The Sexiest Woman Alive July 20, 2007

Posted by Pupster in Humor, Man Laws, Women Ranting.

A few months ago, Mrs. Pupster told me she had collected enough Coke rewards points for another magazine subscription, and since none of the choices appealed to her, she picked one for me. “Maxim?” I asked hopefully, “Guns and Ammo? Field and Stream? ESPN?” Uhm…no.

So, my first Esquire magazine arrived the other day (*sigh*) and I did a double take when I saw the cover:

Not a photoshop

Here is the full cover, the ‘real’ Edwards Headline is almost as bad.


1. Cuffy Meigs - July 20, 2007

Dude, you just scooped the whole VRWC with that one. All due to Coke points.

2. cranky - July 20, 2007

Oh! Man of the People. Sleeves rolled up and all that shitz.

3. Cuffy Meigs - July 20, 2007

Can I send this to Ace, Pupster?

4. Pupster - July 20, 2007

Uh, sure Cuffy…if you think it’s Ace-worthy.

5. Cuffy Meigs - July 20, 2007

You’re effing right it’s Ace-worthy. I love it.

(I was about to wrap up with an appropriate Coke slogan a la “The Real Thing” or some such, but can’t remember Coke’s latest tag line off hand. Curious. You marketing MBA’s out there please write a thesis on this sad observation).

6. forged rite - July 20, 2007

Whatever Coke’s new slogan is, it’s got to be better than ” Budweiser…..this is beer”. Really? This is beer? Well i’ll be damned, i had no idea. Thanks Budweiser!

Are you sure Esquire is a men’s magazine? Judging from Edward’s pose and the headlines surrounding him, it looks more like a parody of a men’s magazine.

7. Wickedpinto - July 20, 2007

Cuffy gets two hotarialanche’s and is the editor of all tardworthy links.

you might be getting a big big in there cuffy 🙂

before you turn that argument on me, “my” blog has hits for “retarded politics” and “retard face.”

In fact I think my britches are a little oversized at the moment.

8. Don Carne - July 20, 2007

Budweiser’s slogan should be “Good enough to get you drunk!”

9. Wickedpinto - July 20, 2007

A case of bud Ice 9 odd years ago went for less than 9 bucks, in oki.

10. Cuffy Meigs - July 21, 2007

goddamm, Wickedpinto, I don’t claim no nuthin’ special.

I just happen to be reading when some Pupster magic occurred is all, and wanted to share.

(btw, it was Sinistar/doubleplusundead that got all the the HotAir love today—good for him).

Apparently wore out a brief welcome. Bye.

11. Bart - July 21, 2007



You haven’t heard about my quest for the hairless body.

12. Sinistar - July 21, 2007

Pinto, you got me and Cuffy mixed up, but its understandable, we’re both awesome.

13. Wickedpinto - July 21, 2007

You guys need to develop a continuity of title.

Sorry cuffy.

14. Wickedpinto - July 21, 2007

How prolific is sinistar?

He’s like a ninja thief, he told me himself “Oh, I just steal shit and post it”

Thats FUNNY!

sorry about that cuffy, I might have confused him with you, cuz I think you said basicaly the same thing.

15. Cuffy Meigs - July 21, 2007

No sweat. Sin got some sweet, sweet Allah love today. He was rocking out with his penis exposed. Or something.

16. eddiebear - July 21, 2007

I used to read Esquire in Undergrad. It had some great articles and the like, but I now realize it is as useless as my company newsletter.

17. daveintexas - July 21, 2007

Oh yeah, this is sweet.

You know, he really does have great hair. I’ve never felt this way about a man before.

18. lauraw - July 21, 2007

The gleam in his eyes as he gazes heavenward…those sculpted lips…the chin that resembles a tiny little butt…

Dreamcake, that’s what he is. Dreamcake.

19. steve_in_hb - July 21, 2007

I think we should start archeological explorations under that amazing, protruding shelf of hair. Early man frequently camped in the lee of such ledges. I’m sure there is a wealth of artifacts waitng for discovery.

20. Retired Geezer - July 21, 2007

I hope somebody posts something soon to keep the streak alive or I will be forced to post Gun pRon.

21. John Edwards - July 21, 2007

archeological explorations under that amazing, protruding shelf of hair

Jealous bitch.

22. Michael - July 21, 2007

I don’t know about that, Steve, it could be dangerous. That shelf looks structurally unsound to me. We’d want to shore it up with some timbers before we sent in an archaeological team.

23. Sinistar - July 21, 2007

Huh? I’m a ninja thief? I’d say more of a shameless linkwhore…

24. John Edwards - July 21, 2007

I tape a tiny scaffolding to my forehead every night at bedtime, lest my magnificent hair shelf be crushed while I toss in my sleep.

25. ace - July 21, 2007

Wait, I don’t get it.. is this real or not? You say “the real headline is almost as bad…” so is this p-shop ?

26. PattyAnn - July 22, 2007

Ace, Pupster put the full-length magazine cover “below the fold” here
Silky Pony just had the bad luck to have that particular article title above his head.

27. sherlock - July 22, 2007

“Bad” luck?

28. See-Dubya - July 22, 2007

Is he wearing a Casio Ironman watch?

Whatever it is, it’s not part of the look he’s going for.

29. PattyAnn - July 22, 2007

sherlock, I actually did wonder who at Esquire despised Edwards.

30. drolmorg - July 22, 2007

He and hillary! ought to get together and have some really serious sex.

31. hate leftists - July 22, 2007

I just puked my pantz

32. skh.pcola - July 22, 2007

I think he’s thrusting his hips forward to make his peepee look larger, ala Willy Clinton. What an effete lil’ faggot.

33. Jerry R. Reynolds - July 22, 2007

Haha, Edwards won’t get elected becuase he is an idiot, not becuase the white man is a dying species! Its all propaganda! Where is H. Ross Perot when you need him!

34. Brent - July 22, 2007

Is anyone stupid enough to honestly believe that Mr. $1200 Haircut actually wears a cheap $10 throw away digital watch–when he’s not trying to manufacture and advance the issue that he’s a Man of the have nots? This guy is a cartoon character. As fake as a three dollar bill.

42. jmflynny - July 22, 2007

I agree with Brent, and furthermore, does he typically run around, cufflink free, with his shirt sleeves rolled up? I doubt it. It’s as staged as staged can be.

Lame-o move.

You also got linked by Ace. Plus, you’re getting a substantial number of hits from Little Green Footballs, but I don’t know where the link is. It’s probably posted in a comment thread somewhere.

48. thescoundrel - July 22, 2007

I think the picture makes him look even more like the shady Martin Sheen character, Greg Stillson, from the movie “The Dead Zone”, than he already did.

Thanks for the update Michael.

Just for the record, councilor; I thought your Global Warming post was good too.

Pupster, I found the comment you lost in the spam filter.

Thanks, Pups, but it looks like I’m going to have to offer door prizes to get a comment there, now that YOU are getting all the attention.

Oh my…

I must admit, he is an extremely charming man. I met him about a week ago, and he really was a great guy to chat with…and pretty good looking.

But the rolled-up cuffs…?

60. Man - July 22, 2007

Ehhhh, he was nice enough. But, you would think that, even a trial Lawyer, after 5 repeated warnings would be able to understand “Hands off the ass!”

61. Sarah - July 22, 2007

I just about cried when I saw this! It’s just incredible. If it were me, I would sue!

68. Ed Darrell - July 23, 2007

More fluff in the comments and snarks about Edwards than in his hair by a factor of, oh, 10 million.

Seriously, have you ever worked with the guy? Have you ever met him? He’s good, his policies are solid — and how could you ever not think him noble when he won all that money for the kid who had her guts sucked out by the swimming pool machinery, after every other white knight had failed?

69. sandy burger - July 23, 2007

his policies are solid

I would strongly dispute that, but then this thread might turn into a serious discussion about the laws of economics or something, and nobody wants that.

I’m sure John Edwards is a nice guy, though. And I cannot deny I’m envious of his good looks. (Not snark, that’s the honest truth.)

P.S. Did you know that Dick Cheney’s daughter is a lesbian? Just thought you should know.

70. daveintexas - July 23, 2007

uh, Ed? That accident happened a few weeks ago.

I’m pretty sure John ain’t practicing trial law. You wanna cite that ref please?

71. Ed's Other Brother Darrell - July 23, 2007

I understand John also got $100 zillion jillion gazillion dollars out of those evil Q-tip makers for people who didn’t understand just how far they could stick them things in their ears before they hurt themselves.

John shouldn’t be President. He should be the Leader of the Elders!!!111! just for that alone.

72. Ed Darrell - July 24, 2007

. . .but then this thread might turn into a serious discussion about the laws of economics or something, and nobody wants that.

Well, sometime, soon we pray, somebody has to stop the frat party and get to the business of making good government. Maybe no one wants to do it, but we all want to have it. Maybe it’s time to get out of the way and let the grownups do their work.

73. Ed Darrell - July 24, 2007

Uh, Dave? That accident happened years prior to John Edwards going to the Senate – the case was tried in 1996. Another accident last week? Maybe that kid has a chance to get a life, now that John Edwards made the law. Before Edwards, many kids didn’t. Here, go see the story: http://ncstormtrack.com/news/local/story/160341/

The family said that they hired Edwards over other attorneys because he alone had offered to accept a smaller percentage as fee unless the settlement was unexpectedly high, while all of the other lawyers they spoke with said they required the full one-third fee. The size of the settlement was unprecedented and Edwards did receive the standard one-third plus expenses fee typical of contingency cases. The family was so impressed with his intelligence and commitment[12] that they volunteered for his Senate campaign the next year.

From the Wikipedia bio (edited a jillion times), and see here:

74. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

Yep, I want an ambulance chaser for President! You forgot to mention his gift of channeling the spirits of dead children. And have you noticed his economic policies make Karl Marx look like a free market zealot with trickle down tendencies? Somebody told me he was going to ask for one-third of the GNP when he got elected. You think thats true?

75. A Woman - July 24, 2007
76. Dave in Texas - July 24, 2007

Ok, sorry, I confused it with this story


Who knew it happened so often?

77. geoff - July 24, 2007

More fluff in the comments and snarks about Edwards than in his hair by a factor of, oh, 10 million.

I like it when liberal apologists go the extra mile. It’s not enough to complain about snark on a snark thread, but he’s got to make a snarky comment to do it. The irony is even more painful than the hyperbolic math.

78. wiserbud - July 24, 2007

Who knew it happened so often?

What? It happened again since the sexiest woman in the world changed the law? How is that even possible?!??!

79. eddiebear - July 24, 2007

“Well, sometime, soon we pray, somebody has to stop the frat party and get to the business of making good government. Maybe no one wants to do it, but we all want to have it. Maybe it’s time to get out of the way and let the grownups do their work.”

Ed, you just described the Clinton Years. You also make a mockery of those of us with the name Ed.

80. Cuffy Meigs - July 24, 2007
81. eddiebear - July 24, 2007


I live in St. Louis City, which is next to Madison County, IL. These two jursidictions give new meaning to “Jackpot Justice”, “Ambulance Chasers” and “Judge Shopping”. The delays and near death of my daughter during her birth were attributed (I was told later) to fear the doctors and hospital had to handling her situation in the middle of the night without a certain doctor present. So pardon me if I have little sympathy for clowns like Edwards who reap zillions of dollars by attacking doctors and businesses.

82. eddiebear - July 24, 2007

And the fact that Edwards has to have his Daily Kos/DU-posting wife go on the offensive for him (and then having the gall after posting on Kos/DU to lecture others on being nice) speaks volumes of his masculinity.

83. lauraw - July 24, 2007

Hobo lolcat: there’s no way to do one that isn’t needlessly cruel.

84. Ed Darrell - July 24, 2007

Brewfan, I didn’t forget anything — read the NYT story. “Channeling” is a bit of a stretch. Edwards used the charts to tell the jury what the baby was saying — it’s the sort of channeling doctors are trained and paid the big bucks to do all the time. Edwards’ point was, the doctor wasn’t listening.

The judge said it was a stellar bunch of legal work. You can poke fun at it, but the experts say it’s great.

How many crippled kids have you won a million dollars for lately? Why not?

85. lauraw - July 24, 2007

86. Dave in Texas - July 24, 2007

Did you know he grew up poor? One time JE’s whole family went to a restaurant when he was a kid, and they sat down at the table, and then dad the millworker said they had to leave because they couldn’t afford to eat there.

That really happened. John Edwards said so.

87. BrewFan - July 24, 2007
88. daveintexas - July 24, 2007

It was a bar chart.


89. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

How many crippled kids have you won a million dollars for lately? Why not?

Furthermore, if you think altruism was Edwards motivation for his chosen line of work you are hopelessly naive. Did you ever stop and consider that a true humanitarian would not spend $400 dollars for a haircut when there are starving children to be fed?

90. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

Actually I think the bar chart would have had to have been 4D. Don’t cross the streams!

91. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

Ed Darrell you really need to switch to the Kucinich camp. He might be crazier then a bedbug, but at least he’s sincere.

92. daveintexas - July 24, 2007

“bar chart”

get it?

93. Michael - July 24, 2007

Yeah, Ed, crazy moonbat or not, Kucinich is definitely doing something right.

And Ed, just ignore Dave’s attempts to be funny.

94. Sobek - July 24, 2007

Sound policies = raising taxes. Gotcha.

I’m going to go ask Walter Mondale how that worked out for him.

95. John Edwards - July 24, 2007

And let me just say this. This is something I have never told anyone else, ever, but I think you should all know this about me.

I had a son.

He died.

Vote Edwards ’08!!

96. eddiebear - July 24, 2007

Did you know that John Edwards fights for the poor by charging $500/hour in legal fees ?

He told us so.

97. John Edwards - July 24, 2007

That’s $500/hour for that one America. You know, the one I avoid at all costs.

You should see what I’ve charged the other America! Wooooo doggie, those was some sweet, sweet fees right there.

Ooops, gotta go. Liz needs her toenails clipped. Man, you do not want to be around her if I miss one of those sessions.

98. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

Mr. Edwards, I’d like to tell you how much I admire your ability to forge strong relations with your less fortunate neighbors. It gives me confidence you’ll be able to restore America’s reputation in the eyes of the world community.


99. BrewFan - July 24, 2007

Plus thats one big sweet-ass house you got there. I bet you have it crammed full of little crippled children just so you can take care of them.

100. compos mentis - July 24, 2007

I bet you have it crammed full of little crippled children just so you can take care of them.

101. Mrs. John Edwards - July 24, 2007

My Fellow Americans,
As you may have read above, my manly and hardworking husband is under attack by right-wing hatemongers. Is this what passes for political discourse these days? Are you fed up with the tone of politics in America?

Help us fight back. Please send all you can.

Mrs. John Edwards

102. John Edwards - July 24, 2007

I bet you have it crammed full of little crippled children just so you can take care of them.

Ewwwwww, are you kidding? They all belong to that other America. Plus, Liz hates having to see all those the walkers and wheelchairs. It makes her…..uncomfortable.
