That nice looking specimen with the high cheekbones over there is S.E. Cupp, and if you don’t know who that is, don’t feel bad, because I didn’t either until I wrote this sentence.
She’s the new “It Kid” over here on the political right, a twenty-something New York City Republican who apparently does lots of cable news commentary and who has recently co-authored a book, “Why You’re Wrong About the Right.”
S.E. Cupp comes to our attention because she’s just penned an appreciation of a former Arkansas governor for Slate Magazine, in which she launches into confessional mode and admits that she has a crush on Mike Huckabee:
New York City may be teeming with legitimate heartthrobs—hunky model/actor types with more “obvious” good looks. But I go for subtle sex appeal, and the pretty boys are a dime a dozen. I need something real. I need something Arkansan. I need something that lived in a trailer when his house was being redecorated. So move over, Chace Crawford and Zac Efron. There’s a new stud in town, and his name is Mike Huckabee.
I read the whole piece and I think it’s only semi-tongue-in-cheek. I think.
This is disturbing because this chick is kinda hot. It was one thing when we had that video a couple of weeks ago from that woman who breathlessly admitted to having dreams about Huckabee—she looked like the type who had way too many cats and would get a kick out of Huck’s Saturday night FOX News show. That was disturbing enough, but I could accept it, because it made sense on its own terms.
But this chick? This I just cannot process.
