5 Amanda Carpenter
Objectively, you would think that the author of a pro-GOP book titled “The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy’s Dossier on Hillary Rodham Clinton,” would be a rotund, balding man in his late 50s, likely named either Gordon or Rich. You would not expect it to be the work of a scarlet-haired beauty barely past her 30th birthday. But indeed Amanda Carpenter is the prolific author of that book and countless articles, blog posts and columns—all written from a distinctly right-wing worldview. When not appearing on Fox News or penning pieces for the Washington Times, she writes speeches for Tea Party darlings Jim DeMint and Ted Cruz.
4 Ann Coulter
Look, we know she is the spawn of some horned, fire-breathing goat creatures, and maybe we wouldn’t be unhappy to see her fall off a tall ladder while holding several buckets of paint, but frankly Ann Coulter is pretty hot. She’s tall, she’s blond, she’s lean, and yes, she sucks, and yes she revels in the shock value game, willing to say pretty much anything regardless of its relationship to fact as long as it is anti-Left Wing but… still hot. Dammit.
3 Kirsten Powers
You gotta hand it to Kirsten Powers: a Democrat employed by Fox News essentially just to to give the other pundits a punching bag, as she spends most of her professional life getting knocked around by her political polar opposites. Powers supported the Affordable Care Act, opposes the death penalty and supports marriage equality for same-sex couples. So she is almost always at odds with those around her, yet somehow she still manages to look great day in, day out!
2 Alicia Menendez
This Harvard-educated thirty year old writer, commentator and journalist has already achieved more in her life than many people twice her age could ever hope to do… and to top it off she’s a dark-haired beauty. Being the daughter Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey, probably didn’t hinder Alicia’s meteoric ascent through the world of politics, but she clearly has relied mostly on her own intelligence, motivation and just maybe a bit on her looks.
1 Megyn Kelly
What Fox News commentator Megyn Kelly lacks in anything approaching a legitimate spelling of her given name, she makes up for in being a hot blonde. While Kelly at times acts as a mouthpiece for the right-wing juggernaut by which she is employed (especially when it comes to discussion of a certain 44th president), she also often stands up for issues about which she cares, such as women’s rights and the ability of same-sex couples to create wonderful families.
