Sex sells

From NRO’s Media Blog, we find poor John Edwards still can't catch a break:

Last year's worst selling issue of Esquire: John Edwards on the cover.

The best selling: Angelina Jolie

I suppose this isn’t entirely surprising. Jolie was named FHM Magazine’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2005 -- and the old adage is “sex sells”.

Further, this helps shed light on the attempt by Esquire editors to convince readers that Edwards was, in fact, not only a woman, but the Sexiest Woman Alive.

The editors have obviously been around the block a time or two.

Unfortunately it didn’t work, since the Edwards cover still underperformed all other issues for the year.

But give them an 'A' for effort.

Dock them for plausibility, though. We’d say a 'B-'

JUST ASKING: Why is the pic of the cover on the Huffington Post cropped so that it omits the “Sexiest Woman Alive” text?
