- start wearing their hair over their ears.

To hide the surgical scars.

Hey, she did everything she could to get him in there. She participates fully in his propaganda campaigns. She is part of the problem.

Fair game.

1. Well, I wear my hair over my ears, but for other reasons
First of all, I can't afford to get a haircut, and know better than to try and cut my hair myself.

Second of all, it's turned cold, and so I don't have to have earmuffs.

2. Sorry to burst your bubble,
but good plastic surgeons are quite expert at hiding the scars of a face lift.

I know, I'm in the industry.

Besides looking at those pictures and the lower portion of her face, she didn't have a face lift. AND if she did...so what?

15. Rude????? Who used profanity???????
I wasn't trying to impress anybody incorrect assumption

I read her post and if ALL of her thoughts were not present in the post then that is the posters error. I am not going to track thru all of Stephanie's posts. Each and every post should be able to stand on it's own without having to read all of the posters history to GET what they might really mean. (Did she not also say "Flame Away)? What are you two the new tag team?

Looking at the pictures that she posted, there is no evidence that Laura Bush has had plastic surgery. If you make an accusation, you should be able to back it up. Besides if she did, so what????

Now go ahead and swear at me again because you stuck your nose into my comments directed to somebody else. Show me how "polite" you are!

61. Pickles isn't homely. As a young woman, she was quite adorable looking.
But the years of pasting on a fake smile and freezing her emotions have permanently altered her otherwise attractive features. She has been compared to the Joker for very good reason.

Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 01:07 PM by rasputin1952
she dresses or acts so haughtily. But when i see that face on the tube or in a pic, she is pretty homely to me. The whole 'smile' thing she does looks so scripted, she is in a place she would rather not be, and it is telling, at least in my eyes.

Speaking of eyes...hers look lifeless, as if there was no soul behind them; or at least a squashed soul that can't be detected.

100. I've seen Laura Bush up close, like from five feet away,
and she hasn't had anything done.

She's not a bad-looking woman, VERY trim, and somewhat short-to-average height.

Television and cameras ALWAYS make most people look worse than they do in real life.

The same is true with John Kerry, who looks far better in person than on camera.

bother to take the time to post, just to tell us they don't care. I don't care that they don't care, so why post just to tell us they don't care?

I completely agree that the Bushies conduct (all of them) towards Cindy Sheehan is completely reprehensible. And in no way funny.

50. Actually...it could indicate the opposite
My wife, who is an arm-chair expert on these things, tells me that in order to judge a womans age, look at the neck. It is the one place on the body where plastic surgery cannot be performed (her claim, ?truth).

So if the skin of face is not as the neck, could be an indication

22. Maybe being more specific helps...but it's still not true...
you're painting a wide brush over an entire group. No matter your reasons for doing so does not make it right. You can't even say women of a certain age in upper class and leading public lives all have had plastic surgery if they wear their hair over their ears. You would need facts to back up the statement and I seriously doubt you do.

You began the thread with Laura's appearance then went on to John Kerry's mentioning he 'looks' French.

Here is your statement:

Kerry pays $75 for a haircut, Kerry looks French, etc. You fight your way, I'll fight mine.

I understand your intentioned, however it's not an effective way to fight and won't get you far.

Some of us like to stand on a higher ground, it is very disheartening when we have to step DOWN to a lower ground because of petty untrue allegations or just plain mean rumors made by one of our own.

I would rather lose with honor then win using their (Republican/Bush) tactics.

Jesus could have saved himself from being crucified on the cross. He didn't. Just because he could....he still didn't. THAT is the example that I would try to follow.

29. "fair" game? Not.
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 10:07 AM by onenote
First, I think your post offers speculation on the flimsiest of evidence. Teresa Heinz Kerry and Elizabeth Edwards are two prominent Democrats who wear their hair over their ears from time to time (almost always in the case of Heinz Kerry). I suspect there are several million other women who do the same, and being "society" has nothing to do with it.

Second, I don't have a problem with Pickles being "fair" game. Only your post is neither fair (since it is essentially baseless) nor is it "game" in the sense that whether Laura Bush had a face lift or Joe Biden had hair plugs or whatever has nothing to do with anything.

If assholes like Drudge want to play "did John Kerry get a nip and tuck" game, fine. He's being an asshole. Its not a label anyone here should be aspiring to...

60. "General Discussion" allows for levity. Stephanie is a huge
contributor daily with her pictures and comments, most of them very, very funny. One step "out of line" and she gets trounced. There are different forms and levels of humor. Frankly, I thought neocon Bill Kristol getting pied was hilarious. I don't give a rat's if anyone thinks of me as "childish" for thinking so, either. Pick your battles.

67. their hair is pulled back
I can see their ears - so in my professional opinion, they have not had work done. :)

70. The best way to tell is that the hairline seems
to be moved back at the ears. That's the transcendent mark of face lifts. And pickles really does have that. I have known many women who have short hair, even at the ears, who have had face lifts. But they stop styling the hair back and instead direct it down or toward the face so the hairline at the ears becomes invisible.

I should also say....if she had a face lift, she had a good one IMO. I dislike pickles, but cosmetic procedures don't bother me one way or another.

71. Finally someone who understands the topic!
Yes, Pickles recently changed her hairstyle - she now pulling it forward to cover her ears. And she is really starting to resemble Jenna more than herself.

Doesn't bother me either. If you can afford it, go for it. But I wonder what the "base" would say if they knew about hers?

79. Is there a
Difference between liposuction, an a Tummy tuck? not to stray from the subject, just a quick question, since you seem to be knowledgeable on cosmetic surgery I would like to know.

72. Ahem...
I have no surgical scars, I'm 59 today, and my hair is almost to my waist because I have vowed not to cut it until the Neocons are out of office. Your generalization doesn't cut it.

74. It's not about the length of her hair
It's that she has restyled it to cover her ears. For some reason. About which we are speculating. For fun!

That people will take you much more seriously if you were to attack the argument than the appearance of the person making the argument. It's a maturity thing.

good about it. Just don't get addicted to it like a certain entertainer.

86. IN DEFENSE OF STEPHANIE-
Laura Bush is a caricature of privelidge and vanity. She and her "hubby" have probably been photographed more times than Princess Diana. How I WISH that weren't the case; Princess Diana had HUMANITY. This clownish pair hasn't shown a speck of it, save for the cheap photo ops.

My read is this: Stephanie mimics the phrase "women of a certain age" because it's attributable to ultra-genteel society who employ euphemisms rather than plain language. Laura's image seems to be so damned important to her but NOTHING will break past that drugged-out, vapid look on her face.

Since there is no humanity to either of them, some of us regard them as objects instead of people. Don't think they haven't favored us with same. We jeer and deride, and it's inclusive of their appearance because what they stand for is plainly in view. This is why Stephanie's threads get attention, and this is why I appreciate them. Face lift or no, if venting suits our purpose, I see no harm in the means.

87. You're wrong.
Can't afford head bands. What a silly statment to make. Surgical scars?! Please. However, when YOU reach that CERTIAN AGE we'll be curious to know how you wear your hair.

88. I read facetiousness in Stephanie's post-
She has been very entertaining in her speculations based on the pictures she shows us. We can agree or not agree. However, I've read very thoughtful posts written by her and what she's doing here is employing the exaggerated gentility of Laura's language and attitude; not her own.

Remember when Hillary wore headbands though? I sure got a mess of them. Also, don't forget....white roots.

90. I LOVED the headbands.
What was it about the white roots? I'm rather young in my new political passion, so I'm not sure what they were saying..Hillary has white roots? That's positively sexy! Really, I'm 35 and I welcome my gray hairs. I think women who aren't afraid to be absolutely real are wonderful.

94. No, I was referring to me.
My hair is black so white roots..., well...I'm just not ready yet. I try to pass myself off as younger so I'll be more hireable. Sad. But that's the way it is now in the working world.

Forgive me, I'm bad for commenting on how "the lump in the bed" looks but that doesn't even look like her!

She has one freaky smile. I always see The Joker from Batman when I see her smile.

Bad bad bad of me. I'm so sorry.
