What is it with you Republican dudes and the facade of "beauty"? This is the second such question of this irrelevant sort today...so here goes again. Beauty is as beauty does, which leaves out Sarah (vacuous empty suit) Palin, who routinely pimps out her kids for a few egomaniacal scores of media attention. The grand dame of White House media coverage, Helen Thomas, and both Elena Kagan (first woman Dean of the Harvard Law School and a brilliant scholar) and Janet Reno, a hard-working and dedicated public servant whose mom and her built their own cabin together, each have some beautiful qualities that make them special to those who know them. If the hypothetical "beauty" contest dealt with quality of the soul, Palin would lose to the other three.
