Princess Peach Cheater?

Meet Peach:

Being the royal princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, Peach, a.k.a. Princess Toadstool, is always shown as a very kind and beautiful woman who cares for her people and the well being of others.  In the series, she usually portrays the princess in distress, and has been kidnapped by Bowser in almost every game. Mario and Luigi, the protagonists of the series, always seem to rescue the princess and save the Mushroom Kingdom when needed. It is confirmed on the official European Mario website that Princess Peach is Mario’s girlfriend. In Super Mario 64, Peach kisses Mario on the nose, and in Mario Tennis, she kisses Mario’s cheek. Peach will usually bake Mario a cake, kiss him, hold his hand and walk home or dance with him.
 
The evidence against Peach:

Princess Peach has gained both praise and criticism. In 2009, 1up ranked Princess Peach as the tenth best political figure in video gaming. Of course, the ever reliable Urban Dictionary have defined a “political figure” as “one who has perfected the art of lying; people that should never, ever be trusted under any circumstances, a corporate degenerate who fakes compassion to gain the trust of the general public.” Since Peach is a political figure, it stands to reason that she adheres to the definition set forth by the irrefutable authors of the Urban Dictionary. The kindness she offers could be fake, and she is not to be trusted.

In Super Mario Galaxy, Bowser has once again kidnapped Peach, and is making a giant empire galaxy in the center of the universe. Peach will send Mario/Luigi letters, Mario’s having five (5) 1-ups attached, and Luigi’s having twenty (20) 1-ups. Read that again. She sends Luigi four times the number of 1ups. Coincidence? I think not. Obviously, she cares more about Luigi’s well-being than Mario’s.

In Super Princess Peach, when Peach saves Mario, she and Luigi both run up to Mario. Peach knocks Luigi out of the way and Mario picks her up in his arms and he gives her a bunch of flowers. They both show deep devotion to each other. But is it all an act? Why would a royal princess professed by all to be “kind” and “compassionate” and “cares for her people and the well being of others” shove someone who just crossed untold dangers to help her save the man of her dreams? It does not make any sense unless she and Luigi shared far more than a dangerous trek. Maybe, a mushroom and a kiss or three?
 
The Conclusion:

Peach is a money grubby political figure who gives away 1-ups for cheap thrills.
