Katy Perry's Left Breast

Katy Perry is on the cover of Vogue this month. I did what I always do when I see her on a magazine cover. I looked at her left breast.

Magazines always put the most interesting, thought-provoking questions next to Katy Perry's left breast when she is on a cover. Each of her breasts may appear to be equal at first glance. However, her left one is clearly more of an intellectual than its twin. This, of course, is why it generally attracts a higher quality of copy.

Katy Perry's Left Breast Wants to Know
This time around, however, I regret that I am disappointed. The best copy that Katy Perry's left breast was able to attract was the question Michele Bachmann: Hot or Not?

Really, now? That's the best that Katy Perry's left breast could attract? "Michele Bachmann: Hot or Not?"

That is a question that isn't worth asking, in my opinion, let alone putting on the cover of a national magazine next to Katy Perry's left breast.

Michele Bachmann, after all, is simply the less attractive, less intellectual, and less electable version of Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin won a beauty pageant; Michelle Bachmann has not and likely would not. Sarah Palin has written two books and is the subject of several hundred more; Michelle Bachmann has yet to write even one book. Sarah Palin won statewide elected office; Michele Bachmann has never held a statewide office nor has she held a leadership position in the U.S. Congress or the Minnesota Legislature.

Yes, Michele Bachmann is a less attractive, less intellectual, and less electable version of Sarah Palin.

And Katy Perry's left breast wants to know if Michele Bachmann is "hot or not?"

That, my friends, is the kind of a question that one would have expected from Katy Perry's right breast.
