Hot or Not; the flilf edition

She looks way better in that Times photo than she does in the other image of her (the one from her bio) that’s been circulating on blogs. Maybe she does fall into some sort of flilf category for somebody (NOT me) – but only if the “F” and the “L” stand for “Female Lobbyist.”

Here are the photos in question.  The right-hand one is the from the NYtimes site.

Here’s an “expectations game” question for you –

Does it hurt McCain more, the more Iseman seems attractive?

Personally, I think it does.  We get an image of a dirty old man going after some young thing.   Maybe someone (not me, please) can do a comparison of blog postings, positive and negative, and see which blogs use which photo.

I really wish that we had an intern here at ishum that we could tell to do that kind of dirty work.

    While we’re engaging in this little interdisciplinary comparison, why not bring this fun little number into the mix?

    The more she looks like a lobbyist, the more harm she can do to McCain. And what sort of lobbyist sports a big, toothy grin like the one in that NYT photo? She looks like she’s going to prom or something. In the one on the left, you can tell that she’s muttering something crass between her teeth while trying to hold the fake smile. Everything about (except the pink suit) says hardened, jaded, cynical, tired — classic lobbyist photo. That’s the more damaging of the two.

    NYT had been sitting on this story for months and it seems like they were the only ones with the lead. So why break it now? I wonder to what extent having this “scandal” floating around american televisions affects the democratic primaries in ohio and texas. My guess would be that 11 days from now, we are going to have heard countless allegations, defenses and trumped-up nauseating controversy. Ultimately this reminds us of the clinton days (negatively) and I think it can potentially shift weight to BO. A hypothesis.

    not a bad idea. ishum, can I be your intern? please, please? I’ll bring you coffee and send you russian literature in the mail… we can be the voice of unemployed UC grads. Its a perfect time due to the media-vacuum caused by exfoliator’s contentment (guilt?).

    BTW- I take back the previous comment. Judging by the jumbo spike she got in the CNN approval meter when she discussed her personal crisises, her memory as a cheated-upon spouse is to her credit.
