Um, ew.

As you may or may not know, Thune is the junior senator from South Dakota, the man who beat Tom Daschle in an epic campaign five years ago. The first thing everybody knows about him is that he is tall (6 feet 4 inches), tanned (in a prairie, sun-chapped sort of way) and handsome (John McCain jokes that if he had Thune’s face he’d be president right now). If you wanted a Republican with the same general body type and athletic grace as Barack Obama, you’d pick Thune.

Except he's, ya know, not black.

John Cole puts it best: "...why do so many profiles of Republican presidential candidates read like soft-core gay male pornography (not that there’s anything wrong with that)?"
