Besides causing Tam to need to wash out her brain,

Breda reminded me of something:
back during the primaries I was talking to a woman a friend had introduced me to, and the subject turned to politics, at which point she mentioned she wanted Edwards to get the nomination.

Up to that point I'd thought she seemed a pretty bright sort, so I asked "Why?"
"He's so good looking! And that voice..."

It was one of those "What the hell is going to happen to my country?" moments.

And no, I didn't see her again.

Well, my cousin said that she voted for Kennedy in 1960 because he was better looking. . .
My mother voted for him,too, but, straight Democrat ticket voter that she was, even she thought that was a stupid reason.
