Conservative Babes

I've noticed that (outside of Hollywood) most of the hot looking women in the public eye are conservative? I start of course with Laura Bush, then Peggy Noonan, Dr. Laura Schlessinger (showing my age here), Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, all the Fox News babes, lawyer/blogger Carol Platt Liebau, ... so many beautiful women, so little space.

Will Franklin called our attention to this phenomenon in a great blog piece called The Babe Theory of Political Movements, which holds that where there are hot babes, an exponential number of men will be present. Will notes that there is something fundamental and universal about a beautiful woman. He calls this the universal sign language of babealiciousness.

I remember a lot of good looking hippies and peace activists in the 60's but in recent years as the left's electoral success has diminished, the concept of "hot left-wing chicks" has gone from a nostalgic abstraction to a flat-out laughable oxymoron.

I believe that Will has nailed it. Now, just in time for Christmas, the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute has offered it's 2006 Great American Conservative Women Calendar. In conjunction with this hot babe calendar, the Institute has just published it's list of the Top 10 Women in Conservative Movement. Here are the winners.

1. Ann Coulter

I love how the writer must list how many children these women are mothers to. No one ever gives a flip about how many kids a man has. I guess the point is that they've squeezed out some kids and they're still hot?
