That Awkward Stage

Jason Reed's above photo was posted late last night on Yahoo News, but there's so much to love about it, I had to include it here. It's counterintuitive to move as far away from your subject as possible, but I'm glad Reed did, because he's totally captured Condi's place on the world stage. Bravo!

I also like it because Condi looks like a herm. Wheee! All we need to complete the illusion is a giant phallus sticking out of the front of the podium.

EDIT: Also this morning, is it appropriate to call Condi a rapist? Frank Gaffney says yes!

poor little arrogant thing, I would almost feel sorry for her were she not a war criminal and a total fraud.

Maybe her hairdresser still loves her...

Herms! What a fun thing to know about! Thanks, Princess, those are terrific.

Happy herm and wistful herm! I don't think I'd ever seen a statue with that Babylonian style beard that ever expressed any emotion at all.

Some smokin' hot opinions in that Gaffney piece--ouch!

LOVE the herms. The Lecondel herm, I'm not so sure about....

What would happen to the hairdo alert system if Condi were to adopt the herm hairstyle?

Matty Boy said...

We're all modern people. Couldn't it be time for the vajajay herm, and wouldn't Condi be the perfect first candidate?

Wow, I haven't thought about herms in a long time. Well, those on Greek sculpture, anyway.

P.S. They were reputedly stroked for luck by passers-by.

Somehow, my day is a little brighter.

Wow, I didn't realize she was so short. What is she, about 8 inches tall?
