There She is…Miss Arteejee!
Long time follower Janey raised a question recently about the women who have served as the unofficial sex symbol for the Arteejee blog site. For the longest time, this honor was held by former Alaska Governor and professional quitter Sarah Palin. I bestowed this honor on her without benefit of competition from others equally qualified for the title.
And what are those qualifications? Well, of course, the women need to be celebrated and noteworthy, not so much for achievements they attained, but rather for the sheer stupidity of their political views. The views are usually aided and abetted by any number of empty-headed, vapid comments stemming from their conservative world view.
Oh yes, the contestants are usually conservative politically. This is the forbidden fruit aspect of their qualification. Lord knows I would never bring one of these conservative women home to mother, but I would still enjoy a romp with them if only so I could dismiss them in the morning with a curt rejection, if not outright kicking them out of bed. Or they could do it to me, no matter. In my life, someone usually ends up on the floor in the morning, sobbing how they thought this time was different.
Okay, full disclosure: I was usually the one sobbing on the floor. Okay, more full disclosure: I would not even get the object of my desire into bed in the first place, let alone being kicked out of the bed the morning after. To paraphrase a current popular expression on Twitter: SAD.
Has this topic creeped anyone out yet? To paraphrase Al Jolson: “Just wait, you ain’t read nothing yet!”
And of course there is the shallow factor. Do they look good in heels? Does their walk in said heels emphasize their “jello on springs” effect*? And of course are they sufficiently well endowed “upstairs”? By upstairs I am referring to the mezzanine, not the penthouse. I am not interested in intelligence or the capacity of their brain.
My, it is getting creepy in here, isn’t it?
In any case, it is time for Ms. Palin to relinquish her crown and let a new empty-headed conservative woman assume the title. This year’s nominees include a few legacy contestants, a dark horse and a newcomer to the national political scene.
Our first returning legacy contestant has been bandied about or lusted after in this blog before. Her long legs and equally long blonde hair won her accolades in the shallow competition. Lord knows her various attacks on liberals over the years have been mean-spirited, but more importantly, extremely vapid. Unfortunately the wrinkles around her Adam’s apple have become more obvious in recent years and, maybe this is my imagination, it seems that her nose also grew longer. Ann, perhaps it’s time to retire from active competition, and let a new pair of legs walk the catwalk.
Haley is another legacy contestant, a non-blonde, which is a plus for me. Sometimes these beauty pageants get over-blonded. She has had her share of stupid conservative views in the past, but more recently she has voiced views which, to this liberal’s ears, sound positively progressive! Perish the thought!
This and the fact that she has been appointed to the political no-man’s land equivalent position of US Ambassador of the United Nations guarantees that we may not hear her utterances, vapid or otherwise, for a long time to come.
Has the inches in the legs department for a high shallow score and her past comments certainly qualify her for runner up in the stupid political view competition. However, on the whole she has come off as, how shall we say, mannish? Must…resist…snarky comment…about…Mr. Bachmann…here….
Our dark horse candidate has some obvious pluses and minuses. He’s a sympathy candidate: lost the nomination, elbowed out of the President’s transition team, and soon his term as governor of New Jersey will expire. What else can go wrong for him? His major plus: rumor has it that he once beat the crap out of a bunch of bleeding heart liberals in a schoolyard when they dared to raise their hands to ask him a question while he spewed out some conservative gibberish. This really impressed the Arteejee judges during the talent completion.
Minuses: wrong gender. Sorry to say that we at Arteejee have clearly defined (read sexist) rules for the Miss Arteejee competition. This blog, while friendly to all cultures, persuasions and orientations, does not swing THAT way. Besides, to paraphrase a popular Polish polka, “He’s too fat for me!”
The newest contestant and what’s not to like: leggy, blonde, and those comments defending the new administration? WOW! Of course her comments run the risk of turning the judges against her. It’s one thing to play the part of a dumb blonde, but Kellyanne abuses the privilege.
Yes, I know wrong gender again, but has any one seen those images of him in drag on the Internet? He could very well pass as Kellyanne’s doppelganger. On the other hand we refuse to believe he has ever said anything as stupid as Kellyanne. Still, we could slot him in as one of the runners ups. Just saying.
So there are the contestants for Arteejee Sex Symbol for 2017. What say ye, judges?
