Can a 5'8" Ophthalmologist Get Elected President?Submitted by pil45 on Fri, 06/28/2013 - 22:06
"The mainstream media will tell you that the major hurdle Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul must overcome to be his party's presidential nominee in 2016 is his foreign policy -- specifically, that he's not that into war. Well the MSM is wrong. The real hurdle Paul must clear -- climb, really, with his little paws -- is the American public's irrational and stubborn tendency to not vote for short people. 5'7" John McCain? Lost. 5'6" Michael Dukakis? Lost. And Rand Paul is short. At 5'8" Rand Paul is so short that if 5'7" Hillary Clinton wears heels (standard heels are 3 inches) and poufs her hair (which can give her another inch and a half), she'll tower over him."
Whats even worse are the comments under the article. When I read those sort of comments I realize that the US is pretty much DONE. And of course the info-graphic is laid out in a way that seems to place Hillary as "taller" than Rand, when she is not. But just look at the placement of their pictures. Tell me that was not on purpose.
