Ladies And Gentlemen, Contestant Number 8!

You know, one of the e-mail forwards I get in various incarnations from my conservative friends and relations is one that shows how all conservative women are pretty and all liberal women are unattractive.

Aside from the irrelevance of beauty to suitability to run for office, I might also point out that some of the folks who are forwarding these slams against Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bella Abzug for their non-Glamour pusses wouldn't exactly themselves set a teenager's heart aflutter.

That said, there's nothing more fun than noticing that film is available of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin's turn in the 1984 Miss Alaska contest. Now I get why the kids like the You Tube.
