The Nose: Run Tell Obama, George Jepsen Is Smoking Hot

Apr 5, 2013

Today on the Nose, we're going to talk about looks. 

By now you probably know that President Obama stirred up a tempest this week when, after praising California Attorney General Kamala Harris as brilliant, dedicated and tough, he called her "the best-looking attorney general in the country." He meant it in a light-hearted way, but some critics have jabbed at him for including physical appearance in an appraisal of a woman's job performance. Meanwhile, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford surprised people by winning a primary and becoming the nominee for a seat in Congress. Accepting the nomination, he was accompanied by his Argentine fiancee, who may or may not be good looking. His opponent will be Stephen Colbert's sister, whom a Republican official called "not a bad looking lady."
