Photo Weirdness or Is Chimp A Cardboard Cutout for Photos?


Okay, look at this first. This is from the story about A Gonzales-I thought the look on Bush's face was oddly familiar.



From here- http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/041116/4...

Seems like I remember seeing this same thing a long time ago with yet ANOTHER person as well. The 2nd photo with Alberto looks like it has been around the block a few times and is more blurry, with less distinct features.. but it's the same.

The similarities to Forrest Gump boggle.

Botox treatment gone awry and he can no longer move his face or head?

3. The smirk is set in concrete
But there is a slightly different slant to the head.

6. since the s election
he has been strutting around casting this egalitarian critical expression.
Or as grandma would say 'He looks like a cat with a canary in its mouth'.

5. Cardboard is smarter.
The Chimp has so few settings on his emotional thermostat that he's barely there.

Ugh. :puke:

7. This was driving me crazy-found a WaPost article from 2000
http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn?pagename=artic...

"Machine" politician exposed by photos
First, don't panic. There is probably a good explanation for the mystery of the photographs, something that does not threaten the enslavement and/or extermination of mankind.

There has to be a benign explanation. I just haven't found it yet.

The first photograph appeared in The Washington Post on Dec. 18. In it, the president-elect stands behind and to the side of Condoleezza Rice, his nominee for national security adviser. George W. Bush is slightly out of focus. His head is cocked to the left and tilted slightly backward, his mouth downturned in a perfect cartoonish crescent, the way a first-grader might draw a frown. His eyes are squinty.

The next photograph appeared in this paper two days later. In it, the president-elect stands behind and to the side of Alberto R. Gonzalez, his choice for White House counsel. George W. Bush is slightly out of focus. His head is cocked to the left and tilted slightly backward, his mouth downturned in a perfect, cartoonish crescent, the way a first-grader might draw a frown. His eyes are squinty.

It is not a similar pose; it is an identical pose. It is not a similar expression; it is the identical expression.

........more.....

10. Not all "robots" are made of metal.
I think we're looking at a guy who simply has a set of "routines" that he's learned to play through in certain situations. Bush probably isn't even aware of it himself.

11. This article is hysterical!


Let's follow this through to its logical conclusion. The most powerful human on Earth is not a human at all but a machine under the control of an unknown master with technological skills far beyond ours, programmed to carry out God-knows-what for the benefit of God-knows-who at the expense of you-know-very-well-who?


LOL!

the 3 Laws of Robotics.
