You can't argue with science

I've often pondered why Democrat women -- at least those who hold office, with some exceptions -- tend to be but ugly. At last, I have my answer:
Hillary Clinton. Barbara Mikulski. Dianne Feinstein. Nancy Pelosi. Samantha Power. Janet Reno. Donna Shalala**. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Barbara Boxer. What do all of these women have in common? They are Democrats. And they are butt ugly. Mere statistics alone would suggest if you got a dozen or so Democrat women politicians together there would be some glimmer of attractiveness, no matter how dim, somewhere. But you would be wrong.
That's right, science confirms what our eyes see. Conservative women are better looking:
Research has found that being attractive influences many things in a person’s life — their salary, their popularity and grades in school, even the prison sentences they receive. So why not their politics?
A recently published study in the Journal of Public Economics concludes that the attractiveness of a candidate does correlate with their politics. They find that politicians on the right are more good looking in Europe, the United States and Australia.
It makes sense, really. Democrats push a philosophy of victimhood -- they tell all of their various constituent groups that they are victims. Life has never been worse for women in this country, or for blacks, or for gays, or for whoever, even though all of those positions are demonstrably false. Is life perfect? No, but things have never been better, and they continue to improve. So, naturally, people who don't feel like victims don't subscribe to the politics that drive people to the Democrat party. And science concurs:
The study shows correlation, not causation, but the researchers float a simple economic explanation for why this might happen. Numerous studies have shown that good-looking people are likely to earn more, and that people who earn more are typically more opposed to redistributive policies, like the progressive taxes and welfare programs favored by the left.
The researchers also offer a more general psychological explanation for the trend: That good-looking people are often treated better than others, and thus see the world as a more just place. Past studies have found that the more attractive people believe themselves to be, the lower their preference for egalitarianism, a value typically associated with the political left.
It makes total sense. "Feminists" and Democrats will never say anything bad about the treatment of women or gays in Muslim countries, but are happy to make it sound like life in the U.S. for women and gays is the next worst thing to Auschwitz. Obviously, it isn't, but women are clearly oppressed in Muslim countries and gays are freaking executed.

OK,, so I'm sorry ugly people aren't treated as nicely as good-looking people. Is that any reason to try to subject me to socialism? Fuck off. It's not my fault I'm pretty.
