It's a Gingrichpalooza out there these days! What could be better? Soon, everywhere you look you will see Goddess Callista smiling at you, from official portraits in every workplace, to stamps and coins, and on huge flying billboards like in Blade Runner. CALLISTA EVERYWHERE NOW PLEASE! Speaking of loose Philip K. Dick adaptations, imagine also that all those pictures of Callista are calling to you by name, like in The Minority Report. In fact, I'm mentally casting Callista in all sorts of Philip K. Dick scenarios: she could be permanent First Lady to a succession of presidents like "Nicole" in The Simulacra; she's easy to imagine as a brittle colonist in Martian Time Slip; thrill as Callista regresses first to a teen, then a toddler in Counter-Clock World!
In other words: bring on the Callistabots!
So what are other people saying about Queen Callie-Lou? Let's see:
- Gawker's post about Callista's coiffure is just another "we interviewed a hairdresser and this is how difficult and old-fashioned he says the hairdo is," but that's not a bad thing! That's a good thing!
- Andrew Sullivan linked to a gross sex fantasy about Newt, but also referred to the Callista hair object as a "pointy helmet."
- This isn't about Callista, but PSP fantasy mistress Jen Rubin at the Washington Post is, hilariously, on the Newt warpath again, all panicky-like, and it is wonderful unintentional satire.
- You should probably view this magnificent video inspired by the sphericality of The Hairdo immediately.
- What would it be like to BE Callista? Buzzfeed wants to help.
- The Orange County Register wonders out loud if Callista has had "work" done: "Dr. Douglas Hendricks sounded quite certain: "Without question she has had extensive botox to the forehead, crows feet and the frown lines…no matter what expression she has, there are no lines and no movement or change in her expession in the upper 1/3 of her face."" Oh, it's mean, and it's good.
