Yikes

Anyone seen the recent photo snapped of Hillary Clinton? Jesus Christ.



I'm guessing this is what happens when you skip bathing in the blood of virgins for even a single night. I'm not sure whether I should be amazed she's aged so much in so little time or just be incredibly impressed with her makeup people for hiding this up till now. She looks like a completely different person. Hell, they must have to layer on the foundation like spackle to get a flat enough surface to work with. The last time I saw anyone looking this different not made up it was Nick Nolte's arrest photo.

It should be to no surprise that the blogosphere seems to be chatting about the image, with the entirely predictable initial claims that it was a photoshop job or some other fake. Of course, once it was shown to be real, the arguement seemlessly switched to how it is sexist to even comment on the image or how we wouldn't even mention it if Hillary had testicles. Frankly, I'm not so sure she dosen't have a pair of brass ones tucked into her vag, but I don't buy the whole sexism arguement regardless. It's a shocking picture not because she's a woman, but because anyone who looks like they've changed so drasticly in appearance draws comment. She looks like she aged 10 years overnight.

It's also relevant considering how much it clashes with the image she's trying to project. This picture is like finding a snapshot of Mitt Romney wearing a stained wifebeater.

On a sidenote, it's a pity I don't know anyone from Iowa. I just ran across a great caucus joke and I would love to see how it goes over on 1/3.

What's the difference between a caucus and a cactus? With a cactus, the pricks are on the outside.
