Reader Submitted Tip Our Hat: Mr. Politics

Our lovely reader April sent this to us. Honestly, we've never dated a political dude, but we'll take her word for it that he's not terrible. Take it away, April:
I had no idea politics was such a haven for hotties until I started my latest job, where I work with them all the time. Mr. Politics (see also: campaign managers, grassroots organizers, legislative aides, press secretaries or any form of professional political junkies) is slightly haggard from being overworked, but a total stud nonetheless. He's got the standard Mr. Politics haircut which is slightly shaggy and swept to the side, and his casual uniform consists of a button-down oxford shirt with an open collar and rolled up sleeves (give or take a pack of cigarettes in the breast pocket) and broken-in, sexy jeans. His business uniform is a power suit, with a tie being optional. Foxy, right? 
 
Mr. Politics is kind of a douche, but his passion for politics and complete devotion to making the world (or at least your legislative district) a better place makes him incredibly appealing. He's a smooth talker, a great flirt and funny. 
But beware: he is a transient, thus making him noncommittal to anything or anyone but his candidate. That also makes him good for a fling while in town for his campaign. He is confident, knows what he wants and goes for it. So when that's you, it rocks. But because he's overworked, he has at least one bad habit, whether it's smoking, a filthy car, chronic coffee breath, commitment issues, constantly checking his Blackberry for Google Alerts on the campaign, or all of the above. But like I said, he's sexy as hell and worth the drama. Just don't get attached because come November, he's history. Sidenote: Mr. Politics makes for a great rebound.
Ok, we can see his merits. It's kinda cute that he cares about something other than hitting the liquor store before it closes. But, we're still on the fence. He'd have to have Minor Threat on his iPod and own at least one season of Arrested Development on DVD for us to entertain the idea.

Any dudes you wanna tip your hat to? Drop us a line at hi@shmittenkitten.com and tell us why he's dreamy, steamy, and (what's a word that rhymes with steamy?) uh, not a meanie? You get the drift.

WARNING: the douchieness makes for one terrible long-term boyfriend. I wish I wasn't speaking from experience.

They do know how to dress, though. LOVE a man in nice clothes. Or in uniform. Mmmmm, a man in uniform....

i just think kennedy and that's all it takes.

as a professional ms. politics I can vouch for their hotness but they also tend to be hot messes, its so not worth it.

Also these guys tend to gain weight pretty rapidly. The diet on a campaign trail consists mostly of pizza, donuts and anything deep fried and covered in cheese. Couple that with at least 5 nights a week binge drinking your stress away minus the free time to ever hit the gym and after a few years a beer gut is an understatement.

Disclaimer for Mr. Politics: He's really passionate about his political party, and if that's the opposite party than the one you root for, your date could turn into a debate.

now if only someone could tell me HOW to get a job in Philadelphia politics...

Give Mr. Politics (i.e. -- guys like me) a chance!

Julia-- what you say is true, but we also have the discipline to run it off after the campaign is over. I gained 20 lbs in 08, but I got rid of it. So. Much. Pizza.

juliahays-- this is kinda a moot point. Most won't even go out with someone of the opposite persuasion.

I can vouch for Brady-he is one of the cute and fit ones!

(I know I have had to go on insane post-campaign diets on more than occasion)

i agree with Meg & this post!!! dated a policitical boy for almost a year, a libertarian type, which i was so into. and then when we broke up, i realized the complete amount of doucheyness that i had been involved with. good dresser, nice style, but a good liar. i wonder if your post is about my ex boyfriend, cause the outfit is dead-on... ha ha

This sounds EXACTLY like my boyfriend's best friend. He's a pretty awesome guy, but with more minimal douchyness, though I do see it peak out at times.
