What if Palin and Bachmann weren't hot? What if they didn't look the way they do? Would they still get the support, have the political appeal? Put on them, the face and body of Archie Bunker's wife Edith, and think to yourself...how would you judge their statements if such were the case? Curious question.
Nobody wants to wander into the waters? They wouldn't be on any news reports whatsoever is the answer to this question. If they were not hot, they would just be the backwoods tards we see spouting some of the most ridiculous statements we've ever seen. Instead, they are hot...so we pay attention as if they aren't actual ignorant psychos.
Selection of Archie Bunker is quite apt, I think.
Although not Edith, but Archie himself.
Imagine the same words coming out of HIS mouth.
You are absolutely right.
Is Michelle Bachmann hot? She is attractive (in the Tea Party female mold) but hot? I haven't heard her called that...
Palin, on the other hand, is selling her sexuality.
I suppose some would (and will) argue that she is countering the Obama charisma with her own down-home Alaska way.
So yes, I wholeheartedly agree with you that the ONLY reason people pay any attention to either of them is because of the package.
In the eyes of the media, it's the fact that each has become a parody of herself.
Hard to believe there really are American citizens out there who give any credence to what either one of these faux bimbos says.
BTW, did you know that Planned Parenthood is trafficking in young girls? Guess who I learned that tidbit from. I've give you 50/50 odds of guessing correctly (hint: her name is in the thread title) ...
Really, if they were liberals they would still get air time especially if they were a witch faced, witch voiced, humorless harridan and cuckold like Hillary.
I'll take one Hilary over 10 if those other 2 twerps.
Only other person who fits the twerp label is Shawn Hannity.
Twick and Twack.
Twerple Dum and Twerple Dee.
Twertipated Twerp sisters.
Twertipation on Parade: Bachmann-Palin-Overdrive!

If it wasn't so funny--you'd have to cry at the inanity.
You mean the great supporter of Bashir Al Assad? He's a reformer. Hillary is just being played for the fool by another president but that is her role in life, presidential cuckold and fool, Hillary.
She's no fool.
She'd spin Palin and Bachmann in 2. Or 4, as the case may be....with one side of her brain tied behind her back. Those 2 twerps wouldn't know what hit them.
Oh god--then we'd have to hear those screechy voices screaming for their husbands....
Omg--talk about torture.
Hillary has tripped over herself every time she speaks about problems in the Middle East, not so smart. Her characterization of Bashir Al-Assad as a reformer makes her a fool.
How do you think she compares to Palin and Bachman? I'm not a big fan of Hillary, but she's no fool. Her biggest mistake was to be misled by the foreign policy establishment and the Bush administration to vote for Bush's foolish, costly invasion of Iraq. Also, she's a calculating political animal.
I think I have said it many times and I will reiterate. We are finished as a free and prosperous people. I don't care who is nominated in 2012 - we are finished.
Your question is absurd...
....Edith was frickin' hot!!!
I still have her poster.
Would Palin would still be a dingbat if you put Edith Bunker's face on her??
They are what the media gives you. They don't give you anyone who would rock the boat.
"What's black and white and read all over?"

Well I think Hilary Clinton does have genuine political abilities and instead of running against Barack Obama Hilary Clinton should have been Obama's running mate and eventually Vice President of the United States.
Maybe we should think about who will actually fix this broken country instead of the next first, like a woman president.If they can do it great,but if they can't I have to ask this,,,"Are you stupid" Every 4 years we hope for the same thing and get the same thing,,,more business as usual.
Not any more. The whole world knows what we are all about, even if we don't.
There will be no more business as usual. That time is over. That's why the Twerps are Toast.

Let's face it "Hilary for President" gets the Republican base buzzing like no other. We all know that the Benghazi Committee's specific purpose is to go after her and rip her competency to shreds.Then there is the big, bogus email fraud sting. I can see that she is a strong person and a...
