    is, for me, insufferable, I don’t find his face handsome at all.

    I find it angry, aggressive and he reminds me a little of little Eddy on the Munsters, with the pronounced widows peak of a hairline.
    He also reminds me a little of Fearless Fosdick the aggressive cartoon character with the forward thrusting jaw.

    I don’t have any charity for this man.
    another narcissistic bully......

    On a brighter note -
    Thanks for your terrific diary!

      some of these people in Congress got there solely on the basis of their good looks (Rubio?).  And that it can sway an election in their favor. OTOH, as always, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and ugly on the inside cannot be overcome.

        been the point you were intending to make - that people are fooled by what they perceive as "good looks”.
        And I sensed that you refuse to be dragged into the mud of angry talk and prefer to be as fair minded towards people as possible even when they themselves are being ugly.
        I respect that :) and am not proud of myself when I lose it, lol.

        And of course you are correct wrt how easily manipulated people are especially when there are deep seated insecurities that politicians often pander to.

        When Sarah Palin was the GOP goddess I ran into a man outside of a grocery store who was raving about how beautiful she is and I got the sense that somehow her “hot” looks empowered him and his comfort over belonging to the GOP right.

        Sad really :)
