The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Thighs matter

I am normally unconcerned about how much an actor resembles the person being portrayed — both Alanis Morissette and Morgan Freeman can do God convincingly, I think — but no way am I going to believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton has legs like Sharon Stone's.

The thought of Hillary doing that scene from Basic Instinct has already given me nightmares -- which I now happily share with you.

I shudder at the thought of Stone portraying Hillary doing the "leg-crossing thing."

On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the Senator wields a mean ice-pick.

She'll have to put padding on her ankles to pull it off. Hillary's ankles were never meant to be anywhere near high heels... and especially not those cute little heeled thongs Kevin likes so much.

Well, if Nicole Kidman can inflate her schnozz to play Virginia Woolf, surely Sharon Stone can pad out her gams — but it still seems like such a waste.
