Thanks to a filing away of his Herrera cozy-up, this old soldier can cancel his Viagra prescription.
State Rep. Jaime Herrera is locked in a tight race for the Republican nomination to vie for outgoing Congressman Brian Baird's Third District seat in Southwest Washington. A former basketball player, Herrera is tall. She's also curvy, pretty, and meticulously groomed.
In a word, Herrera is hot. Not "hot for a politician" (i.e., not hot) hot, but broadcast babe hot (i.e., hotter than hot). So hot that she should redo her campaign photo gallery to resemble a Maxim spread, swapping out that red polo for a red bikini.
Herrera's hotness is, in fact, revolutionary.
Female politicians are typically so tough on the eyes that objectifying them seems almost progressive. Don't agree with me? Consider, then, that Washington's own Maria Cantwell recently garnered HuffPo's top ranking as the sexiest Senator in all the land. Or that Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge actually made some guy's list of the 10 hottest dames in Congress, besting Cantwell. We're hoping that's a joke, but considering Fudge's fusty foes, we doubt it is.
Herrera, meanwhile, is no joke. So serious is she about instantly rising to the top of the hot heap that she's rumored to have made Sarah Palin, previously the only female pol for whom the "hot for a politician" qualifier was not necessary (remember, Tipper Gore and Michelle Obama have never actually held elective office), schedule an appointment for Lasik surgery.
Hot for teacher simply won't do anymore, now that Herrera's bringin' the heat.
