UPDATE: The truth comes out. Geithner’s brother is a VP at People Magazine.
Far as we can tell, merely being associated with Barack Obama makes you beautiful in the eyes of the media. The man’s aura is so powerful that anyone who stands near him is enveloped in a magical cloud of beauty.
Seriously. That media bias is the only conceivable way to explain the selection of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner as one of People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People.
Tim Geithner is beautiful? C’mon, he looks like the balding president of the neighborhood chess club. He looks like the guy who took his cousin to the high school prom. He looks like he dreams of being cool enough to wear a pocket pen protector. He looks like he’s afraid the jocks are going to give him another wedgie in gym class. For god’s sake, man, he looks like he shares DNA with Beavis.
Oh, well, at least People used a little judgment and left Janet Napolitano off the list.
