What is beautiful that is also ugly?
Ann Coulter. She is clearly on Lucifer’s payroll. She’s distractingly attractive, especially for a Republican, which makes the things she says even more repugnant. Bill Maher is enamored of her; have you seen her on his show? He’s usually relentless, but she turns him into a puppy dog.
What have the Kardashians done for the cause of beauty?

Who is the most beautiful member of Congress?
It used to be Anthony Weiner; he was the total package. Orrin Hatch has very beautiful eyes.
