Ladies' Night

At the risk of seeming trite, i've noted a very interesting trend in geopolitics: The rise of the the attractive , strong, female politico. Gone are the days of Maggie Thatcher, who was as feminine as Rosie. Even the grandma who will kick your ass, like Maddy Albright, seems outdated. Condi? Please. We are talking real women, with real influence, making waves on the world stage, not photo-op lapdogs. Behold! The 5 Hottest women in global politics.


German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Ok, so Angie isn't what we may call conventionally hot, but you know what Kissinger told Mao, "Power makes us dumpy guys look hot" or something like that. If beer and power is all it takes, then Angie's got you covered.

Yeah, so Hilary's looks change, but Damn! There's always something attractive about a inteligent woman who knows what she's talking about. And when they put just a little effort into looking good, well let's just say wonk dudes turn to puddy. Just ask Bill. If not, ask the sculptor.


Ursula Plasnik


Das Gentle Giantess aus Osterreich, The Austrian foreign minister has wowed world leaders with her style, grace, and threats to step on them if they piss her off. Who doesn't love a woman who can look down on putin, and wears breakfast menu Chuck Talylors?



Segolene Royale


Why am I including a failed presidential candidate? Well, she was a real contender in a country that is so steeped in misogyny, that the national pastime is grabass. This socialist could have looked great as prez de la republique and in a swimsuit. SegoleneRoyalBikini


Yulia Tymoshenko

Holy CRAP! She just claimed victory in the Ukrainian Presidential elections, she could claim ElvisAlive and well, and I'd believe it. In my experience the women of the Ukraine are some of the hottest in the world, and with Yulia here rockin' the stockings and the traditional do, she beckons the next age of geopolitics, THE AGE OF THE WLIF (World Leader).

Lord love the proverbial aquatic bird, but do tell us that the 'yulia divina' was wearing retro-style hot pants.

It's not like her to be going for crotch shots, even if she is all 'with it'.

And what could they be applauding? Either George Micheal's tarnished rendition of 'Melancholy Baby' or him showing the audience some spotted dick.
