Why am I being informed by some of you that one woman or another in politics is "hot"? Is this a quality you need/want in a political candidate? HTF is it that the nation can survive electing men as fugly as Strom Thurmond but all the chicks running for office need to inspire lust? Do you not see that in referring to a woman as "hot" when she isn't offering romance marginalizes her and severely marginalizes the equally (or more) qualified women who are "not hot"? If we have a future Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher in the US, you gonna ignore that talent pool because the chick doesn't wear a size 2? Grow the fuck up, guys.
