I wonder how how much of Sarah Palin’s appeal allure is based on how utterly inexplicable she and her beliefs are. But maybe that’s just her way of splitting the Cheechakos from the Sourdough.

At all events, she is somewhat alluring, and nowhere more so than in this picture I found on the wonderful Andrew Sullivan’s blog. It almost makes you forget what she’s banging on about, namely that Obama wants to kill babies or some such.

Amusingly, an Irish girl a couple of years ahead of Dr C at university was taught at school that Protestants eat babies.

Anyway, the search for hot women in government continues. We are much the poorer for Caroline Flint’s departure. And you’d think that Kitty Ussher would be a bit of hottie with a name like that. You’d be wrong.
