Go home, grandma – you’re embarrassing me

This is Carolyn Maloney, politician. She was mentioned in a Breitbart article today. I don’t know anything about her, but she’s a Democrat from New York, so hisssss. I’m here to be cruel about her fashion choices.

Why do older female public figures do this look? See it in color. Blonde hair, red lipstick, glommy eyelashes. She doesn’t look like a young woman, she looks like the mummified corpse of a young woman left out in the sun.

I won’t say it’s only Democrat women who do this, but they’re the ones that come to mind: Hillary, Barbara Walters, Nancy (except not blonde).

Maloney is 76. That’s about the median age of my group of friends (why am I always the youngest in my social circle?). A couple of them color their hair. There are some smart dressers and some more casual, but they all look age-appropriate like the tasteful old ladies they are.

Why would a woman seeking power aspire to look like a bimbo, anyway? If I wanted to rule the world, I’d go to my stylist and say, “make me look mean. Like, BIG mean.” Like, pull my gray hair back in a mean ol’ bun and give me a mean ol’ Hugo Boss greatcoat and a riding crop. I want to look like a Bond villain.

I’d vote for that in an old woman.

Mad Maxine also has this look. And Maxine also has a strange resemblance to The Predator.

Even the Iron Lady dyed her hair and wore the red lipstick of her youth, but at least her eye makeup was age-appropriate. Also, I am totally stealing “She doesn’t look like a young woman, she looks like the mummified corpse of a young woman left out in the sun.” A perfect description of a disturbingly large number of clueless older women.

She’s a nasty-looking thing, and a nasty pol to boot. There’s only one thing she’s got going for her, and that’s the opportunity to knock Jerry Nadler out of Congress.

OK, yes, she’s nasty. But Nadler is EEEEEVIL.

p.s. Yes, I know the etymological myth that the word “nasty” comes from the political cartooning of Thomas Nast, but I’m sure Herr Nast would have enjoyed artistically eviscerating both Maloney and Nadler. He despised Democrats.

Something like this, Stoaty? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeXAojTEkvg

I can’t stand Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, but she is always impeccably dressed and her hair is flawless. The problem is when she opens her mouth. But her constituents adore her.

I used to live in Ron Paul’s congressional district, which was right next to SJL’s, so local news usually mentioned both of them in the same reports. They couldn’t have been anymore different. SJL spent every last dime she could get her hands on, and Ron Paul wrote the book on fiscal conservativism. And for what it’s worth, I never saw Ron Paul unshaven or needing a trim 🙂

While scanning a list for review
To find out what next I might do
For a good DP pick
To nab the next dick
And sadly I’m without a Clu

SJL – I’m often more than a little puzzled by a black Democrat congresswoman with a name remembering the two most notable generals of the Confederacy.

As to the women, Jerry Nadler would look about like Carolyn if he put on some red lipstick and a blonde wig. In fact, has anyone seen them in the same room at the same time?

Don’t forget slave owner and Democrat Party founder Andrew Jackson.

SJL’s name also memorializes an enslaver of black people.

Col Kleb was rumored to be a forebear of Jen Psaki based on her gasoline-treated hair. (Credit to Chris Plante of WMAL radio.)

Heysoos Mary and Hoser!

Gen Psaki!? What birth years constitute this new menace to truth?


I’d like a bottle of hot Jen Saki and an order of Chirashi Don. (Ewwwwwwww, just saying it…..it’s enough to put a man off hot saki forever)

I’m with you.
At least go for the Mom of Mom’s Friendly Robot Company look.
