Headline of the day: WND plays “GOP women are prettier” game

| »

There’s a new study floating around that purports to find how female Republican lawmakers are supposedly more “feminine” in appearance. The study authors, a couple of university psychology researchers, postulate that this is a result of conservative voters preferring political candidates who have more “gender typicality” – ie. who conform more to traditional gender roles. Democratic voters, apparently, aren’t so stuck up about appearances and prefer to be swayed by policy over physical attributes.

Meanwhile, how did that esteemed conservative publication known as the WorldNetDaily react to these findings?

Thus providing more evidence to support the long-running theory that a number of Right-wing outlets are secretly curated by horny fifteen-year-olds.
