Don't You Wish Your Elected Official Was Hot Like Me?

Imagine a legislature full of politicians as hot and charming as me. Just a (crack) pipe dream? Not any more.
Finnish voters searching for trustworthy politicians to elect in March polls can now use an Internet Web site to summon up photographs of candidates who resemble themselves.

The Intopii computer firm says its Web site was inspired by studies suggesting people are more likely to trust those with similar features to their own; but it is being offered largely for fun and to demonstrate its software.

Voters can feed their own pictures onto the website http://www.naama.fi furnished with some 800 images of candidates for March parliamentary elections. The software identifies common characteristics and gives closest matches. Candidates include former Miss Universe Pohtamo, and former Miss Europe Riitta Vaisanen.
