Taking the red / blue divide to its logical extreme, SexiestParty.com asks the most relevant question in this election cycle: Who's sexier? Democrats or Republicans?
'We thought we'd get right to the point,' jokes Kurt Michael, co-founder of the website. 'Sex and sex appeal have always been a part of politics, but with so much attention being paid to Palin's looks and Obama's charm, it's become a national obsession. We're providing a place that lets people revel in sexiness."
Where we live, what we drive, how we style our hair, even the types of coffee we drink are all politically charged. Rather than resisting the trend, SexiestParty provides a forum free from intellectual pretense, where appearance takes prominence as the central issue.
Party loyalists upload their photos to be rated by the web-based masses. Users do not know the political affiliation of the people they are rating until after they cast their vote.
"The site's playful and satirical, of course, but still a focal point of real competition. Our users see the fun in it all, but take their and their party's ratings seriously."
Currently, the Republicans and Democrats are neck-and-neck. It remains to be seen if traditional party lines will be maintained or if the site will show that sex appeal can be bipartisan.
"At the very least, we've given folks a good excuse to look at hot people on the Internet."
SexiestParty.com addresses the central issue to this and every other election cycle in history. Who's more doable, Democrats or Republicans? Through the democratic medium of 5-star ratings, SexiestParty.com lets America's voice be heard.
