pilots weren't "glorified bus drivers" by that same logic. Commercial passenger flight personnel were one of those most gender dimorphic industries of the seventies and doesn't appear to have changed much since. It's as if sexual inequality had to be established and maintained in airspace.

    When you spend your days worshipping authority and praying for some Big Daddy figure to come along and vanquish all the enemies by whom you're surrounded, you'll grasp anything that tells you that authority figures (like pilots) are secretly on your side, while the serving class (like flight attendants) are all arrayed against you.


    I'll go back to my question of weeks ago: Why to conservative fantasies always center around the installation of an authoritarian government? Is it because they cannot get rational people to buy their arguments and thus feel like their agenda MUST be imposed from above?

  52. Around the LGM and Gin & Tacos blogs is a frequent commenter going by 'Major Kong' who is a commercial pilot and it seems really did fly B-52s for the USAF.

    Here's another tectonic turn, from The Daily Tucker (Really, why even link?):
    Madison Wickham, the co-founder of the Grandex media and commerce company, has noticed through sales of the company’s conservative-oriented clothing brand, Rowdy Gentleman, that young Republicans are more energized than ever in the run-up to Election Day.

    “There is definitely overwhelming support for Mitt Romney and the GOP among our customer base,” Wickham said in an interview with The Daily Caller. “Our political product offering stems from the idea that it’s hard to find cool right-leaning t-shirts and accessories. Companies like Urban Outfitters do a great job of catering to a young liberal niche, and in the same way our political products are geared towards a youthful right-leaning niche.”

    [...]

    More topical “Romney for President” and “Mitt’s the Tits” t-shirts are also on offer.

  82. Hmm... sounds like the *Airline Stewardesses on a Plane* is the current iteration of the *Liberals at a Dinner Party* set piece wherein Conservatives crush their Liberal foes with slashing ripostes, les mots justes, and geometric logic. But if I may, I'd like to mention a scenario that Mrs. satch and I have encountered in our recent travels: a fair number of people, by way of starting a conversation, have asked us where we're from, and when we say Masachusetts, it's like an invitation to ask us who we're voting for. So far, when we say Obama, it's been about a wash on the number of people who agree with us vs the people who roll their eyes and look at us like we've sprouted a third eye. Being from MA gives us some real cache, however: we can speak with authority on how after four... er... make that about two and a half years of Romney's stewardship (before he decided he wanted to be president and basically said "See ya around, suckers", turned the keys to the governor's office over to Kerry Healy, and hit the campaign trail), Romney shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the White House.
