"She is one of the go-to Conservative reporters in Los Angeles"Oh, that's why I've never heard of her. It's a bit like saying "She's one of the leading Manishewitz distributors in Mecca."
Ann-Marie has conducted exclusive interviews with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Lt. Col. Allen West, Newt Gingrich, Frank Gaffney, and was one of the last reporters to interview the late Andrew Breitbart.
Granted, it was several weeks after he died, but post mortem question-and-answer sessions are a lot easier now that there's a Ouija app for the iPad.
Judging the pageant along with Ms. Murrell is Dr. Gina Loudon. World O' Crap readers may remember "Dr." Loudon as the St. Louis-based talk radio host who was ejected from the Missouri Tea Party because Dana Loesch thought she was too crazy. Even more remarkable was her feat of earning both a Masters and a Ph.D in a single year -- 2011-- from distance learning diploma mill Fielding Graduate University. (Not that this is a peculiarly distinguishing characteristic -- there are so many right wingers buying online degrees and calling themselves "Doctor" nowadays that I'm about ready to pitch a remake of Norma Rae, with Sandra Bullock as a reluctant blue collar heroine who inspires exploited diploma mill workers to strike.)
As you can see from the Dutch Angle of her headshot, "Dr." Loudon is also known for her impersonations of Ceiling Cat and every other Special Guest Villain on the old Batman TV series. But more from her later.
Bachelorette Number 3 is a former star of Dallas, and current Townhall wingnut, Morgan Brittany. Bachelorette Number 4 is "Movie producer of Runaway Slave ('A perpetual state of welfare exists in the U.S., creating a form of modern slavery for a large percentage of African-Americans...'), Hating Breitbart (Starring Orson Bean!) and Executive Producer of our PolitiChicks.tv studio shows, Beverly Zaslow."
Rare.us bio, you'll see that she was "recently named one of 'The 50 Hottest People in Online Politics“ by Business Insider." So I think we can all agree that her qualifications for evaluating high-temperature ubermenschen are impeccable.
Anyway, let's hear how our lovely contestants were chosen:
Of course because we’re women of substance, our list requirements are based on:Okay, then. First category is "Top 15 Hottest Conservative Men in New Media," and contains such familiar faces as Jonah Goldberg, Glenn Reynolds, Joseph Farah and Doug Giles.
#1. Intelligence. These guys are brilliant.
#2. Courage. They aren’t afraid to stand up to challenges, speak the truth and fight for our country.
#3: Passion (See above)
#4: Sense of humor. Self-deprecating gets you extra points.
#5: Looks. This can be either conventionally handsome or someone who simply exudes sexiness.
First Runner-Up goes to John Hawkins of Right Wing News, who is seen here...
...showing Stephen Colbert that it's perfectly possible to pose like this, and have it not look fuunny!
You know what? I don't actually think I can make it through the entire pageant -- let's just skim the next few categories...
Top 14 Hottest Conservative Supermen Authors contains more of the usual suspects...
...as well as Glenn Beck, the (Former Virgin) Ben Shapiro, and online crossdresser John Lott, all good, solid wingnut names. But Number 14 is the vaguely made up-sounding Dr. Dathan Paterno, whose inclusion on this list, I'm willing to bet, is due entirely to the intercession of Dr. Gina Loudon, with whom Dr. Paterno wrote a book. (WO'C readers may remember the good doctor from this post, in which he advanced the theory that feminists don't like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because they remind them of penis-in-vagina sex.)
Top 10 Hottest Conservative Supermen in Radio category hits the expected high notes:
Along with the marquee names, though, is one that's new to me: Fingers Malloy.
Nice smirk, decent Mohawk, but I'm not gonna just take his bona fides on faith. Let's check Google for a bio...
Okey doke, then. That last line seems to say it all...
