Voting on looks?

A friend of mine and I were talking about who we were voting for since neither of us have 100% committed to one or the other. During our discussion, my friend said probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Not sure if he was being serious or not, but he said that he was voting for McCain/Palin becuse he likes to look at Sarah Palin? In other words, he's basing his vote for the next president based on the attractivenss of his vice president.

I guess he's forgotten that being vice-president means you all but disappear unless needed and she'll never be in the same place as McCain due to security reasons. Boy, I tell you, some people just don't think!

I hope he was joking. Not to make it sound like I'm against the Republican nominees, but these are just some repugnant reasons to vote for someone!

Voting based on looks? That's irresponsible! Then let Britney Spears or Paris Hilton be the next president since they look better than Palin (and younger too) : )
