I think we can all agree that what this country’s most important politicians are truly missing more than anything is the dramatic styling and beautiful makeup the glitz pageant competitors (as seen on such fine programming as Toddlers & Tiaras) have perfected over the years. Thanks to the power of retouching we can imagine how that would look.
