Survey Says GOP
Women Are Prettier

Daily Beast, by Allison Yarrow

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 10/7/2012 4:09:47 PM

They’re calling it the Michele Bachmann effect. And no, it’s not the Minnesota congresswoman’s crusade to ban falafel from public schools. It refers to the relationship between a woman’s politics and her face. Women politicians with “stereotypical feminine facial features” are more often Republicans, found researchers at UCLA]. And the more feminine their features, the more conservative their voting records. They also found the reverse—that women with more masculine facial features tended to be Democrats. Less gender-typical visages tracked with more liberal voting records. The correlation between face and party ideology was stronger for Republican women politicians than Democrats.

FTA:

Participants said ‘piercing eyes,’ blonde hair, and perceived plastic surgery seemed more Republican.

How do they explain Nancy Pelosi? She has the most perceived plastic surgery I've ever seen outside of those freak websites that feature the really bad stuff. And her eyes are rabid.

In other news, we know how to use shampoos, a comb and brush, and apply makeup.

We do have our shortcomings, we do not have a handle on the ammunition belt as fashion accessory. We wear sleeves as appropriate and seldom drop down and do pushups.

Is it the successful get first pick of the ladies or the pretty ladies get first pick of the men? Either way this survey should come as no surprise.

This is also the reason the population is slowly getting taller and blonder……chosen sooner, start breeding younger, more kids.

Conversely, when your prospective mate is decided by goat dowries, I can understand why some become angry with the world once the burqa is removed. Burqas prevent evolution.

I guess,when your baseline includes Rosie, Waters, Candy Crowley, Napolitano, Pelosi, Helen Thomas, Hillary, and the other Leftist dolls being mentioned, it's like conservatives are running the Indy 500 with a 499-mile head-start.

FTA: " ..dowdy suits, a serious gaze and close-cropped bobs read Democrat. Democrats interviewed said politicians who looked trustworthy or professional were Democrats, like themselves."

Yet more symbolism over substance. Dem women (both politicians and voters) are almost uniformly dummies. So I guess they figure the only way they can pretend to be smart is to look like the stereotypical librarian before the transformation, LOL!!

If you recall seeing Caroline Heldman from Occidental College on Fox News, you may remember her as a liberal with patently ridiculous arguments. At first glance, she is stunningly beautiful, but when you listen to the dopey stuff that comes out of that beautiful face, she starts to look hideously ugly.

Girls often sense at an early age whether they are attractive to the opposite sex. Those who are not will be more likely to see themselves as disrespected and less likely to be protected by males in general. A powerful government becomes the substitute dependable partner.

And this survey is actually true. I am not saying that we have a lock on all the good looking ones (the knockout Hollywood nitwit bimbos) but the left has a lock on the absolutely dog-ugly ones....Helen Thomas wodd scare s**t off a shovel for instance. Someone mentioned Bella Abzug who belonged in a haunted house right next to Pelosi. If Nancy has one more facelift she will have a goatee.

Los Angeles - A shallow 5.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area Friday causing power cuts, gas leaks and bursting water mains, and stopping rides at Disneyland. While no injuries were reported, objects fell from shelves and furniture toppled over, according to photos posted on social media, while TV pictures showed a car flipped over by a rockslide.

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas only faces bad options, from his perspective, as he heads into a White House meeting Monday with President Barack Obama. He could accept a U.S.-proposed framework for an Israeli-Palestinian partition deal, he could reject it or he could agree to extend negotiations. Here´s a look at what´s ahead. WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS EXPECT TO BE IN THE FRAMEWORK? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hasn´t presented a written proposal, but Abbas aides say they expect it to contain the following. It would endorse the Palestinian position that the border between Israel and a future Palestine would be based on Israel's 1967 frontier,

The Oakland Raiders´ offseason went from curious, probably disappointing, to a flat out debacle. Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, the team´s big free-agent acquisition at $42.5 million, failed his physical and his contract was voided. The team announced that, according to many Bay Area beat reporters. According to ESPN´s Adam Schefter, the Raiders had concerns about his shoulder. The Rams, who were Saffold´s team his first four years, had no such concerns (there are no set standards for NFL physicals) and almost immediately after the Raiders´ announcement agreed with Saffold on a five-year deal.

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

They might not ever be quite as good as you, but they’re definitely good enough to beat you as you decline. This is the way the world is supposed to work. It’s evolution in action.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

“Morning has broken, like the first morning.” Whatever your faith, if you’ve got any at all, that’s pretty much what it boils down to. The sun comes up, and we give it another shot.(snip) Stevens converted to Islam in the late 1970s, and he angered a lot of fans when he appeared to support the fatwa against novelist Salman Rushdie with comments he made in 1989. But for a kid in thrall to the kinetic power of the spinning records in his father’s hi-fi console, Stevens seemed to be living proof that popular music (he had 11 Top 40 hits in

Reclusive movie star Doris Day greeted fans with a rare smile and a wave from her balcony on Thursday as she rang in her 90th birthday. The Oscar-nominee appeared in great spirits as she made the rather regal gesture from her home in Carmel-by-the-Sea, on California´s north coast - a quiet little enclave also home to Clint Eastwood - the first time she´s been seen in public since 2008. After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as
