It's not sexy to talk about Hillary's wrinkles.

ssssmashing: tweekster: Kill it, with fire.

You'll only make it angry. You'll never find a fire to match the heat where she comes from.


I should probably toss in there, "I was kidding" for humorless secret service agents, just in case

tweekster: Adman12: It is sexist, because we discuss the sexual attractiveness of female politicians much more than we analyze the looks of the men.

This is unavoidable, however, and will continue as long as humans walk the planet. It's just the way we are.

moops: i find it hilarious that a man who failed at marriage THREE TIMES thinks he has credibility when talking about women.

What the holy fark does that have to do with his statement?

Definitely sexist...

/Just like it's sexist to point out the obvious flaws in her political issues...
//In fact, anyone not agreeing with everything she says or does is a sexist pig...

I've heard of this disorder. Instead of adding wrinkles to your brain, they are added to your face. She will be senile within 2 years.

Nah, wrinkled people have every right to be president, if they are men. Women should be making me pe-can pies and lapping at my balls like kittens under a cow udder.
 
2007-12-19 04:04:32 PM  
Everybody's being judged on looks these days anyways. Even more so than back in the 60's, when they first brought out the televised debate. Nixon look ill and haggard even though he was in much better shape than JFK, who actually was ill and probably hepped up on speed to keep going.

They're going to go on about how Hillary looks like an old bag and Kucinich is short and Obama has such nice teeth and works out. Like it bloody matters in regards how good a leader they are. Is Obama going to solve an economic problem by biting and punching it to death? Will Kucinich perhaps bring peace to the Middle East by winning a limbo competition? Will Hillary bring the nation together with a pole dancing routine?

Perhaps I've said too much...
 
2007-12-19 04:05:04 PM  
No.
It shouldn't matter
In fact, it doesn't matter.

Issues. Problems with solutions. That would be nice.

The way this is going, maybe we should just have the debates on E!

Judging from danlpoon's posting history, I don't believe there is a woman alive he wouldnt put his dick into. The alive qualifier probably doesnt even matter much.

Of course it's sexist! Until they start discussing every candidate's wrinkles- and they won't- it's sexist as hell.

Wrinkles just come from smiling and laughing a lot, right?

So a wrinkly person is a happy person, right?

And being happy is a GOOD thing, right??

And in the end, why does it even matter how wrinkly a candidate is, unless he/she is a sharpei???

/trying not to think about how much saggier my face skin gets every time I laugh...

Thanks to the label maker at work all the Hilli-haters I know have bumpers adorned with 'Hillary Clinton is a MILF'. Well, except the ones who lean twoard sex with sheep. (I fark ewe)

No...not sexist.

Brodan: It ain't a beauty contest people.

Of course it is. Or at least it essentially has been for about the last 40 years. While most of the recent Presidents may not look like Brad Pitt, they all are at least of average height and looks, and usually are taller and fairly attractive (given their ages when elected).

John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both Bushes, all were taller, fairly good-looking guys--at least when they were younger (and that's what really counts, because a person's ambitions, self-image, and self-confidence are formed when young).

The other less attractive Presidents--Nixon, Johnson, Ford--were all tall, which is just as good as being good-looking when it comes to creating social self-confidence, and of course, being tall is almost essential to being elected to high office in the U.S.

Carter was the most average guy, both in height and looks. And that may have been part of his appeal, because the American people wanted an ordinary guy after the whole Nixon debacle.

If you don't think looks count, ask yourself whether Dennis Kucinich could ever really be elected President. Forget his ideas or platform; even if he had sound experience and his ideas weren't so loony, his height and appearance will always keep him from the Oval Office. In fact his appearance is one reason why he's sort of considered a joke by most people.

There's the liberal media for you, with its in depth coverage of what Drudge and Limbaugh are doing this week.

Tune in next week when they'll be chatting about O'Reilly as well.

walnuts55: Hillary is just EVIL

Have you ever seen the movie 'Election' ?

I bet that was Hillary in high school. Not really evil, just warped.
 
2007-12-19 04:20:58 PM  
duh. if I started bashing Ronald Reagan because he had a turkey neck or something, people would think I'm insulting him for judging him based on such a superficial measurement.

Anyone who doesn't think it's sexist to quibble about her waning facial "beauty" needs to grow up.

/as I'm typing this I'm seriously thinking about how much of a non-issue this is anyway, so any anger in my post is an absolutely feigned attempt to keep myself awake at 4:30pm.

Harvey Manfrenjensenjen's Political Playbook
Chapter 7: Physical Appearance - Women


1. Comments, jokes, insults, etc. about women on the opposite side of the political fence as you are witty, insightful, relevant and represent a brave display of free speech. Examples include "Ann Coulter is a man!", "Hillary has wrinkles and fat calves!" and multiple variants.

2. Comments, jokes, insults, etc. about women on the same side of the political fence as you are childish, sexist, divert attention from the real issues, and reveal a fear and hatred of strong women. Examples include, "Ann Coulter is a man!" "Hillary has wrinkles and fat calves!" and multiple variants.

gah, seriously!
It is a disgrace how we judge one candidate against the other. I know I'm not the only one here to see just how close we are to making the fictional "Idiocracy" into reality.

After people get bored with the debates running on E!, they'll simply condense every political ad to five-second blips to be shown during the commercial breaks for "Ow! My Balls!"

sexist or not, we need to farking focus on what really matters.

If I was the Republicans, I wouldn't go there. Most of their top-tier candidates are cancer victims and they look it.

No. I'm dead serious. I'd give her a free ride on the PoonCoaster. I bet she's a hoot on top. She'd probably punch you in the face during her orgasm.

Someone please provide eye bleach by posting more pics of the Ukrainian PM!!!

r-u-n-n o-f-t: Yes, discussing Her wrinkles is sexist, as is talking about Her cellulite.

You, uh, have a bigger picture of that, that doesn't move? I'm asking...uhhh...for someone else...yeah.

/I hate per politics, but I'd hit that...
 
2007-12-19 04:29:41 PM  
Hillary is ugly as hell. And a disappointment politically.

And I'd vote for her -- hell, I'd vote for a bag of dirt if necessary -- over any Repugnican.
 
2007-12-19 04:30:49 PM  
Guliani is bald.
Edwards likes his hair too much...vain.
Kucinich sees aliens.
Thompson is a movie star.
McCain is too old.
Obama is black...and mooslim.
Hillary has wrinkles.
Someone is a mormon and someone is a Fundie Christian.

I think its all fair...don't you?

Afternoon_Delight: FTFA: Said Dowd: "When men want to put down a powerful woman in a sexist way, they will say she's a hag or a nag or a witch or angry or hysterical.... some conservative pundits who disagree with a woman on matters of policy jump straight into an attack on the woman's looks or personal life...


Oh, that's just priceless.

Do the names Linda Tripp, Katherine Harris or Ann Coulter ring a bell?


What a smug, arrogant hypocrite...


Huh? "Conservative pundits" can't be female? I don't get it. When you say "smug, arrogant hypocrite" are you talking about yourself?

Cyberluddite: It's perfectly acceptable to make comments only about the sole woman in the race's appearance, but only because every single man in the race is a young, handsome, stud, and there is no way anyone could criticize their appearance without looking foolish. For example, you don't hear negative comments about this guy's appearance because he's obviously an Adonis--he's even a movie star, in fact:

Damnit, Fred needs to put those pounds back on. He looks like beef curtains now that he's leaner.

And it's fine to talk about Hillary's appearance. However, if you vote based on it, then you fail at life.

And I have to think that she looks damned presidential in rocinante721's pic. To bad she's an amoral authoritarian panderer.

Gobama!
