Anyone else think Karen Finney is HOT

I need to go back to work. Tamron Hall, Alex Wagner,... if I don't get a gig soon Chris Matthews might be attactive.

To be clear, Chris is in front of Andrea Greenspan.

2. I liked her short, sassy haircut of a few years ago.

Not so much of a fan of this latest look. She did short and sassy well - and that isn't a look everyone can carry.

Personally I like that Lebolt spokesman guy. Fabulous eyebrows.

Illustration. Plus he told Mittney to f*** off today so he looks hotter.

beautiful doesn't hurt -- but it's her intelligence that makes her
attractive imo. There are some very pretty ladies who become
ugly as soon as they open their mouths.

22. I think she uses a relaxer

She is, by the way, biracial.

For me this is very personal. My father, who is African American, is from Virginia. The Finney name comes from the man who once owned my family as slaves. My mother, Mildred Lee, is the great, great, great niece of Robert E. Lee, or "the General," as he is referred to by my family. I am therefore the great, great, great, great niece of General Lee. That is my American story, a mixed race heritage that I am proud of, just as Virginia, the South and our country has a mixed history.

26. I haven't seen a phone like that in eons! That woman is a performance artist, apparently..

That picture is probably not terribly recent....

Karen Finley (born 1956 in Chicago) is an American performance artist, whose theatrical pieces and recordings have often been labelled "obscene" due to their graphic depictions of sexuality, abuse, and disenfranchisement. She was notably one of the NEA Four, four performance artists whose grants from the National Endowment for the Arts were vetoed in 1990 by John Frohnmayer after the process was condemned by Senator Jesse Helms under "decency" issues. Finley is currently a professor at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

I had to look her up; never heard of her.

because it was in a large venue, it was not about shocking people, and I was hoping for something a bit more risque like the notorious yam performances. She's very entertaining but has calmed down considerably

42. Why do people say somebody is "hot"???

I think it's a stupid term, like "hottie".

I prefer "hot number", as in "My Mom was a hot number back in the day".

Since I like men and I'm straight, I will vote for Keith Olbermann and Lawrence O'Donnell in the men in news department.

Martin Bashir is very bright and wears very sharp looking suits.

45. The funny thing about Keith Olberman

is that he became more attractive with advancing age. Have you ever seen a photo of him when he was a sportcaster? He was not as handsome when he was younger, in my opinion.

I personally don't mind "hot" and I know I have said it before, myself. It is so mainstream, there is no point in fighting it.
