No sooner had Hillary Clinton officially declared her presidential candidacy than the bigoted assholes of the religious right started spewing misogyny. Don Feder of the World Congress of Families got it started by arguing that “Hitlery” (Get it? That’s so clever!) will never be president because she’s so hideously ugly.
Think Evita after Botox treatments. Think Madame Defarge on a bad hair day. Think Lady Macbeth with serious issues (“Out, out, damned bimbo!”).
To listen to the babbling heads, you’d think the Goldwater girl-turned-Alinsky-disciple could start preparing her acceptance speech (maybe Eleanor Roosevelt will help her write it). “Ooh, she’ll raise so much money.” “Ooh, women want a woman president.” In the immortal words of General Anthony McAuliffe: “Nuts!”
Win the White House? Hillary couldn’t win a popularity contest if she was the only contestant.

10. The Hideousness Factor – Lyndon Baines Johnson was the last profoundly ugly candidate to be elected president, and he was a legacy of the martyred JFK. Voters don’t want a leader who looks frazzled or frumpy. We’re told that Lincoln was too homely to be elected president in an age of television and paparazzi. But Lincoln’s homely face had a dignity, a gravitas. If nothing else, we want a face that reassures us, not one that scares us, a la Night of the Living Alinskyites.
Don’t you love how he assumes that everyone else is a much of a sexist douchebag as he is?
