We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

In honor of this lofty occasion, it's only fitting that we hear directly from this raving beauty, herself:
If we presume the gang at People Mag are just as liberal as the rest of industry — which wouldn't be much of a stretch — it's no wonder they fell in love with this woman. In their minds, speaking truth to power like the above earns her the honorific of Heroine.
For pics of the runners-up and the ravishing Ms. Paltrow, take your trembling hand and...
What a well-deserved honor!

Blonde power ;)
Funny that the rich who inherited money despise capitalism and prefer a society with more social stratification and a history of aristocratic elites.
Eye bleach! Eye bleach! Help, I'm going blind!
Can I sue?
Sofia gets my vote, hands down. That's a real 'takes your breath away' beauty she has. The other three aren't far behind. I give this post 4 out of 5 stars, Doc. 4/5ths of it was fabulous.
Further evidence that People Magazine is just another dead mag walking. Ms. Paltrow is easily the least attractive of that list even if using her best photo.
Agreed. With makeup, she's very 'pleasant' or 'nice' looking, but "most beautiful"? That's what brings People Mag's politics into view. Somethin' ain't right here.
"I don’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member." (Apologies to Groucho Marx)
So, um, she should just quit. Oh, and give back all the money. Or dole it out to save-one-child.
As far as the beauty? If I had a dog that looked like her I'd shave his ass and make him walk backwards.
So say one, so say we all.
Meh - I think they are all a bunch of hags - they all have personal stylists, makeup artists, blah, blah, blah and when they first get up in the morning, they look like the rest of us - ugly.
You're entirely right. I wrote Sofia and quoted you, and she said she'd come over tonight and let me be the judge in the morning if she's a "hag" or not.
I'm willing to take that chance.
I'm glad that this person who hates achievement and freedom chooses not to live in America. Too bad we can't send her fans away with her.
I learned all I needed or wanted to know about her when she named a child Apple!
Those Mac cultists simply have no self-dignity!
On the other hand, at least it beats Moon Unit or Diva Thin Muffin
That's an interesting word, "parricide".
I mean, it's interesting that you know it. :)
Did you see the above link? Actually, compared to most of the others, 'Apple' seems pretty tame. And at least some guy can claim she's the apple of his eye. As referred to, say, the diva thin muffin of his eye.
Doc, I know many strange things, for I walk by night.
And for your 6.1, I can appreciate your taking one for the team.
Well, thanks, old bud. People really don't understand the exhaustive research we bloggers put into our work.
P.S. She wasn't.
Just following in the footsteps of that great, sainted Bob Geldof whose eldest daughter is named Peaches. Yikes!
Showing my age again, reading the comments, thought everyone was talking about, Sophia Loren photo at imdb.
Every man in America passes better looking women than any of them on that list every day. I guarantee you I can go to the beach Saturday morning and find 10 girls with real natural beauty in 15 minutes.
B.S. Ms Paltrow is a poseur at best. My dear daughter is a libertarian and orders of magnitude better looking.
Paltrow isn't even the most beautiful woman in Britain by many miles. That honor goes to a very natural beauty, Ms. Florence Colgate:
Apart from the radiant Ms. Colgate, I've met far more beautiful women than Paltrow, one of them a classically gorgeous young customs inspector from the Buka region on the island of Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, the other a young Kanak school girl on a small island in the French territory of New Caledonia, who had the face of an angel.
Gwyneth Paltrow said "Brits are far more intelligent and civilised than Americans."
During my 8 year sojourn (20 years ago) there I would have agreed, but they are declining quickly, and our superficial culture is poisoning them through media and marketing. She is part of that insidious process.
