Breaking News: A 60-Year-Old Woman Has the UNMITIGATED TEMERITY to Look 60 Years Old

It seems like everyone on Maude's green earth is emailing me about what's currently running on Drudge's front page:

Now, first of all, I want to make it clear that it doesn't matter a whit to me—and shouldn't matter to anyone—what Hillary looks like. If she had one eyeball hanging out of its socket and a third leg growing out of her back, I wouldn't give a flying fart. I'd still agree with her on some shit and disagree with her on other shit, and I'd still vociferously defend her right to not be judged on her appearance.

That said, this is also just another piece of dogshit journamalism typical of Drudge, because the picture isn't even particularly representative of what Hillary looks like.

Here are other pictures taken the same afternoon (Saturday) while Hillary was doing door-to-door campaigning:

And here's a picture of her being introduced at a town hall meeting in Iowa earlier today:

Yeah, she looks like she might keel over from exhaustion at any moment. Meanwhile, if she were a dude five years older who looked like this:

…manly men like Drudge and Chris Matthews would be falling all over themselves to gush about how handsome he is and wax inquisitive about how he smells.

Maybe, just maybe, the media could give Hillary a fucking break and allow her, as a 60-year-old woman, to look like a 60-year-old woman, for which other 60+-year-old women, and those of us who will one day be 60-year-old women, would be extremely goddamned appreciative.

But something tells me that ain't gonna happen.
