Political Circus: Hotties in the House

Washington (CNN) - Politics is serious business, but not all of the time. From the halls of Congress to the campaign trail, there's always something that gets a laugh. Here are some of the things you might have missed.

I'm not just a pretty face!

    Is there anyone who hasn't noticed how important physical attractiveness has become to the GOP? Look at the lineup at Fox News! Look at Palin, O'Donnell, et al – all very physically attractive and clueless. Why would any woman, senior citizen, person of color, or veteran vote for a Republican candidate? Based on policy, they wouldn't unless they're completely uninformed! Then, they'll vote for some cutie who can deliver a catchy phrase. They won't care that the GOP did nothing to help homeless or PTSD veterans. Vets won't even notice that the GOP plans to turn the VA over to Halliburton. Seniors won't care if the GOP dismantles Medicare or Social Security. Nope, they just think the blonde or brunette sure is cute. How could such a handsome young man be bad for them, especially if he claims to be a Christian. The GOP must have the formula down because these groups voted against their own interests.

    The GOP needs to learn how to build it's cougar talking point parrot's so that they actually don't look crazy.

    no honey, you aren't. It's probably the only honest thing you will say while you serve your Republican leaders, big oil, big banks, and Wall Street.

    The rethugs are all about looks (orange man, big hair :(, cross-eyed glass wearing pinheads, bad toupees (KY). I am sorry but the woman in this picture (I forget her name as an up and coming rethug) looks somewhere between ugly hair half term and spooky lunatic look angle.
    bachman has had some work done and she is starting to look like Joan Rivers. She can't move her mouth!! 🙂 🙂
    I rather have someone that is not as attractive because they are less full of themselves and don't care to act for the camera instead of doing the job they were elected to do. Beauty is only skin deep and some of these people are the perfect example.

    Listen, are you really listening? That is the sound of a mothers cry seeing her children suffer. Suffer from what is what your asking. The answer- simple hunger, fear, and death. "I WANT THE BEST FOR MY CHILDREN" the mother cries, holding her hands up to God. "Lord I know you here me, I know you see, please save them" Never thinking of herself, the mother prays for her children. The weaker she gets the more they know she will no longer be with them. A silent good-bye, hugs and kisses-and she is gone. That is the story often told by third world countries, and soon that will be the story of America if you select palin as president. Please don't do it. PLEASE.

    "I'm not just a pretty face," she says, "No, I'm also vacuous, ill informed, prejudiced, will spread lies to scare the old folk, offer no real solutions, basically, I'm a real Republican!" Just what our country doesn't need any more of: a bunch of empty headed, pretty faces.
