GOP wives are a polís breast friend: Front-runners get ample attention on the front lines
boston herald.com ^ | 6/03/07 | Margery Eagan

Posted on 06/03/2007 4:30:07 PM PDT by melt

Does the heaving bosom play well among Bible Belt Republicans? Among New Hampshire primary voters?

How else to explain, as debate week begins, the bursting out all over by GOP front-runners’ wives? What’s with this ample - and aging - display of decolletage?

Mrs. John McCain, 52, just gave Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren an at-home tour wearing this tight, bubble-gum-pink wraparound shirt cut to her sternum. Three inches of cleavage. Poor Greta, the consummate professional in blue blazer and yellow button-down, didn’t know where to look.

Meanwhile nearly half the pictures you see of Judy Nathan, aka Mrs. Giuliani, also 52, are very bosomy. Is this supposed to convince those wondering about Rudy - you know, after he bunked with the gay guys post divorce #2 - that he’s not just A Big Hetero but A Big Hetero Who Loves Big Hetero Breasts?

Flashed around the country Thursday was yet another full cleavage shot of Fred Thompson’s child wife looking almost as well-endowed as Alex Rodriguez’s stripper/pole-dancer girlfriend. “That was quite a dress,” said one GOP analyst, breathless.

Perhaps Fred’s wife “Jeri” - yes, with an “i” - helps Fred with AARP, Viagra-ed up men: “You still got it goin’, Fred, you dirty dog.”

Doubt it helps him with women. Let’s face it, we’re all thinking the same thing: Fred’s 64. He’s really drooping. She’s 40, and not. Next to her, he looks 110.

“You wouldn’t see any Bush boobs,” says my GOP guy.

Fred's "child wife" is 40 yrs old? The old bag must play a lot of 'rack'etball to stay in shape.

Fred's older than his M-i-L, according to a report I heard Friday.

By four years, iirc.

That’s a lot of blackmail power. The media would love to hear tales of how rotten a husband she married... instant political scandal.

40 years old is hardly a “child wife”. Maybe, like many women, she appreciates an intelligent man.
Looks to me like someone had nothing to write about. I’m wondering if the writer is jealous of the women- or their husbands.

I’m My Own Grandpa
Dwight Latham, Moe Jaffe

Oh, many, many years ago
When I was twenty-three
I was married to a widow
Who was pretty as can be

This widow had a grown-up daughter
Who had hair of red
My father fell in love with her
And soon the two were wed

This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life
For my daughter was my mother
‘Cause she was my father’s wife

To complicate the matter
Though it really brought me joy
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy

This little baby then became
A brother-in-law to Dad
And so became my uncle
Though it made me very sad

For if he was my uncle
Then that also made him brother
Of the widow’s grown-up daughter
Who of course is my step-mother

Chorus

I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
Oh, I’m my own grandpa

My father’s wife then had a son
Who kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild
For he was my daughter’s son

My wife is now my mother’s mother
And it makes me blue
Because although she is my wife
She’s my grandmother too

Now if my wife is my grandmother
Then I’m her grandchild
And every time I think of it
It nearly drives me wild

For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw
As husband of my grandma
I am my own grand

Of course hideous communist retards like “Teresa” without the “H” Gold Digger Heinz are much more appropriate First Lady material.

Ppppfffttt....

Fact- Jeri was PREGNANT when that picture was taken.

Fact- Fred’s first wife thinks so highly of him she’s said she would campaign for him.

Fact- Jeri was a political media consultant at Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard and McPherson in D.C. and worked for the Senate Republican Conference and the Republican National Committee.

Well, it's a hit piece, but I have to admit, I didn't know about Fred's wife. Whatever. I can't say it helps. It's not the usual. But we'll see how it plays out. Women might be turned off. Seems like the classic case of an older dude trading in for a younger model. But I don't know the circumstances of his divorce. Anyway, point being, the hit piece did succeed in telling me something I didn't know about Fred.

So this is what our western culture has devolved to. It’s no wonder that our Party effete are leading us by our noses to choose nominees who lack military knowledge, tend toward more funding for anti-family social programs, vote in favor of foreign hordes of cheap labor, and favor a yet stronger judicial against constitutional rights. The candidates only need to pretend that they are opposed to their own voting records.

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Hysteria \Hys*te"ri*a\, n. [NL.: cf. F. hyst['e]rie. See
     Hysteric.] (Med.)
     A nervous affection, occurring almost exclusively in women,
     in which the emotional and reflex excitability is
     exaggerated, and the will power correspondingly diminished,
     so that the patient loses control over the emotions, becomes
     the victim of imaginary sensations, and often falls into
     paroxism or fits.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The chief symptoms are convulsive, tossing movements of
           the limbs and head, uncontrollable crying and laughing,
           and a choking sensation as if a ball were lodged in the
           throat. The affection presents the most varied
           symptoms, often simulating those of the gravest
           diseases, but generally curable by mental treatment
           alone. Hysteric

Thge first thing I did when rumors about Thompson making a run came up a few months ago was to check out who the new first lady would be.

Although initially concerned about the age difference, all she has to do is cover up the cleavage and smile, keep her mouth shut and let Fred do his thing.

People will appreciate that she is not a Heinz or Hitlery type.

It helps that she finally turned 40.

"Fred's "child wife" is 40 yrs old? The old bag must play a lot of 'rack'etball to stay in shape."

So he's about 25 years older than his wife. If a construction worker does the same, we're outraged. That's okay, though, for our superiors. Some of them are around 40 years older than their wives (and some even older than that) .

That was smart. Sort of a strange, but definitely significant part of the game. Pageantry and all that. I just wonder what the bio is on the first wife. Fred's a little long in the tooth, he needs to appeal to women.

I wonder what the author thinks of Dennis Kucinich's wife:
There was a lot of joking in 2004 that Kucinich was running for President so he could find a hot wife. It looks like it worked!

Regarding Fred Thompson--it seems as though he married for the first time when he was 17, in 1959. He got divorced '25 years later', which would be approximately 1984. By all accounts, it was a friendly divorce. I haven't been given any reason yet to think that the divorce was even his idea. He remarried in 2002, approximately 18 years after his divorce. That's not what anyone could call: 'trading the old one in on a younger model'.

By the way, did anyone have the endurance to read down to the bottom of the article, where the author thinks that it's just thrilling that Dennis Kuchinich married someone 31 years younger than he is?

Aha!
According to Margery Eagan’s logic Dennis Kucinich’s younger wife is proof for his charm and intelligence,
but Fred Thompson’s younger wife is proof that he is an old, valueless pervert.

He was divorced quite some time before marrying her.

Let’s move on to something with substance. Let’s focus on his positions on issues.

JUST SENT THE FOLLOWING TO THE AUTHOR

Ms. Eagan,

I think our country is facing much larger, pressing and grave issues than the ages and breast sizes of candidates’ wives.

What is a female writer and commentator like you doing writing such mental garbage? You have set back the cause of women by your foolish chatter. You ought to be ashamed.

Please join the responsible adults in this country and talk about something important. If you can’t, please shut up.

Regards,

Well believe it or not, it is an issue of substance. Seems to me it matters to a lot of voters who might be first lady. I sure do recall quite a lot of time spent on Teresa Heinz Kerry last time around. It matters. And sometimes the circumstances of a person's divorce (e.g., Guliani, Newt) tells you something about the character of the man. I'm not saying Fred did anything wrong. I'm just saying it's a fair question. That's not even debatable. I seriously doubt you were complaining about ppl trashing Teresa Heinz Kerry back in 04. It's politics, a game that has only a little to do with substance.
