It's not that hard to find these things, but even the journalists who try to be neutral are far too lazy to do their homework.
That said, there certainly are some lovely ladies running for the GOP this year. I hope they are as savvy and determined as they sound right now, because they have a tough row to hoe.
It's funny, you see more and more of this in what passes for journalism today, even though it is arguably much easier to do fact-checking and basic research because of the Internet as compared to back in the old days when these resources did not exist.
Yes Don, and Rula Lenska was doing VO5 hair commercials; but nobody knew who she was. Saturday Night Live and Johnny Carson made routines of ‘who in the hell is Rula Lenska?’
I remember, she had red, Farrah Fawcett type hair, and had a DEEP voice.
Kelly LeBrock had the orginal ‘trout pout’ and was the one who said ‘don’t hate me because I am beautiful.’
Kelly LeBrock was indeed featured in a Pantene commercial and spoke the line Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful. The line was first used, however, in a Rula Lenska ad.
Reading the other posts and re-reading the Wikipedia entry, and googling “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful,” it appears that two ikons of the pop culture have been mixed together.
BTW Having googled the expression, I can report that references to “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” are all over the place. There are business women who think it creates a “glass ceiling.” Actresses who think it precludes them from getting parts. Even, women who think their husbands cheat on them because they are so attractive.
