This picture just makes me laugh
The look on her face is really funny.
What isn't funny, but puzzling and I don't know if it is meaningful or not... is that I hadn't seen any pictures of her before this morning. I've been a little out of the loop--I had a rough idea of what she looked like, but no mental image. I had only heard what she had to say, and I didn't like it. I don't like how her first out-of-the-gate things to say belittle the contributions of somebody who I respect A LOT. There's more but I won't go into it here.
Now after looking through a roll of pictures of her, however, I can't help but like her more because she wears hot shoes and has a seriously stylish coat. Because she is well put together and her hair looks good. Because it looks like she wears Bare Minerals foundation and her glasses are pretty modern. BUT THAT'S THE ONLY REASON I LIKE HER BETTER: BECAUSE OF WHAT SHE LOOKS LIKE AND HOW SHE DRESSES.
Isn't that kind of disturbing? That my style-sense unconsciously goes "Okay, you're in the club because you look like one of the cool kids, even though I TOTALLY DISAGREE with most of the decisions you would make for our country."
