  •  Martha Blackburn's role is to go on the Sunday AM (8+ / 0-)

    shows and apologize for various male GOOPs to the public, which you can't do without lying and talking over others.

    Frankly, the Republican Ladies  have been given a pass for
    too long.
    They deserve their own spotlight.

    •  Marsha Blackburn "apologizes" with (7+ / 0-)

      word salad that would make Sarah Palin blush.  Either that or she just lies, telling the public one of her numbskull Republican fellows has apologized when he hasn't and has no intention of doing so.

      Is her role to provide cover for her male GOP colleagues but I firmly believe she is also there for her looks too.  Notice how almost all of the rightwing bobbleheads like her or Bachmann or Sister Grifter from Alaska are objectively attractive.  

      I know there is a double standard universally for women versus men and that women are held to a much higher standard in this arena, but it sure seems save for a few examples I will leave out for civility, like one can't be a GOP female politician without being attractive.  

      I think there is less of an emphasis of this on the Democratic side, since once again for civility's sake I will refrain from naming names, but Democrats are more likely to elect a less than handsome woman.
