Crush of the Year 2008: Christina Hendricks

This year I turned the selection of the Crush of the Year entirely to the Micah World readership and your choice was clear: Christina Hendricks.



On "Mad Men" and in her other acting projects, Ms. Hendricks exudes class, grace, and pulchritude. My fear is that now that she's in the national spotlight, she'll be pressured into conforming to Hollywood's whacked out standards of beauty and go on the Jennifer Connelly Figure Killing Diet. Let's hope not.



For once, my personal favorite candidate was also that of the electorate. Big Red had a mandate with six votes (seven, if you count jasdye's mention of her while abstaining) while Alicia Witt and Gov. Sarah Palin tied for second place with two votes each. Several other women received single votes, but I'm sure they would say that just being nominated is an honor.



A bust (*snicker*) of Christina will be placed in the main corridor of the Hall of Crushes, along with previous honorees Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson, and Shandi Finessey. So, kudos to you, Christina Hendricks.

Good point. Er, points.

She couldn't have done it without the help of the SBSC.

Hopefully now that our country has chosen a firecrotch, we can move forward as a nation.

lamest crush of the year ever, seriously she would have been in like my bottom 5 votes. i still dont know who she is, but boy is the girl pasty.

thats what happens when you leave it up to the great unwashed masses.

Hey it's LaVar Burton!

I wondered when the sore losers would poke their loser heads out from under their loser rocks. Funny to read these sour grapes from the guy who was pulling for Governor Palin (now a two-time loser.) Pleeeeease, given a side-by-side comparison, I think most hetero american men would pick Christina and her Ivory Twins over the Folksy Guv'nor and her Worn-Out Cooter.

Viven de largo la ganadora pelirroja y su pecho enorme!

looking at these photos, ill... (and i mean that like, 'yuck. she looks like an overexposed porn star w/ bad boob jobs,' not as in, 'that's the sh*t!').

CW - Why you gotta hate? She's going to be sister-in-law someday.

spydrz - I'm going start looking at "Reading Rainbow" in a whole new light from now on.

SBN1 - Had I not left this election up to the proletariat, Gov. Palin would've been my second choice. Had she actually won the VP spot, I may have moved her up to #1.

jasdye - Hey, you kinda sorta voted for her.

A worn out Cooter? Like the time he had to stay up all night fixin' the General Lee?
