Better Get My Cold Cream Gun!

So, I'm willing to admit the press gets a little out of control from time to time (see Israel post below) - but to claim that during one of the more intense press moments in modern history (2000 Presidential election in Florida) , the press had time to doctor photos to make it look like you (Katherine Harris) wore more make-up is absurd. Mind you, not Karl Rove "not possibly involved in leaks" absurd, but still absurd. If the intent was to slander, there is a Rove rolodex full of tips - drugs, interracial sex, etc.

Great title. "Homer, you had it set on 'whore'!"

Say what you will about Katherine Harris, but her perfomance as the Joker in Tim Burton's "Batman" made for one of the finest film villains ever.

Was the press also painting makeup on the live TV broadcasts of the election debacle? 'Twas very bright then.

Alas, there is also the issue of a mismatch. Her blush looks "cool" while her lipstick looks "warm." Surely she would be able to figure out what tone to wear, if not for all the foundation.

So that's what the Avon filter is for in Photoshop.

But I must say that I think it's great when the people pick up a Fark or Worth1000 picture and send them out as real news.

It's easier to gossip than to analyze and report boring / depressing information.

I think Jessica had a nosejob.

It looks like she had an eyebrow lift--it's got that Hollywood-style unnatural arch. And then she applied eyeshadow, and filled in only one side of the under-brow area.

Her features are kinda Potato Head-like, and scarier than the much-too-cute Darth Tater I just got. If they hurried, they could have dolls out by election day.

Nice one, Studd! I was trying to work up a post on this, but yours is perfect!

You know, if it weren't for all that makeup, she'd kind of look like that Gallagher pic you put up a while back.
