Eye of Miami's 2013 Female Beauty Contest Winner is Christine Fraga. By Geniusofdespair

Christine Fraga got the most votes in the Eye on Miami 2013 Politician's Beauty Contest in the female division. Link to the nominees.

Councilwoman Frago serves in Doral (poor kid). Anyway, congratulations Christine and we won't ask: Why is that page blank you are writing on?  We don't care about her history, as I said this is strictly superficial. The gal is pretty.

We thank all of our contestants for being good sports.

Links to contests in the past...
2011 Winner was Kirsten Jacobs
2009 Winner was Oscar Braynon
2009 Broward: Keith London
2010 was an Ethically Challenged Beauty Contest
2008: Marco Rubio was a candidate! Scott Galvin won.

Why we do our political beauty contest?

Political Beauty Contest by Eye On Miami: why it is appropriate ... by gimleteye

Eye On Miami's political beauty contest is not a joke. If we were billionaires, we would build a sports stadium; an arena to distract the public.

As the United States has shown, providing entertainments is as important today as two thousand years ago in the Roman empire.

Lacking funds, an online pageant perfectly fits our time and interest as bloggers. We try the serious route to readers' attention but we don't count on it.

Where substance lets us down, digital imagery holds us up. Our goal might be mis-interpreted. We really do care that elected officials should have the knowledge, preparation, and skills to build, fund and implement policies and programs that protect taxpayers. We do care that civilization does not descend back to savagery.

Along that line, when reality intervenes, we pray to Gods. We set our religions and beliefs against each other. When the Gods do not answer, except for silence; what then? Look good. Smart suits and lapel flags, three hundred dollar haircuts and botox, these investments are a small price to maintain the appearance that elected officials really care the next generations have the same opportunities ours have had.

The unalloyed reality is that we are more talented, by far, at making messes than cleaning up. Who looks the best, trying? You decide.

I would rather have a contest for "Most Honest" or "Least Obnoxious" or "Refuses to Accept the Massive Pension".
