Yesterday, naked parties were all conservative pundits could think about.
Listen to Susanne LaFrankie interview the author of Pledge and Yale grad Alexandria Robbins about the phenomenon of naked parties on college campuses.
She also fields some calls from her creepy middle-aged listeners about their naked party experiences.
Also Dom Giordono discusses these parties with an anonymous student. He seems frustratingly bent on framing it as an “elite” activity, something the common man just wouldn’t do. Only the elites get naked. Look! Look! I’m a ridiculous conservative and I found yet another thing I can use to debase well-educated peoples! I get a cookie!
Also, here is the transcript for Yale student Megan Crandell’s pretty snarky appearance on Glenn Beck’s show yesterday.
CRANDELL: Well, in a sense, but more than that, there`s a lot of concern to keep it something that`s safe and comfortable for the people going.
And it seems as though the more interesting question is, why is everybody so curious about the naked parties? And I think the rest of the world is envisioning a sort of, like, the ride of the tipsy bacchanals, and I don`t think that`s really accurate.
BECK: Nobody was thinking the ride of the what? Nobody`s thinking that. Listen — OK, Yaley, pipe down for a second. Here`s the thing.
You know and I know, you know — you may not know because you`re, well, “What, sir, I`m just having a naked party because it breaks down barriers.” Every guy that`s going is not going to break down — well, yes, they are going down to break down barriers, but they`re different kinds of barriers, Megan.
CRANDELL: Do you know this? When was the last time you went to a naked party, just out of curiosity?
BECK: No, no, I don`t need to go to — Megan, excuse me. Megan, Megan…
BECK: I`m a guy. I speak for all men when we say, we live to get women naked. Period.
