Seriously, there are many web designers who can also do things tidily 'under the hood'. This has a real world analogy in craft competitions, where the judges are looking for neatness and good craftsmanship even in the parts that you can't see from a superficial glance the outside.

The site you cite (!) used justified text - which I personally dislike quite a lot on screen. Browsers don't (yet) do it properly, but just increase the inter-word space, which I find ugly to look at.
The design is very ugly. And not being intimately involved with American politics, I found that the home page gave me no clues at all as to the political inclinations of the politician. So the content is not all that good either.
