When you come right down to it, you have never seen a man so homely but what he could get some other man's wife to run off with him. But seeing the contested beauty bragging about the affair in front of a TV camera is something else.
That said, I can see a day when only homely men will run for public office. If you will consider the many cheating men you have seen commanding the evening news, you would have to admit that they are far above average in looks, income, fame and physical prowess.
Whenever they are tried by the bar of public opinion, women crawl out of the woodwork and vie to confess that, "When we were in the third grade he used to pull my pigtails."
But --- suppose the man were coyote ugly? How much would you have to pay a woman to admit that she had ever been that desperate? No, homely politicians are the wave of the future. They can cheat all they want and no woman would ever tell!
