(Newser) – Christine O'Donnell, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, and Nikki Haley: This is not your daddy's Republican party anymore—it's the party of the hot mama grizzly, writes Tom Junod for Esquire. It might be a rather superficial conclusion, but "the Democratic Party is boring. And its women are either old or unattractive." And "this is not a superficial problem in a country that has embraced superficiality."

America elected Obama the rock star, then woke up in bed with a professor, and, "left for dead," the right's embrace of sex appeal is guided by the genius insight that instead of "no-drama," what Americans want "is drama and nothing but." Junod recommends Obama study up—make Hillary Clinton VP candidate in 2012, "and then have a wall-banging affair with her. Everybody will get what they want. They can be as wonky as they want to be, and we, the American electorate, will finally get the reality television of our dreams."
