Politicians and stupid remarks go together like 90-degree days and Frappucinos. But you’d hope that in 2010, politicians would know better than to sling mud about each other’s gender. Recently, Jane Norton, a U.S. Senate candidate from Colorado, made the sexist comment that her opponent, Ken Buck, was not “man enough” to criticize her himself and instead had others do his dirty work. Then yesterday at a fundraiser, Buck sniped back with a remark about Norton’s femininity — by way of her footwear.

Well, because aside from still having their good looks, they possess the X-factor that only comes with age: confidence. The thought is that by the age of 31, a woman has let go of insecurities and feels comfortable in her own skin. This includes having a more authentic sense of style and radiating a feeling of beauty. I don’t wanna brag, but if this survey is correct, this should be a very, very good year for me. [And me! -- Editor] And my apologies to the gorgeous 20-somethings I may have insulted. You’re hot and you know it. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
