go upright and vital and speak the rude truth in all ways
I have the same need. I started early, making fun of her shoes. But then again, there's a whole article about her hair in the NY Times this weekend. I think she's just asking for it.
I wonder why the necessity for making fun of her looks?
Vasca, I think it's because we're all so trained to think of women as female bodies--implicitly or explicitly. hence the impulse to critique female public leaders on dress, hair, appearance so much more often than male counterparts. hence my confession: still in need of exorcising the demon of sexism in my own impulses.
I must have more of an egalitarian mean streak - so far I've made fun of McCain's lopsided cheeks, Obama's ears, Biden's comb-over, and Palin's hair. And I compared Cindy McCain to lizard. But to be fair, the lighting was bad and I didn't know who she was at the time. Haven't made fun of Michelle yet - there's just nothing wrong with that woman.
Just to be fair, I make fun of everyone's shoes. Everyone.
Good...for the most part, shoes are very "not attractive"...but necessary. I hadn't noticed Michelle, Cindy or Sarah's shoes. Personally, I think all three of them look good...hair and all.
