The Nose: Run Tell Obama, George Jepsen Is Smoking Hot

Today on the Nose, we're going to talk about looks. 

By now you probably know that President Obama stirred up a tempest this week when, after praising California Attorney General Kamala Harris as brilliant, dedicated and tough, he called her "the best-looking attorney general in the country."
 
He meant it in a light-hearted way, but some critics have jabbed at him for including physical appearance in an appraisal of a woman's job performance.
 
Meanwhile, former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford surprised people by winning a primary and becoming the nominee for a seat in Congress.
 
Accepting the nomination, he was accompanied by his Argentine fiancee, who may or may not be good looking. His opponent will be Stephen Colbert's sister, whom a Republican official called "not a bad looking lady." What's up with looks?
