Dear Tell All: I question the taste of GOP Convert, who thinks Paul Ryan is sexy and yearns for a chance to hook up with him ("Paul Ryan Is So Cute!" 8/23/2012). I admit that I considered Ryan vaguely handsome during his years as Janesville's U.S. representative, but I didn't give it much thought. Now that his mug is in every newspaper, on every website and in endless TV-news close-ups, I've had a chance to take a better look at him.
Paul Ryan, sexy? Blecch! Start with that greased-up hair, cut in a corny style reminiscent of a 1950s B-movie extra. Then there's the thin, nonsensual lips, which he emphasizes with those weird frowny-smile expressions during his stiff speeches. Finally, what could be less of a turn-on than Ryan's extreme stances against a woman's reproductive rights?
If I were set up on a blind date with Paul Ryan, I'd run at the first sight of him.
Now Barack Obama - that guy is a babe. Beautiful smile...intelligent eyes...a comfortableness in his body language...a sense of strength mixed with sensitivity in his personality. Not to mention policies that respect a woman's ability to make independent decisions about her own health.
If I saw Obama's profile and picture on a singles website, I'd pounce.
Dear Tell All: If GOP Convert wants a chance to get close to Paul Ryan, the best play is to vote for Obama/Biden. Once Ryan gets lifetime Secret Service protection, there will never be another chance to casually bump into him at the grocery store. And while we know it's not impossible for someone under Secret Service protection to have an affair, it would be a lot easier for a mere congressman to do so. So keep the romantic dream alive, and vote Obama/Biden in 2012!
