Why Appearances Matter--and Corrupt

In response to pasionate comments both pro and con on my previous post, What Did Sarah Learn?", I have been thinking a lot about why it matters that Sarah Palin uses her looks, her cutesy down-home phrases, her flirty moves.

Consider for a moment what one's energy bill might look like 25 years from now. ...more
