  •  Republicans like appearance over substance (12+ / 0-)

    on a whole lot of issues.  I recall the comparative photo collections that show a bunch of Republican women contrasted with Democratic women.  The Republicans are almost exclusively white (with Condelezza Rice and Michele Malkin being the usual exceptions) and they're dressed nicely, made up well and they're shown in favorable lights.  The Democratic women are made to appear ugly in attire, in photos (some show them at protests so they're shouting and appearing angry instead of soft and submissive) and they're generally not the standards of attractiveness embodied by "Miss America".  

    All that belies their hearts.  The Republican heart is black, bitter and cruel and they've gotten where they are, for the most part, by crawling over the battered, beaten bodies of their opponents, having survived mean spirited fights that make "Heathers" seem like a quaint instruction manual.  The ones that survive on the Republican side also generally do so because they're supported by Republican men who see them only for their physical appearance and their willingness to do what it takes (including making them fell like young men again) to climb to the top.

    The Democratic women I've seen pictured are survivors of battles, yes, but they're not fighting for their own glory and power, but for all of women, all of their race, all of the people of the United States rather than a tiny fraction of the rich and powerful.  Their hearts are worn on their sleeves and they're putting out so much energy to help the whole country be a better place to live for everyone.

    These pictures are meant to show that the Republicans are the party of the beautiful people, and don't you want to help them win vs the evil harpies of the Democratic party?  What I see in those pictures are a bunch of people who represent their party - and I say I'd much rather have lunch with any of the Democrats than be in the same zip code as one of the Republicans.
