Oh, For Pete's Sake.

Althose is running the same photo of Mrs. Clinton that Drudge has been highlighting.

Dry winter air doesn't do great things for anyone's skin—save maybe that of teenagers. And I still think Mrs. C. would have been better off with a face lift, vs. the botox—when she pops her eyes out to show emotion there's something creepy about it. But the state of the art is still imperfect.


Here's the deal: I understand that people are, as a general rule, idiots. But I'm still not sure that the average voter will be deciding a Presidential election on the basis of whose skin is smoothest.

I mean, what's next? Swimsuit competitions? My father would love it (particularly if he can fantasize that Condi will answer Dick Morris's call by jumping into the race to oppose Mrs. C.). But despite the flirtation of some evangelicals with the Huckabee campaign, I'd like to think that the average voter at least sees some seriousness in a Presidential election. On some level.

We need a leader with a backbone of steel . . . someone like Golda.


Now whether that person is a man or a woman has yet to be determined. But let's not shoot ourselves in the foot by using face-texture as a litmus test. That's the last thing we need right now. It wouldn't help Thompson or McCain very much.

Just a shout-out to my Democratic buddies: if you vote for Obama—or Edwards—over Mrs. C, make sure it's for the right reasons. Don't break my fucking heart.

I see no evidence of botox in that picture now have I read anything that would suggest Clinton has used botoz.

But let's not shoot ourselves in the foot by using face-texture as a litmus test.

But you know it is. And hair. Great hair = Great Presidential Material to the unwashed masses. Judging on that basis it would be Romney vs The Breck Girl this time around. Kerry got in last time because he has way more hair than Silky Pony. Volume trumps pretty, apparently.

Bravo, ma'am. I feel the same way you do.

As if my Mom wasn't filled with wisdom as well as my father. I vote for the candidate who will win against Islamic extremists, and the rest matters not atall to me. If Hillary were to be elected (not my choice, but hey), we can all rest assured that she would prosecute an attack in response to an attack on our country with great vigor and intent. After all, she has been more than willing to attack her Secret Service detail and any other men around her when she disagreed with them. What can a bunch of ragheads do that would change that?

So I care not if she looks like Rumpelstilskin or the Beast or the Wicked Witch of the West, as long as she will kick some ass when it desperately needs to be kicked. I don't like anything else about the woman, but I wouldn't fear for my family's lives if she were elected. I can't say the same about the rest of the Dhimmicratic field. (Or some of the Republicans as well).

Or what about having to see someone like Obama on the news for the next 4 years. . .the man is u.g.l.y as hell. I’d much rather see Hillary on the news for the next 4 years. Is Obama sick or something? He’s been looking malnourished lately. Somebody really should tell that gawd ugly man to eat a little more. He reminds me of one of those Egyptian mummies after they take all the wrappings off, showing leathery black skin on a skeleton.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
