On Michelle and Sarah

I wonder how much airtime Michele Bachmann would get if she didn't look the way she does. In other words, good looking. I wonder how much of Sarah Palin's political appeal arises from her physical appeal. Which is appealing

I think Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is pretty. I think that Sarah Palin is pretty, too. I'm not saying they're smokin' hot babes. I'd reserve that for someone younger, like Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. If I were in my 20s, I suppose that having any corporeal thoughts at all about these women would be, as the kids say, ewwww. But from my boomer perspective, they're real lookers.

I don't remember Bella Abzug getting all this attention.
