It’s right up there with the John Edwards $300.00 haircut – which, by the by, in no way affected my decision to not vote for his dumb ass!
To my fellow citizens, if this is truly a factor to you in this world spiraling out of control – then just find a hole to live in SHUT THE FUCK UP and just watch TV and let the rest of us alone.
The amount of time spent on this ridiculous issue is just that. Here is an example of the continued ridiculousnesses where the comments, retractions, and backpedaling is almost a laughable as the original article.
Firstly, the fact that Fred is a powerful man (in Politics & Media) may play into his marriage – both the failed and second – but isn’t that a really a presumption in that regard? We been seeing a ton of disparate age marriages in good ol’ Hollywood as well as the power elite, so why is Fred different since he walks in both worlds?
I mean if truth be told with all the political screw ups: bad checks, drug use, sex scandals and the flat out ass-fucking of the constitution…it would be refreshing to have the president have a trophy wife! Think about the benefits to American society:
+Sex with a hot wife – no extramarital affairs
+Like most of us men with a good looking woman on their arm he’ll have no need to impress…he’s got it already – wars, etc. are no longer needed to flaunt his manhood.
+If she were a TRUE trophy wife (i.e. just stood around and looked good), there would be no family dominance struggles – a la Clinton/Bush.
+Americans would tune in to see the president more if the “hot wife” was there so maybe more Americans would understand their political landscape (even peripherally would be better than it is now).
We’d have (hopefully) another Jackie Kennedy showing us the Van Buren china on TV.
Seriously…before you talk about his wife, a simple check would tell you she’s actually quite savvy politically herself: she’s degreed in political theory, worked as a political media consultant for a DC law firm as well as was with the Senate Republican Conference and the Republican National Committee (it’s how she met Fred). She is also said to be very involved with Fred’s political activities is is reputed to be the reason he has decided to run for POTUS.
Maybe one should consider that it’s reversed and it’s Jerry Kehn-Thompson with a trophy husband…similar to (in this writer’s humble opinion) another presidential candidate with a REAL trophy spouse!
