WASHINGTON (CNN) – Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm said she won't apologize to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for her crack at last weekend's Gridiron Dinner that the former Republican vice presidential candidate "really set back the cause of hot governors."
At the exclusive Washington dinner on Saturday, which was packed with top elected officials, Granholm also used the quip to needle Pennsylvania's governor. "You know where I'm coming from, Ed Rendell," she said.
Good line, but I'm not sure Granholm is a "hot" governor. Though she had some quirks, with her mouth shut Palin was actually attractive, especially if she controlled the "crazy" eyes. Granholm may qualify as one of the more attractive female politicians, but that's really a relative thing. There aren't that many attractive female politicians.
This is not to demean female politicians or focus only on their looks and not their brains. I dare say that even with the overwhelming majority of politicians being men, most women don't find much to look at there, either.
