Survey Says GOP Women Are Prettier
The Daily Beast ^| 10/6/12 | Allison Yarrow

They’re calling it the Michele Bachmann effect. And no, it’s not the Minnesota congresswoman’s crusade to ban falafel from public schools. It refers to the relationship between a woman’s politics and her face.

Allison Yarrow hit the Highline to see if people could tell a difference between Democratic and Republican female politicians.

Women politicians with “stereotypical feminine facial features” are more often Republicans, found researchers at UCLA]. And the more feminine their features, the more conservative their voting records. They also found the reverse—that women with more masculine facial features tended to be Democrats. Less gender-typical visages tracked with more liberal voting records. The correlation between face and party ideology was stronger for Republican women politicians than Democrats.

Psychology Professor Kerri Johnson and graduate student Colleen Carpinella applied computer modeling to pictures of the entire 111th U.S. Congress to determine which facial features and the spacing between them connote a more masculine or more feminine face. They then asked college students to look at the 434 portraits and guess which women belonged to each party—and they pegged Republican women correctly 98 percent of the time. Johnson and Carpinella posit that the reason for these facial correlations in women politicians stem from perceived gender roles entrenched in each party’s DNA.

"The Democratic Party is associated with social liberal policies that aim to diminish gender disparities, whereas the Republican Party is associated with socially conservative policy issues that tend to bolster traditional sex roles," Johnson said in a UCLA release.

The trend did not apply to male politicians in the same way. Male Republican faces “scored less masculine” than Democrats, but the researchers found this less interesting than the data about women because they said male politicians are less likely to “exhibit masculinity through their appearance” than through their actions.

An awesome fact. According to the Pew Research Center and various other political polls, President Obama holds a 19 point lead over Romney in women voters. That's national. In Ohio Obama holds a 25 point lead in women. There's a reason. The republicans have peeved us off by what they've been doing concerning us. This isn't 1912, it's 2012 & we're now a voting force. The republican party is totally for the ultra-rich and religious extremists. They aren't for women, minorities, low income, or middle class working people or families.

The Republican party 'definitely is not' for women .....

"I think it's harmful to women. I think it's harmful to our society to have a society that says that sex outside of marriage is something that should be encouraged or tolerated, particularly among the young. And I think we've very, very harmful long-term consequences to our society. Birth control to me enables that, and I don't think it's a healthy thing for our country."
-- Republican Rick Santorum, on why he wants states to have the power to ban birth control pills.

"You could argue that money is more important for men. I think a guy in their first job, maybe because they expect to be a breadwinner someday, may be a little more money-conscious."
-- Republican Governor Scott Walker (2012), on why he repealed Wisconsin's 2009 Equal Pay Enforcement Act, which allowed women victims of pay discrimination redress in state courts.

"It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare (pregnancy from rape). If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
-- Republican Todd Akin (2012)

“Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her. I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.”
-- Pat Robertson, two days after campaigning with Mitt Romney three weeks ago Robertson, of the 700 Club, said this in answer to a man asking him what he should do about his wife who insults and doesn't respect him.

"The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
-- Pat Robertson, who campaigned with Mitt Romney three weeks ago.

“We've got real issues to talk about not the latest bimbo eruption.”
-- Republican Jon Huntsman (2012) when asked about former presidential candidate Herman Cain’s sexual harassment and assault allegations.

Seeing pace-faced Ann and realizing she and I have the same hairstyle, it makes me want to get a pixie! One thing we don't have in common though is....botox! She'd better be cautious or she might wind up with the Republican Priscilla Presley face! Elvis would roll over in his grave.

No we aren't, but given my intelligence, I do feel this is a very immaterial thread with below zero substance matter. If you want to get real however, I'd suggest that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had enough beauty to wrap up everything and anything you could come up with collectively. Beauty - hands down. Grace - hands down. Culture- hands down. Etiquette - hands down. Do you actually dream that you could come up with a greater beauty? Not possible. She was the most photographed woman of all time. Ms. Romney couldn't come close, being a cross between Deliverance and the Botox needle and if she wanted to get even more pace-faced, her husband could always have Bain buy up the Botox manufacturing company! Some of the dresses she wears enables you to see her coming 120 miles away between the purple circles and tye-dye. Mrs. Kennedy wore beautiful traditional suits and would have been a stunning beauty in a feed sack.

Is there anything else I can assist with. Otherwise, I'm far too busy with real issues. I would however suggest that if Mr. Romney expects sympathy on the MS end (which is part of what he's using her for), I'd use someone else for the poster child. I think her multi million dollar doctors are a slap in the face to the real people who are afflicted with this whom people like you are trying to deny healthcare extentions to. I guess if you have enough money though, you're entitled to get better care and live longer.

Thank you. Did I leave you speechless? Mission accomplished.

Now let me guess, you are refraining from admitting that Jackie Kennedy was the most beautiful First Lady that ever graced the halls of D.C.? Right? Right. And you're also admitting that it's ok for a millionaire to get the best of care while trying to deny others that same chance in life. Sorry, no pity here for the pace-face. Put a heart and conscience for others in that woman...then we'll talk.

Jackie Kennedy was the wife of a Democrat back when Democrats were regular people. Do you remember "Ask not what the country can do for you"? If he was around today, he'd be a conservative Republican. I'm speaking of the current bunch.....people like you, Pelosi, Hillary, Michelle, and so on. People who believe citizens should protect trees and whales, while demanding legal baby killing, sodomy, dope, and taxpayer money for freeloaders who won't work. People who think taxpayers should respect and support Muslim terrorists who kill and maim our citizens. People who think those who enter our country illegally and commit crimes against our citizens should be protected and given a free ride. People who believe the traditions of our nation should be cast aside so that the government can protect and bankroll the lifestyle of the most vile and disgusting persons who exist in the dregs of society. That's the kind of Democrats I'm speaking of. And, all the makeup in the world isn't enough to keep that slimy core from oozing out to the surface.

Interestingly, Jackie Kennedy was orginally a Republican in a time when Republicans were regular people. In fact, she said,“You have to have been a Republican to know how good it is to be a Democrat.” You consider JFK to be a conservative Republican if he were alive today.... as a person who has read numerous books about JFK, I have to say that he believed in separation of chuch and state (conservatives today want a theocracy), supported Civil Rights (Republicans today want to go back to the days of voter suppression), and avoided war when his military brass wanted to eliminate Cuba from the map (the Cuban missle crisis). Oh, yeah, avoiding war is typical Republican behavior. Now who got us into a war with Iraq on false charges? That Republican cowboy from Texas. I don't agree with Democrats today on all things, but they are no more evil than Republicans. Open your eyes and pay attention to something besides FOX NEWS.

WWl=Democrat

WWll=Democrat

Korean War= Democrat

Vietnam War=Democrat

P.S. Check the Democrat and Republican House and Senate votes on the civil rights act of 1964. Then stand in the corner for being so stupid as to swallow and repeat the Democrat party line about Republicans being anti-civil rights.

Now take a look at the stands the Republican party takes now days. It 'is not' the same party it was way back before I was born. It's so changed, the Republican party should do the right thing and change the name to something else.

BTW, I can find things where the Democrat party stood up for rights a lot more recent than 48 years ago.

For example, all though the 1970's. And more recent ..... this year. Who is downing women, minorities, and gays/lesbians?
