The Hot Ticket

Do you find yourself unable to resist the charms of Mitt Romney? Does your stomach sour at the thought of being forced to cuddle with Hillary Clinton? You’re not alone, says a new study done in Sweden and Finland. The research showed that right-wing politicians were generally considered to be more attractive than their left-wing counterparts. What’s more, being attractive translated into receiving more votes during elections.

So why are all the Republicans hotties and the Democrats notties? Well, it turns out being gorgeous makes you a terrible person. One of the researchers explains, “’People who are seen or consider themselves to be beautiful tend to be more anti-egalitarian and hence more attracted to right wing politics.” So basically when you’re sexy you’re all like, “I can’t stop thinking about how good I look in this bikini. I don’t care about anything but protecting my right to wear whatever bikini looks best on me and makes corporations the most money.” Or something like that?
