        Wait, Nick, are you trying to tell me Maddow is a woman? I never would have guessed that in a million years. Next you'll be trying to tell me that Napolitano dude over at Homeland Security is a woman as well.

    Beauty or the lack there of is in the eye of the beholder. My answer would be no. This is just another no body trying to make a name for himself.

    Besides my ex-wife got everything else. She doesn't need Affirmative Action Protection just because she's ugly as well.

    I am totally perplexed at this question.   Affirmative action is for verifiable groups i.e. ethnic/ racial groups, religious minorities,  LGBT groups, and other minority groups such as the disabled and the aged who had a history of discrimination and differential treatment because of their status in society.   So-called "ugly" people do not count because the world "ugly" is a very subjective word and the definition varies from person to person and from culture to culture.

    Some may be just plain ugly on the inside. You would have to interview.

    I think we should care for the facially challenged.

    Since politics is little more than acting for ugly people, I think all of Washington might empathize and be receptive to the idea
