Michele Bachmann Perfectly At Ease Around Negroes

(Detail: see below)

Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. greets Tommy Rice, a 38-year employee of the Beacon Drive-in, Tuesday, August 16, 2011, in Spartanburg, S.C. (AP Photo/ Richard Shiro)

She then screamed for backup:


Side note: her eyelashes are PERFECT (see above).

Atleast she didn't try to hide her ring. Some Bachman types I know would have tried to hide all that gold from a poor person (any Black one, as well).

Great body language - she's got her arms crossed against her body to prevent some of the melanin rubbing off on her.

The top photo would make a great poster. Maybe give it a Liechtenstein photoshop treatment . . .

Wait..that man is 38? He's had a rough life.

Great photos.

This photo, particularly the close-up, immediately reminded me of Bat-boy. The crazy eyes and inhuman, plastic expression are identical!

The bandaid on her finger - the result of a corndog-related mishap?

Her eyelashes remind me of a sundial. I bet you can use them to tell how long we have until the apocalypse comes.

Matty Boy said...

I'm no expert, but aren't people supposed to have lower eyelashes as well? Looking at the photo, it looks hers have been eliminated in a violent purge.

p.s. Andrew's Bat-boy comment is very well observed. Never forget!

As much fun as it is to poke at the Divine Mrs. B., we really should all register as Republicans and throw our support behind her. If the campaign of that treasonous fascist Rick Perry gets its legs, we are all in trouble.

The Rapture.

She's got big pores. He's got some nasty Klingon skin going...what's with all of those moles? And yeah..a rough 38.

My former orthodontist taught me how to "read" veneers. She's sprung for the six set, so she has some serious money in her mouth. I know that sounds funny, but it's troo.

The man has been working at Beacon Drive-in for 38 years, making him at least 15 years older than that, I would think. Working at a fast food place that long was not kind to his skin, either.

"Side note: her eyelashes are PERFECT" No; this is the lede itself, cunningly buried, and further tribute to our PSP's wisdom and powers of perception.

Was Condi's hairstyle, to say nothing of Callista's blonde bubbliciousness, a "side note"? No, of course not. I'd die happy if I had eyelashes like that, and they are why I will follow her. Wherever she may lead.

The eyelashes are indeed approaching Bushmiller territory.

Matty Boy said...

And with that comment, samael7 wins the Internet today, at least the PSP division.

Which is the only division that really matters, right? It's like the Champions League.

Lulu Maude said...

Being held against her will, is she?

Nine on the eyelashes. I see a tiny glob of mascara on the stage left.

Just protecting the voters, who have standards.

Whaddya mean, "her" eyelashes?

ErgoDan said...

It's twoo. it's twoo!

(apologies to Mel Brooks)

Marty Boy: false eyelashes on the upper lids are correct. On the lower lids only is the look Alex had in A Clockwork Orange; on upper and lower lids combined, think Tammy Faye Bakker.

I so dislike painted women! If one must apply make-up, its effect should be seen but not its presence. Ugh! Princess Sparkle Poney...I like that!

Pita said...

Her eyelashes are fake! She needs to clean up the mess the mascara leaves so she doesn't have those black flecks all around her eyes.

Matty Boy said...

Vermont Ferret: You write "Tammy Faye Bakker" like that's a bad thing!

Vermont Ferret said...

Matty Boy: Forgive me if I gave you the wrong impression!

No, he's had his current, barely-more-than-minimum-wage job for 38 years.

And, yes, he's had a rough life...

Anonymous said...

As for the "Klingon skin" comment, that is just exhibit A of what happens when you "work at the Deacon Drive-In" for 38 years, most likely at extremely substandard wages and absolutely no health care package.

Or as our new Galtian Overlords would say "the new middle class"

Meanwhile our tax dollars probably paid for Michelle's "six set veneers" and the Latisse to make her eyes nice and dark...

Well, just for the record, I would still poke her, even though I'm sure she doesn't smell as nice as Sarah Palin.

Hua!
