The Mae West Presidency


You wanted a leader to make the tough decisions? Heh. You got a prom king who preens for the cameras and plays a mean teleprompter.

Via Instapundit.

UPDATE: Apparently this is all it takes for the Nobel Peace Prize. Move over Jimmy Carter. Heh. (Why not? The prize was already a patronizing mockery.)

    She’s better looking.

  3. For a fat chick who probably bathed once a month, she’s darn sexy.
    I love her movies. There’s one in particular, I can’t remember which, with WC Fields that had me in stitches and all turned on all at the same time.
    I’ve always been surprised at what she got away with implying the stuff she implied with that ultra-sexy voice.
    The first time I realized she came up with, “Is that pistol in your pocket or are you happy to see me?” I was stunned she got away with that in the 20s or 30s.
    Comparing her to Obama is wrong though. She had charm, a sense of humor and nerve.
    He has an overweening ego and thin skin.
