"She's beautiful"

Yes, some men come to ogle the candidate, too. “She’s beautiful,” said a man wearing a John Deere T-shirt in Weirs Beach. “I came here to look at her,” he said, and his admiration for Ms. Palin’s appearance became more and more animated. Sheepish over his ogling, he declined to give his real name (“Just call me ‘John Deere’ ”).

obviously, the fact that someone is "looks pretty" is a totally valid justification for giving them the power to make decisions that will affect an entire nation. i mean, if looks could kill and Palin got elected, we wouldn't have to worry about terrorists anymore. yup, shes a looker...and c'mon, who doesn't love a politician who winks!?
