NEW YORK -- President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi were voted the most stylish politicians, according to Weatherproof's Substance vs. Style poll. Close to 18,000 people voted on the Style vs. Substance poll which was published on Huffington Post's Style section from August 2nd through August 8th.

"I am not totally surprised by the results of this survey," said Eliot Peyser, CEO of Weatherproof. "We knew that President Barack Obama would top the most stylish list, because he is fan of Weatherproof jackets, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has undoubtedly become a style icon with her trademark power suits and Tahitian pearls," Peyser added.

I believe the French aristocracy always dressed stylishly for the guillotine.

When they fail on substance, build up their facade.

the Style vs. Substance poll which was published on Huffington Post's Style section

Takl about 'consider the source'--it's like winning the Nazi Party's Cutest Stormtrooper Award.

In other news, the Huffington Post also voted Harry Reid Sexiest Man Alive and gave Barney Frank its Economist of the Decade trophy.

The one thing they did get right is that both O’Bozo and Piglosi have less substance than style.

But they rate Hillary! as the 3d most stylish female and Sarah Palin is only at number 8?

They must be blind!

Ah, the guillotine.

Again, I volunteer to operate the switch when Obama’s head is there.

I beg to operate the switch.

I’ll pay to operate the switch.

And I want a camera.

They pay a team of stylists to pick out their clothes for them.

At our expense.

“Style vs. Substance”

Think about it. If they only give you two choices in a poll like this you sure as yell aren’t going to think those two have substance. Is it any wonder they chose style??

Boot cut Wranglers, boots and a tee shirt emblazoned with “INFIDEL” in English and Arabic or some such. Tan Stetson or a Green Bay Packers or “Don’t Tread On Me” baseball cap is optional.

You?

Ya, they play to the lowest level of humanity, figuring there are many more voters who’s minds are disengaged that will be impressed with the “doll” images presented to them. Only thing is, the big election of 2008 was a “once in world history” kind of thing and a lot of those voters are off diddling somewhere never to be heard from again. They may “ooh” at those doll images from time to time, but many will never be moved like they were in 08. Remember how we were concerned with the dumbing down of America and what that portends... well 08 was the result. Many are waking and re-educating... it’ll be an up hill climb, but the climb has begun.
