PRETTY, STUPID: “THE MICHELE BACHMANN EFFECT”


I’m fully cogizant of the soft porn news for conservatives that Fox news is fond of on the website. There’s something really creepy about the oft tittilating nature of some of the stories that they cover. In all truth I could have found better things to write about but after reading this little gem at Fox Nation about a study done at UCLA whose aim was to determine which party’s female politicians looked more “feminine”.

Initially I thought this was going to be funny. Not so much now. I am really angered and upset that this was even considered as a measure of . . . what? To me it appears to be a peek into how the GOP and their voters seek out female representatives of their ideology. The gold standard for GOP women is Michele Bachmann the representative from the 6th district in the state of Minnesota. Bachmann, the UCLA study notes had facial features that were, “ranked as highly feminine.” The study goes on to say observers of the faces of women in Congress were easily identified along party lines based on how close to the “feminie norm” they appeared with the GOP members appearing closest to the norm.

When it comes to politics I’m not concerned, no strike that, I could care less what a woman looks like. Period. The positions she takes on issues that matter to me and my family are far more important than whether she has “full lips,” “the contour of her forehead,” or “the placement of cheekbones.” This sounds less like a discussion of politics than a casting call for a bukkake film.

The bottom line here is the GOP is selling something in a pretty shiny package that isn’t worth the cost. Michele Bachmann is clearly, to this writer either one of the best actresses in the history of the United States politics or she is so deluded by her religious and social beliefs that she is patently stupid. White male voters are depended upon to vote for Bachmann and the reasons are for her parroting of far Right mantras on Islam, abortion and against President Obama plus their desire to do this to her. I’d rather have Stabenow, Wasserman-Schultz, Pelosi, Clinton, Granholm, Eshoo, Boxer and their compassion, intelligence and know how than Bachmann and her “pretty face” any day.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
