Now we’ve seen just about everything from the loony left. They can’t decide whether Comey is the worst person in the world or the next leftist sex symbol.
Aren’t you glad you’re not a liberal?
News Busters has the story:
In a piece that takes itself entirely too seriously, Daily Beast writer Lizzie Crocker tried to make the case that Comey wasthe “sex symbol America needs right now.”
While watching Comey’s testimony last week before the Senate, “Many Americans confessed to unexpected feelings of lust,” she touted. “There was a collective stirring-of-loins across America: Comey was…hot?” she added, before getting more vulgar.
Here’s just some of what they wrote about Comey:
There was also something raw and appealing about his ability to be vulnerable without losing his composure…He was resolute, too, but not without a sense of humor… And it was hard not to be charmed by his admission that he wished he hadn’t broken a date with his wife to have a dinner date with Trump.
And so the 56-year-old, fired FBI director became a very unlikely sex symbol. Sure, he has a somewhat peaked complexion and under-eye bags that look like half-inflated tubular balloons. But he’s handsome, and as with all sex symbols–both the unlikely ones and the obvious ones–he embodies certain qualities in society that we all lust after: integrity, emotional complexity, and quiet but certain confidence.
That combined with his imposing physical stature gives him the same alluring masculinity as sex symbols like Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice (particularly Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice).
