Subliminal Message?

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:10 PM UTC

As others have noted, this is an excellent picture of Condoleezza Rice, but I wonder whether there’s something subliminal going on. If we look past the smile, Rice’s helmet-like black hair, black dress, long black coat (two parts trench coat, one part cape), and tall black boots combine to give just a hint of a Darth Vader effect. Of course, any Secretary of State needs a little bit of Vader to succeed, and she does look good in black.

Tragic Ignorance

It’s unsporting to make fun of semiliterate misspellings, but this one is too amusing to pass by. The Indepundit, aka LT Smash, links to a group called Code Pink: Women for Peace that is still demanding “peace” through surrender in Iraq. One particular sentence in their advertisement caught my eye:

Camp Pendleton Marine base, one of the largest bases in the country, has suffered a tragic number of causalities in the ongoing war and occupation of Iraq.

Damn those tragic causalities! Would it be unfair to note that the moonbat community has always had trouble with things like cause and effect? I won’t link to Code Pink, but I did check their site, and the error was not introduced by LT Smash. (I thought I ought to mention that in case they fix it.)
