Fortunately, Catholic blogger Matthew Archbold has already done that for me. (Thanks to Pundit and Pundette for putting me on to this with her post, "Hotness Gap")
"I mean it's been great all these years telling the libs that we're more moral than them but when we drop on them that we're hotter, that'll hit them where it hurts. Oh yeah."Even more telling is this:
"When I was a young atheist idiot liberal I always thought conservative women were just prettier and more self confident but I think the idea has now gained a national and undeniable prominence.""Prettier" or not, what makes a conservative woman hotter isn't her looks it's her gumption.
By necessity, a conservative woman must do the legwork to establish the ideological foundations of her political philosophy. She can't sit idly by like the liberal girls and be
Too, there's no question that conservatives have been playing defense in the culture war for quite some. A conservative woman has to fight to hold her ground, rather than merely latch on to the coattails of the currently in-vogue political views.
Having to defend your political ideology against the prevailing will of popular opinion may make you an underdog, but it makes you a fighter. And, that's hot.
Obviously, not all conservative chicks are feisty with sound evidence and reasoning for their political persuasions, and not all liberal ladies are spineless and unable to support their political beliefs. I'm generalizing here.
But I've known plenty of women on both sides of the political spectrum and have found that the conservative ones are often able to express the canons of their political persuasion better than their liberal counterparts. Not because they are more intelligent, per se, but because they have not been able to piggyback on the ideas of their professors, the media, and culture at large.
Knowing what you believe and why and holding to it with conviction despite the consquences (see Carrie Prejean as Exhibit A) is hot no matter who you are, conservative or liberal. That's the self-confidence that Archbold was talking about.
Of course, that fact that we're right (as commenter Smitty says our views are formed from "fundamental existential truths") doesn't hurt our hotness factor either.
Update: It's not just conservative women who are hotter.
