"USA Today pulled a photograph of Condoleezza Rice from its website after a weblog revealed it was manipulated, giving the secretary of state a menacing, demon-eyesing stare." (link)
WTF? Why did the Associated Press do that? Not only does it look totally fake, it's pretty unnecessary. It's not as if Condi Rice looked like Santa Claus before. They easily could have used stock photos to just as effectively convey her icy, Medusa gaze..For example...
Here is one they could have used. Now that is evil. I think if you unmasked one of the Ringwraiths in Lord of the Rings they would look slightly more friendly that this. She looks like she's sending death lasers from her hellspawned soul into Wolf Blitzer's neck beard. Damn Wolf Blitzer. I hope she gets him good.
Or how about this one? This picture isn't edited at all, and it's one of the scariest things I've ever seen. One time when I was a kid in Florida, a godamnmed water moccasin tried to bite me on the face, and except for the ear rings and lipstick, it looked exactly like that. You just can't photoshop that kind of evil. Looking that mean is a god given talent.
But if I had to choose one to use, it would have to be this one...
Hail Condi Rice, destroyer of Worlds!!
