Sean Hannity – ‘Paul Ryan Has Become A National Sex Symbol’ (AUDIO)
Seems a bit of a bold statement to make. I guess, though, when you’re used to conservatives being amazingly unappealing, you take what you can get. The GOP desperately needed some sex appeal, and conservative pundits simply cannot stop touting his physique. I haven’t seen anything that impressive, but as an immoral liberal I guess I must see a lot more half-naked people and have a better base to judge from.
Sean Hannity said, “Ryan’s selection sent a jolt of electricity, and the conservative base, including myself, were energized by it. It allows Romney to now appeal to younger voters. In one week, he’s become a national sex symbol.” [Emphasis added]
It looks like ol’ Hannity might have revealed a bit more there than he intended…purely speculation, of course. It is interesting to note that the only people who are looking at Paul Ryan as a sex symbol are conservatives. Coincidentally, the only people looking at Ryan as a viable candidate instead of a clear danger to our nation are also conservatives. When the right-wing needs to make a blatant appeal to emotion in order to try and increase the likability of a candidate, you know they’re getting desperate. Paul Ryan represents a fiscal danger to our country with his laughable ideas for the budget, and trying to make him appeal to voters through bragging about sexual appeal is quite laughable as well.
This is, in the end, just another statement of how incredibly shallow the right-wing often is – after all, studies have shown conservatives to be lazy thinkers.
