Qualifications

New York Times reporter on why Caroline Kennedy is qualified for the NY Senate seat: "...She's a lawyer, she's written books, she's beautiful..." Uh, whose job was it to inform me that beauty is a qualifying position for the Senate? Because I had no idea until yesterday. Ah, beauty can get you far in this crazy world of ours.

Well, we've always know being beautiful got you places in this world. But most people don't come right out and state it. Wouldn't it be awesome to say, "Yeah, I got this sweet government job because I'm so dang hot!"
