    State Rep. Steve Valliancourt (via NH Insider)Let's be honest. Does anyone not believe that Congressman Annie Kuster is as ugly as sin? And I hope I haven't offended sin.

    If looks really matter and if this race is at all close, give a decided edge to Marilinda Garcia.

    How ugly is Annie Kuster? Again avert your eyes if you don't want to hear it, but I actually thought of Annie Kuster last weekend when I was in Montreal. Not far from the Second Cup Coffee Shop I at which I was sipping and writing is a bar called Mados. It's on the section of St. Catherine Street which is blocked off for pedestrians only in the summer; it's near the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Thus, tens of thousands of Montrealers and visitors walk by Mados on their way to the fireworks displays on summer nights.

    On almost any given night, standing for all to see in front of Mados is a rather attractive drag queen. People stop to pose for pictures with this Mado drag queen; other drag queens gather round because, you see, Mados is a drag queen bar...not that there's anything wrong with that. Long live Victor Victoria; long live La Cage Aux Folles.

    By now you probably know why I think of Annie Kuster whenever I walk by Mados; sad to say, but the drag queens are more atrractive than Annie Kuster....not that there's anything wrong with that.

    This guy would NEVER make it on Seinfeld! icon_lol.gif

    Anyway, the Republican nominee to replace him (Garcia) has denounced his vile rhetoric.


    Concord MonitorGarcia said his remarks “are sexist and have absolutely no place in political discourse. . . . I hope that as time moves forward and more female candidates run for political office around the country, people will focus on the content of our ideas rather than what we wear and how we look.”

    Now, "If looks really matter," then who on Earth were YOU running against, Steve?


    So, tell me, Stevie, how did you enjoy Skeletor's concession speech? icon_lol.gif

    Concord MonitorVaillancourt anticipated backlash to his post, couching it in an introduction that warned “the subject matter, although very real, may prove uncomfortable for some of my more sensitive readers.”

    “This is the kind of dirty little secret that most people usually don’t like to admit, (but) if we stop to admit it, looks matter in politics,” he wrote.

    Do they?

    “It’s not crazy to say it, but it’s not that simple,” Chappell Lawson, associate professor of political science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said.

    Appearance can influence voters’ opinions of candidates. But there are several caveats, Lawson said.

    Once voters know a candidate’s party affiliation, that tends to trump looks. And the more voters know about a candidate’s position on issues, the less they care about appearance, Lawson said.

    “If you don’t know much about the candidates and don’t care much about the issues, and the race doesn’t seem important and the only cue you have is name and picture,” he said, “then you would expect a large effect from that picture.”

    Just off of Wikipedia:

    Who's "ugly" again, Stevie?

    WikiVaillancourt opposed the 2011 attempted repeal of same-sex marriage in the state, joining a minority of the Republican supermajority in opposition to the repeal...

    Vaillancourt and former Democratic House member Raymond Buckley had been friends since 1983, and housemates until 1999, when Vaillancourt evicted Buckley for unknown reasons. The relationship has been strained since then. In January 2007, Vaillancourt leveled accusations that Buckley possessed child pornography, causing Buckley to temporarily suspend his campaign for the chairmanship of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. Vaillancourt later admitted he had no proof to back up his allegations...

    On May 15, 2012, Vaillancourt was temporarily suspended from the House floor after stating "Sieg Heil" in the direction of the Speaker, Bill O'Brien. The action came after Vaillancourt objected to limitations on debate over a voter ID bill, only to be ruled out of order by the Speaker... Vaillancourt was the first member of the New Hampshire House to be ejected from the chamber in over two decades.

    So ironic! This guy's a jerk of the worst kind. He must never have been able to look at himself in the mirror, because it broke first. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself)
