Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty. ---Derek Zoolander.

The campaign of Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is running as the Democrat candidate for Senate from Kentucky, was in a rush to differentiate her from President Obama's new EPA regulations on coal. Apparently they didn't have time to check out the background of the "coal miner" whose picture they used in their initial newspaper ad run. It turned out that he was a European male model, hardly the coal mining type. The crew of Morning Joe had a good laugh featuring the model in his many roles such as doctor, engineer, soldier, student, carpenter, and painter.


Perhaps the Grimes campaign should strive for more authenticity in its updated coal ads by featuring an American male model such as Derek Zoolander. The upside to that is that Zoolander actually did work as a coal miner for a day as you can see below:



Also you can see in this final video more proof that Zoolander is the embodiment of a blue collar coal miner...sort of.
