People magazine names new Sexiest Man Alive: Donald Rumsfeld
I'm SOOOO not joking.
But I am slightly stretching the truth. To be exact, People bestowed the dubious honor of "Sexiest Man Alive" on bland boring boy Ben Affleck. But they really did declare everyone's favorite war-mongering Bush cabinet member one of the 23 "Sexiest Men Alive" (along with George Clooney and Enrique Iglesias). This soon after they named Republican Ken Doll (now Massachusetts governor-elect) Mitt Romney one of the "50 Sexiest People in the World."
(Presumably next year's "Sexiest Men Alive" issue will feature Information Awareness Office chief John Poindexter?)
Not that I had any respect for the editors of People in the first place. But the idea that a real live group of editors got together and actually decided that a bloodthirsty fascist like Rumsfeld was crushworthy is just dizzying. You certainly won't catch me posting any magazine photos of him in my locker...
(Thanks go to Yves for bringing this to my attention.)
