    Why are you right when I’m so wrong?

    Ann Althouse takes issue with Andrew Sullivan’s sardonic comments about Sarah Palin’s winking during the debate. Althouse specifically tackles this Rich Lowry post, in which he admits to finding Sarah Palin sexy. Althouse makes a good point, but she doesn’t seem to remember this post by Sullivan himself a few years ago. About a VP candidate. In a debate.

    Well, I could easily be wrong, but I have a feeling Cheney will crush Edwards tonight. The format is God’s gift to Daddy. They’ll both be seated at a table, immediately allowing Cheney to do his assured, paternal, man-of-the-world schtick that makes me roll on my back and ask to have my tummy scratched. (Yes, I do think that Cheney is way sexier than Edwards. Not that you asked or anything.)

    Your day’s complete now, right?

    Personally, I don’t see why we shouldn’t take note of a politician who’s unusually hot; it’s not as if Washington were so chock-a-block with irresistible sexpots that we’d run the risk of being distracted indefinitely from economic, geopolitical, and energy policy. Corn subsidies are at least as sexy as the average member of congress.

    Eric, BTW, notes that Palin’s winking is not exactly precedent-setting.

      As you know, I’ve always found Netanyahu and Putin to be quite hot. Nothing wrong with noticing that kind of stuff!

    2. Sean Kinsell says:

      Even setting aside his politics, I’m not all that hot for Putin. He’s a stud, certainly, just not my type. Netanyahu also isn’t my usual type, really, but he’s damned sexy.

      And no, nothing wrong with noticing. It’s usually a lot less depressing than paying attention to what politicians are actually doing in their capacity as politicians, more’s the pity. :(

      A little rationality lifts the quality of the debate here. Thanks for cointnburitg!

    4. Oh, Keil himself has noticed it as well:“Eine weniger unsinnige Alternative zu dieser Anlage wäre ihre Halbierung: Die Beschränkung auf die Wasserstoffproduktion aus Windstrom und die Vermarktung des Gases als Brennstoff oder Chemierohstoff. ”“A less nonsensical alternative to this installation would be half of it: Sticking to production of H2 from wind energy and marketing the gas as fuel or raw material.”
