So there is talk of some sort of puffy-faced person maybe running for Senate in Kentucky, but apparently her own party is wary of how puffy her face is and how that will play with the voters. They understand that culturally, we’re not at a place where we’re ready to elect people with puffy faces to high office. Maybe one day that will happen — probably with future generations — but for now people just don’t trust puffy faces. Mitch McConnell knows this and is already working it into ads.
“McConnell 2014: He has a normal face.”
So now the Democrats are desperately trying to find a normal-faced candidate they can coalesce around. And then what happens to puffy face? I don’t know. It’s just not a puffy face world.
