Gawker gets right to the point re: Paul Ryan

Font Size:

I suppose some women are attracted to a handsome guy with dimples, piercing blue eyes, a full head of hair, and 8% body fat. And some men too, NTTAWWT.

He’s already inspired his own Tumblr meme: Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan.

But his youth is a drawback, according to Amelia McDonell-Parry at The Frisky:

He’s 42. On a personal note, there are a couple things about Ryan that are off-putting to me. First, he’s only 10 years older than me. That’s the age difference between me and the oldest boyfriend I’ve ever had. In other words, Paul Ryan is young enough to be my boyfriend. Or I’m old enough to be his girlfriend. Whatever. On one hand, I’ve always been bothered by the fact that so many of our elected officials are so old and out of touch with the youngest generations of voters. On the other hand, a VP who fits within my dating age range on OK Cupid freaks me out a little.

Youthful politicians are bad. Unless, of course, they’re Democrats.
