Yikes! Maureen Dowd cited it yesterday, but if you haven't read it, here's Lisa Schiffren's Wall Street Journal article about Sex God Bush. A condensed version:
...really hot...."hot," as in virile, sexy and powerful....I was mesmerized....stunning ..."He's a hottie. No doubt about it. Really a hottie. ... "Hot? SO HOT!!!!! THAT UNIFORM!" ..."Oh God, yes,"... "I mean, that swagger. George Bush in a pair of jeans is a treat to watch." ...all this heat ...
I'm so glad these people have, y'know, values, unlike us sickos on the left.
Oh, and by the way, this comes from The Wall Street Journal's "Taste" page.
In the Sex God Bush article, Schiffren sniffs that women on the snooty East Side of Manhattan get Bush's hunkitude, but on the liberal/nerd/pinko West Side, where she lives (as do I), the juices aren't flowing in sync with hers -- as she puts it, using wording that seems more appropriate for a Stalinist show trial, when she tried to discuss Bush's alleged attractiveness with Upper West Side women, "there was dissent."
Many of them still cite Bill Clinton and his allegedly penetrating intellect as more appealing.
Liberals make such a fetish of intellect.
It's impossible to respond to this -- especially from a former speechwriter for Dan Quayle.
But I do find myself thinking back to The Rocky Horror Picture Show -- specifically to Susan Sarandon saying, "I don't like men with too many muscles." Maybe we need to (partially) recast the movie, with George Bush as the dumb, lab-built macho man Rocky and Karl Rove as his creator, the transvestite mad scientist, who snaps at Sarandon in reply, "I DIDN'T MAKE HIM FOR YOU!"
