Subliminal Message?

Filed under: — site admin @ 11:10 PM GMT-0500

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.


  1. Obligatory comment about crushing people’s throats with pure force of will being very useful in a SecState.

  2. The vibe I get is Rhythm Nation 1814.

    By the way Doc, could you pretty-please rip out the “letterspacing: -1px” from your CSS?
