Cover Girl


It is hard, if not impossible, to snub a beautiful woman--they remain beautiful and the rebuke recoils. -- Winston Churchill

The cover of the Number 1 best selling book in America months before the first printing of 1.5 million comes off the press. It underscores The Beautiful Candidate @ AMERICAN DIGEST from September 10, 2008:
Attractiveness is a quality generally found in the political classes. Not always, of course, but more often than in most other lines of work. And while a certain intelligence plus an ability to immediately make a direct connection to another person are probably more important qualities, attractiveness doesn't hurt. What is highly unusual, however, is for a candidate for office to be actually beautiful. To even the most passing glance of anyone not poisoned by ideology, it is immediately obvious that Sarah Palin possesses classic beauty. The last day's flap over the attempt of her opponent, Barrack Obama, to attach the label of "pig" to Ms. Palin not only fails because it is coarse and rude, it also fails because it is not true. I might also suggest that, inside Obama' mind, he plunged into his gaffe because he knows he does not possess "beauty."

That title and cover portrait seemed oddly familiar.

Then I remembered something...
