    I think that several comments went to far into personal attacks and name calling.  I'll HR those all day long.  But I agree that a comment about physical appearance isn't on face HR-able.  I just don't know where the line is, and where it should be.

    I know that several of the comments above seem juvenile, but not purile. And when some puts sex and appearance into their political persona, commenting on it like a human being and not a robot set to "polite" is fine.

    I laugh when John Stewart does his Cheney as Penguin impression, and I don't feel to bad about that.  Even if the joke is based on Cheney's looks and demeanor. I refer to the Speaker of the House as John of Orange, and that's manifestly based upon appearance.

    So I agree that people don't have to ignore Bristol's outward appearance, she's thrust herself into the spotlight in several ways. But I don't think that I'd want to discuss the political implications of fake non-profits with Beavis and Butthead.  Daria and Jane, sure.

    So maybe we need to keep the comments on appearance and superficiality to a Daria standard?
