Why Conservative Women Are So Pretty


The women of the Right are allowed to believe things that the women of the Left are not. It sets them free to be themselves. And that's beautiful.

Three years ago I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference and was struck by something I later concluded was probably a figment of my imagination. This year I returned, and, rather than having my recollection dispelled, it was confirmed.

The young women who attend CPAC are spectacular. No kidding: What's up with this concentration of incredibly attractive young, conservative women? It's noticeable and remarkable. They are beautiful and stylish in the way French women often are, which is to say in their own way, not in a conforming or predictable way. They all look like the girl the high school quarterback wants to date, and they are confident, relaxed, and smart, joking amongst themselves.

This becomes even more glaring when juxtaposed with the young guys, who all seem to be trying out for the part of the overtaxed congressional aide in this season of "Veep": wrinkled dark suits with scuffed brown shoes, power-walking this way and that, their noses buried in their smartphones, and that's not even to mention an alarming incidence of pillow head (not a lot, but, let's be honest, no pillow head is the goal).

I spent years in the photography business, which causes me to reflexively notice what things look like. On the Left, however, you can't say these things just because they may be true, or, more accurately, especially if they're true. In other words, okay, I noticed. So sue me.

This can't be an accident. Something must be driving it. So I began to ponder it, and here's the best I can come up with.
