I love a good-looking naked man as much as the next girl, but this is one I can’t quite bring myself to appreciate. It does not matter that he is gorgeous and I want to run my fingers down his chest. What matters is that he is a Republican and therefore just not that attractive.
Everyone is talking about the fact that he posed naked, but have lost site of the fact that his seat was held by Ted Kennedy, a Democrat, since 1952. It’s sad to me that the Democrats lost the seat, and sadder still that people bought into his “I’m not an old guard Republican” rhetoric.
He tried to sell himself as a normal guy who was in touch with the people. I just don’t buy it. He is a wealthy, educated man who is married to a television personality, and is not a regular guy at all.
No other Republican ran against him in the primary, so he never had to talk about classic Republican issues. No one was given the opportunity to realize how scary he really is.
He thinks gay marriage should be decided state by state. What is that? Either you support it or you don’t, and he does not. It is not a state by state issue. It is a human rights issue and every gay person in America should have the opportunity and ability to marry.
He is against a national health care bill. He talks about his desire to strongly fight Islamic terrorism, but the points he focused on are things that our President is already doing, and what any normal person would want to support.
You can take the belief system of the Republican party and masquerade it in the body of a hot and sexy man, but if it walks like a crazy old man who is out of touch with reality, and talks like a crazy old man who is out of touch with reality, then chances are it is simply a crazy old man who is out of touch with reality.
If he poses again for Cosmo, which they have asked him to do, I won’t buy it. I really don’t care. What I care about is the fact the America is going to hell in a hand basket, one tiny step at a time. All I can do is be thankful that I never revoked my Canadian citizenship, and keep the faith.
