The New Dark Stuff Dream Girl: Kerry Washington

Though I have seen her in a couple of movies (I Think I Love My Wife, Last King of Scotland), I can honestly say that I never really knew who Kerry Washington was until last Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher. She was the lone liberal guest on the panel (along with former WH flack Scott McLellan and former MD Lt. Governor Michael Steele) and she was amazing.

In addition to being one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, she was more than able to hold her own against the two prominent Republicans, and showed herself to be very politically astute. I could not get over how great she was. I also can't believe that she was able to keep her composure while listening to all of that bullshit coming from Michael Steele. I would not have been able to keep from either puking or punching the guy. I think I have a new favorite celebrity hottie.

I looked through her imdb page, and realized she has been in a lot of things I have seen including episodes of NYPD Blue and Psych, and the movie Ray. How did I not notice her until now? I must be slipping.

I think I may have some "research" to do over the next few weeks. I need to get myself caught up with Kerry's career up to now. In addition, she is also involved with the Creative Coalition, and other activist organizations. Why don't they have women like this in Omaha? I need to get my ass out to LA.

The Bill Maher show can be found here:

Give the show a viewing if you think you can stomach Mr. Steele. Man, I hate that guy. But for Kerry Washington...it's worth it.

Yeah, she's so fine. And well-spoken.

I hate Michael Steele, he's such a tool.
