  1. You have to be alpha to run for mayor…

    • You have to be alpha to win.

      That said, he was probably a former beta who became alpha but may lose his status now.

      Huma may not divorce him–she may have something to gain by the connections. We’ll see.

      • What are his connections though?

        I always thought it was that she married him for the political connections, not the other way around.

    • Weiner and most male Democrat political leaders are alpha males. The Democrats are the party of alpha males and women. They are the ones who benefit from the welfare state. The women benefit directly and the alpha males benefit indirectly because the women can hook up with them if the women don’t need to chase after a beta male provider because they are already getting economic resources from the government. Alpha player types going back to Hugh Hefner in the fifties have realized that liberalism benefits them and become liberal Democrats. Women vote for liberal alpha males (The Kennedys, Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Weiner etc.) to get them into office so they can take money away from beta males and hand it over to the women.

      • Mark’s analysis is spot on here. And what’s the typical Democrat sneer against the Republicans, especially College Republicans? that they’re the party of George Will-type beta male uncool “losers”. Republicans are “angry white males”, traditional American beta providers angry at having their money stolen and their women pump-and-dumped by the Democrat welfare state/alpha male industrial complex. Mitt Romney was a fitting representative of these Republican beta providers, who, in the Democrats’ view, are supposed to be super-polite to everyone, work 80 hours a week to pay their taxes and child-support payments, and otherwise SHUT UP!!

        Weiner married Huma for career advancement: to get close to the Clintons, and because a politician needs a wife (or at least it’s still highly helpful). Huma, on the other hand, married Weiner for love: because chicks dig sociopathic jerks. Weiner sending dick pics to every bar skank he can find online may actually be a turn on for Huma: enough of a “neg” to get her tingling, but not actual “cheating” as such.

      • Shades of Whiskey in this post! But yes, a large component of post-60s modern liberalism is to liberating women from the necessary strictures of civilization so they can indulge their jungle instincts in the mating game. The cad/alpha male has ALWAYS known this as they have been the biggest beneficiary.

        The sexual revolution meant less marriage and a lot more sex for women and a lot LOT more sex for cads and power players; while the honest/average/everyman of various stripes gets much less.

      • “The Democrats are the party of alpha males and women.” — mark

        Liberal men tend to be wimpy and physically weak. That’s not alpha.

        http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2325414/Men-physically-strong-likely-right-wing-political-views.html

        Liberal women tend to be fairly masculine. Though I’m not sure whether that’s alpha or just butch.

        http://newsroom.ucla.edu/portal/ucla/the-gop-has-a-feminine-face-finds-238867.aspx

        These studies kind of explain why liberals are so into gender bending. They’ve pretty much swapped roles. haha

        A few Dem leaders are alpha. That’s what you’d expect because leaders tend to be more alpha. But a lot of Dem leaders are still wimpy. And a lot of the rank and file Dems are just pitiful. Trade unionists are an exception but they’re only Dems because of the union. They don’t really fit with the rest of the ideology.

      • He meant that Democratic POLITICIANS are alpha males, like Bill Clinton. The Republicans have people like Ron Paul who’s no alpha male.

        At least that was the point. You can probably find alpha Republicans and weird looking Democrats like Dennis Kucinich (who actually had a pretty hot young wife).

      • GOP pols are more alpha. Compare Rick Perry or Sen John Thune to Jerry Brown or the vaguely pedophile-ish Harry Reid.

      • He meant that Democratic POLITICIANS are alpha males,

        He also discussed voters. He said the democratic party was primarily women and alpha males, gave a justification for alpha males to vote democratic and gave an example of a non political leader alpha who does (hefner). This line of argument clearly has an emotional appeal to many people here who accept it unthinkingly but then destructure gave an actual piece of (somewhat – it is the daily mail) factual evidence contradicting the argument.

      • Republican Alphas probably tend to go into business or sports. Maybe that’s why Republican politicians are becoming increasingly creepy and beta-ish. Democratic Alphas go into entertainment, or politics. Clinton is an Alpha among Alphas though – there’s no major politican in either party close to his level. Is Romney more beta than Kerry or Gore? Not really. GW Bush was actually very Alpha, and one of the best politicans at using negs to assert his dominance over his underlings, journalists, etc. Dubya is probably the closest to the “chateau” model of an Alpha – overconfident, decisive, not very empathetic, easily bored, etc.

  2. He’s apparently 6’5. That’s very tall, even for a member of the upper class, and not tall enough to make him a freak. He could probably do well for himself without ever doing the creepy online stuff.

    • I question that. I just image searched him and in the few pictures I was able to find of him standing next to people, he doesn’t seem to tower over anyone. Usually, any man taller than about 6’2″ is going to appear much taller than random other people standing near him in pictures.

      • Huma is slightly shorter than Hillary in photographs (let’s assume they both wear heels of similar height), and Weiner is barely taller than Huma in their wedding photos. Even assuming a 3 inch heel on Huma, this puts Weiner nowhere near 6’5″?

      • I’m not a New Yorker so I don’t know, but I’m guessing attractive women work for the Weiner campaign to get proximity to the actual alphas in the NY political scene. Guy is built like Ichabod Crane, awkward body language, and a devious, petulant personality. So naturally, he ends up with a gawky Indian/Paki wife and sexting with homely prole gals.

        IIRC he was a protege of Chuck Schumer, who strikes me as the kind of guy who’s not going to surround himself with anybody smarter or tougher. Weiner inherited Schumer’s safe, Jewish congressional district and managed to hold on to it for 10+ years. I guess he got bored and started sexting.

        Bottom line, not alpha.

  11. Weiner is without question alpha, and much more so than most politicians. Most politicians, even the famous and highly charismatic ones, get hitched with utter dogs. then they have affairs with utter dogs (thinking of john edwards here in particular). Weiner was single (a player) into his early 40s, until he married Huma, 12 years his junior and about as attractive as a woman in politics can be.

    JM

    July 31, 2013 at 12:18 PM

    • You can be single into your 40s without being an alpha or a player. But I would think all elected politicians are alphas in the traditional (leader of men) sense, if not in the Heartiste sense of the word.

      Weiner is a different animal though. There’s an interesting subtext here that I haven’t seen a blogger cover. A commenter above makes the old point about how the left lets women replace husbands with government. But why hasn’t anyone connected the dots between that and Weiner’s cyber-affairs?

      In his talk show appearances as a liberal firebrand railing against teh evil Republicans, Weiner was lefty politics personified as a passionate (if a little gawky) man. This is what lefty women online found attractive about him (that plus the general attraction if being semi-famous). Weiner, operating on the visual level of nude pics, seems to have been oblivious to this.

      That obliviousness (and that he might have considered buying a condi for a woman he never met) suggests he doesn’t know a lot about women, so I’m guessing he wasn’t much if a ladies man in RL before he got married.

  12. He’s an ‘alpha’ for as long as he continues to be in the spotlight and has hot interns working for him. I don’t know how he would do outside his political comfort zone, but the qualifying traits of any ‘alpha’ is the ability to attract good looking members of the opposite sex.

    Hugh Hefner = Alpha
    Religious cult leaders = Alpha

    There’s no physical traits that define an alpha, just that he has the ability to pull hot women, at least that’s what I’ve been able to gather. Whoever has the hot women automatically gets the respect/envy of other males. QED.

  13. “Babes”, Lion? Really? I’ve been reading your blog(s) for a while, and I have to say you have an interesting attractiveness standard. I say this because for Barbara Morgan, most men her age who are successful and well off wouldn’t even consider Morgan as a potential prospect. They’d mostly certain choose someone alot younger…like Olivia Nuzzi. That being said she is kinda cute in a Tea Leoni early-2000’s way.

    • Most of the successful men I know picked slightly better than average looking women for wives, as opposed to stunners. A Barbara Morgan is entirely proper as the wife of such a man. But, perhaps that is because most of the successful men I know are betas not alphas. No doubt the super successful men are alphas, but I imagine the bulk of successful men are betas. What is your threshold for defining success?

    The last girl he sexted didn’t seem to be particularly dazzled by him. It sounded like it was political outreach to her. Contrast that to Bill Clinton, a real alpha. Monica still has not gotten over him.

  15. I would say he’s both a nerd and an alpha, and I support him 100%. I like that he and his wife are not overly ethnocentric (despite being Jewish, he married to woman who could pass for Palestinian – great example for peace in the middle east! They should be in the white house!) I’m also furious at the hypocrisy of the clintons now trying to run them out of public life because because they remind people of Clinton’s sex addictions.

  18. The term alpha male, as used by Heartiste, is culturally based and has no absolute meaning. In ancient India, the heads of society were the brahmanas. They had authority over kings. And they had a lot of what we would consider effeminate qualities. But proponents of evo psych like to skip over all of recorded history and go straight to some imagined past (with no recorded observations) to bolster their ideas. Heartiste and his lackeys may cherry pick examples like Genghis Khan, but he didn’t come from an advanced civilization. He was a barbaric nomad. That is not the kind of society we want to emulate.

    Heartiste claims that the alpha male is the one who has sex with the most women, or could. But in another society and time the definition would have been completely different. So the usage of the term alpha male is basically an attempt to validate the worldview of the wielder more than anything else. There is no straight alpha male and beta male in the human species the way there is among wolves. What we refer to as alpha and beta is mostly based on current sick American culture.

    And yes, it is useful to use alpha bullshit when dealing with stupid Americans. I use it myself when it’s expedient. But to try to break down all of humanity into two basic categories is beyond retarded. Only stupid people who aren’t interested in truth need to break down reality into simplistic categories to make it easier for them to understand.

    • Good point. I have previously mentioned that some of the male vampire characters women lust over are effeminate. And teen girls almost invariably fixate on girly/ gay looking guys, justin beiber etc.. Many women are wooed by traits that might appear beta in the simplistic sense like being artsy or sensitive. Maybe weiner is a good listener.

      They’re just conflating two definitons of alpha. They introduced the term alpha to describe human men who women like a lot and then confuse that with the existing definition of alpha and conclude that women like men who occupy the same social position and display the same behaviors as an alpha animal . Which as you pointed out doesn’t mean much of anything because animal behavior differ so much from one another and humans.

      Religion has always served as a “constitution” that restrained even kings. Ancient India may have been highly effeminate but you forgot to mention the warlike patriarchy that conquered, looted, enslaved, and nearly eradicated Hinduism in later eras. You’d probably be in some harem right now had you been alive then. You may not like it but everything is subordinate to force.

  19. Yes, Weiner is an alpha male, although not necessarily an admirable man. Chicks flocked to him, and the most desirable chicks, the ones in the 18-26 age category, continue to flock to him, despite his obvious character flaws, his ugliness, and his disregard for anything remotely feminist in his real life daily habits and hobbies.

    You see, Lion of the Faux Mystified, chicks dig dark triad jerks:

    http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2011/08/16/chicks-dig-jerks-more-scientific-evidence/

    Weiner, being a Class A sociopath with narcissistic delusions, is about as darkly triadic as they come. And, what you see from that fact of his personality is what we have here: A veritable harem of glorified hottie hostesses clamoring to be Weiner’s number one confidant.

    It is the way of the world and the only solution, if a real solution is what you seek, is to strip unmarried women under the age of 26 of any voting rights. Otherwise, this off-tune beat will go on until the whole show comes to a cacophonous end. As it appears to be doing right now, in front of our eyes…

    • Let’s say sociopaths are attractive to women. Alphaness is just a term that could mean many things.

      Dwight D Eisenhower was an Alpha president, but he wasn’t the sociopathic type like Kennedy or Clinton. Eisenhower wouldn’t as popular with the ladies as the other two.

      August 1, 2013 at 10:59 AM

      • I think there are two ways to be “alpha.” The first is to be a leader of men, the second is to be a seducer of women. Look at the Iliad, and compare Hector with Paris. Who was more alpha? Hector led troops into battle, was fiercely loyal to his homeland and was feared and respected by his foes. Meanwhile, Paris was making love to the world’s most beautiful woman.

        Rightists tend to admire leaders of men, like Hector and Eisenhower, both of whom seemed to love their families while annihilating hordes of their country’s enemies. In contrast, leftists sympathize with seducers of women, like Paris and Clinton, who are sexually successful with women and then claim that cheating or cuckolding someone isn’t as bad as killing.

        (There are plenty of alphas who are both, however, such as Admiral Yamamoto and Genghis Khan.)

        August 2, 2013 at 5:29 AM

      • Sid ninja’d me with an excellent example from Homer, although I take issue with Clinton as Casanova. While he has pure lady-killer skills, he still relies on his social status derived from winning elections. (One can argue he wins elections because he’s charming, but the state power is inseparable.)

        Here’s what I had originally written:
        There are a number of ways of achieving social status, but it’s silly to say anyone possessing such status is “alpha” in the sense that lots of females want to have sex with him. If anything, alpha generally means “leader of men” and Eisenhower surely fits that category. The sexy loner bad boy does not. Robert Pattinson surely does not (at least Bieber apparently has a crew). A coach is more alpha than a quarterback, but that doesn’t necessarily translate into more tail.

  21. A. Weiner is obviously a prole. It’s genetic. He is compelled to be a prole even though he pathetically strives for higher status.

  22. So is an alpha male just a man who isn’t afraid of women?

  23. Is Weiner an alpha male?

    He’s smart, aggressive and previously successful which says alpha. He’s also an idiot, a creep and one ugly sumbitch which says gamma. There’s no reconciling the two halves. Now that he’s disgraced the truth is evident. He’s no alpha.

  26. The alpha, beta, omegas thing is especially ridiculous when “alphas” are likely to climb the corporate ladder while “omegas” start businesses.

    Women like me who aren’t wimps, but men like women who aren’t wimps too. Man or woman, people most want what they can’t have. Knowing someone hates you is a turn on. I learned that in the 8th grade. “Won’t you please, please, pretty please let me f— you?” doesn’t work, obviously.

    Just treat women like gay men and you’ll be an alpha.

    • And how are guys like Jobs, Gates, and Ellison Omegas, all who started their own businesses? Ellison is probably more Alpha than Jobs and Gates in looks and with his lifestyle.

      Your observation is not entirely correct.

    • As a business owner myself I know quite a few other business owners. Some are alpha, some lean sigma and some are hard to pigeonhole. The only thing I’d say they all have in common is that they’re all independent, mentally tough and competent. The ones who aren’t end up quitting and working for someone else.

      • Successful business owners have to be alpha or else they wouldn’t be in business. It’s much easier to be a sociopathic bully who climbs the corporate ladder.

  27. My theory is that some men are just better at identifying malleable women than others and that this explains differences in sexual conquests. Sex and child predators describe an innate ability to target “good” victims so there are probably non-predatory men who can do the same thing in a consensual sex or dating context. I don’t think it has much to do with aggression or dominance. In the biographical “City of God” the ruthless drug kingpin is consistently jilted by the woman he wants.

    Men with power or status might appear to have better access to women, but in those situation the women are using the men (for status climbing or financial gain), not vice versa.

  28. Not an alpha.

    1. What kind of alpha sexts instead of having sex?
    2. Read the sext transcripts, Wiener was doing all the work, trying too hard. The girls seemed bored of him
    3. What kind of alpha has anything to do with tattooed up land whales?
    4. Sydney Leathers says he commented on the changes she would make to her Facebook page. Thats stalkerish, would an alpha even care about this?

    Wiener had all of the appearances of alpha, such as pre selection (he was on TV all the time during the Obamacare debate), a pretty younger wife, bravado confidence (he was usually screaming and calling ppl hitler on TV), as well as fame and success. However it was all phony. He was gifted his seat at a young age, so he doesn’t really have life experience or success out of politics, huma is (rumored) to be a lesbian in a political Mairrage, and even the TV image was manufactured (Weiners willingness as a Congressman to call Republicans hitler was crack to MSNBC).

    Weiner is a high school/college debate nerd who parlayed good connections in his district with Tribal voters into fame and power at a very young age. Good for him, but he was bound to be exposed someday.

    As the transcript shows, he was,years into the game, blowing his chances to bang fame & power obsessed groupies.

      • Sociopath behavior gets you ahead although I wouldn’t exactly use that term but it does seem nature prefers men to be a certain way. Life being one unending competition where sentimentality and empathy have no place except among the naive and vanquished.

      • @islandmommy
        “I’ve never understood the groupies jailed men attract… richard ramirez, ted bundy, etc.. It’s a long list and defies logic.”

        Bundy was genuinely handsome and Ramirez looked pretty good in his 20s. Very few ugly notorious criminals attract the hot fans that people like Bundy or Ramirez did, although most of them are getting offers from people who technically qualify as female. Many women find men who are willing to give the whole world the middle finger attractive, and there’s no better way to say to say ‘f*** you’ to society than to kill a bunch of people and then smile and look defiant and cool in court after your arrest.

        Ted Bundy managed to conceive a child (a daughter, actually) while he was on death row, but he’s an exception. If you’re reading this and you’re having trouble with chicks, I wouldn’t recommend becoming a serial killer unless you’ve exhausted all of your other options.

        August 1, 2013 at 5:53 PM

      • Oh yeah, Bundy impregnated that woman while he was on death row with the help of Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth, who co-authored (co-authored = typed and edited Bundy’s verbal third person account of his crimes) ‘The Only Living Witness.’ If you’re interested in true crime, it’s a much better than average read.

      • Jason Burkett also managed to father a child from behind bars, via smuggled sperm.

        Maybe you’re right about the ugly criminals. I wonder if Kaczynski has a penpal harem.

      • “Why are women attracted to sociopaths, if sociopaths tend to be so self-destructive and dysfunctional? Do they have more potent sperm or something? Stronger offspring?”

        Sociopaths especially good looking ones usually come off as charming, confident and self assured. Qualities that women find attractive.

    • You’re exactly right. The majority of his sexting partners took him for a joke and don’t paint a flattering picture of him.

      A lot of his sexting partners were interested in Democratic politics and liked something he posted to Facebook (including Ginger Lee) then he would stalk them down and start the sexting. Hardly “alpha” behavior.

    best comment on that article

    You guys have no clue what is going on here. Don’t make this a racial issue when it isn’t. The Normandy School district had multiple other school districts they could have chosen for kids to transfer to – schools that were MUCH closer then the FHSD. This transfer will mean a 45 – 60 minute bus ride each way. Busses will get stuck in traffic jams – meaning school will be disrupted with late arrivals. It is like they chose FH for a reason – far away so the kids are out of the house longer? These unaccredited schools must pay $12k tuition per student per year – on top of $ for transport. HOW IS TAKING THAT MUCH $ OUT OF THE BAD DISTRICT GOING TO FIX IT?
    This wasn’t mentioned – Normandy is the most dangerous school in the whole area. Search STL Today. Our schools don’t have metal detectors – and most have only one resource officer. We are not equipped to handle the problems that will come with transfers.
    Our school district has been built and maintained with our tax $. We have good schools because we have parents and taxpayers who care. We should not be forced to take somebody else’s problems just because they are too lazy and careless to fix their own. Want better schools? Either get involved as a parent and/or taxpayer and fix yours – or move to where they are better. Then you have a vested interest. This whole situation is typical of the malady afflicting our country these days – too lazy to fix your own issues – just dump them on someone else, or blame someone else….

    • As always the failing school spends more per pupil than state average, and teacher & administrator salaries were higher, yet there are still comments about “unequal funding.” The successful school the kids are being shipped to spends 20% less per student yet has test scores 3X higher than the failing school.

  32. Weiner is a neurotic, crafty, cunning BETA. All his desire for power and sexting is a symptom of trying to overcompensate for his deep seated insecurities about being a horny skinny guy named Weiner.
    This is Weiner in a nut shell. I work as a barrister so I know alpha very well. Don’t make me laugh. Weiner is alpha only in his dreams!
