Crushing on Mary Landrieu
The stereotype of the lusty Senator committing adultery with various groupies is pervasive in DC, and in American pop culture. However, that stereotype always conjures up the image of a silver-haired Senator in a suit -- in other words, a man. It is against this powerful stereotype that I must admit to having a thing for a Senator, but in my case it is the very female Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana.
I don't know what it is -- the blonde power coif, the prim azure suits matching friendly yet confident eyes, the pearly smile hinting of former beauty queen. Actually, I think it's the cheeks. The cheeks are healthy, outdoorsy, youthful. Those cheeks should be chewing a long piece of straw under a curled cowboy hat in a sunlit field.
I may have to move to Louisiana and become a flood victim.
