He want’s to smile but the botox won’t let him.

WisRich on October 7, 2013 at 4:47 PM

A spitting image of good ol’ Lurch.

geojed on October 7, 2013 at 4:54 PM

Please tell me that this is a photoshopped image.

I didn’t think he could outdo the NASA clean suit photo but apparently I was mistaken.

turfmann on October 7, 2013 at 4:57 PM

Meh, Lurch is far more masculine.

deepdiver on October 7, 2013 at 4:58 PM

Way to go. A real photo that looks Photoshopped.

Seriously, what’s up with his face?

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 5:01 PM

He looks like an old woman.

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 5:01 PM

I had exactly the same reaction.

gwelf on October 7, 2013 at 5:15 PM

If not for the shutdown we would be seeing Obama dressed up ridiculously. End the shutdown now!

roryn00 on October 7, 2013 at 5:15 PM

He looks like my grandma.

ctmom on October 7, 2013 at 5:26 PM

Did he out do the picture where he was wearing the giant blue condom at NASA? I think he may have.

DanMan on October 7, 2013 at 5:40 PM

Looks like they had to confiscate his chompers… shutdown, you know.

Marcola on October 7, 2013 at 5:44 PM

nice look Mr. Ketchup

burserker on October 7, 2013 at 5:45 PM

CAPTION:

“Wow….I wonder if any of these chicks are rich…….”

Of course, you know what those young ladies are thinking:

“Man, this is going on YouTube the minute I get back to my cellphone”

BobMbx on October 7, 2013 at 5:47 PM

If it was photoshopped, he’d be wearing one of the females’ outfits.

Marcola on October 7, 2013 at 5:47 PM

A spitting image of good ol’ Lurch.

geojed on October 7, 2013 at 4:54 PM

I was thinking more along these lines.

Kafir on October 7, 2013 at 5:56 PM

Complete with Kabuki makeup.

SteveInRTP on October 7, 2013 at 6:32 PM

Isn’t he that guy who served in Vietnam?

Galtian on October 7, 2013 at 6:33 PM

That has got to be photoshopped.

tommer74 on October 7, 2013 at 6:41 PM

Reminds me, I’ve looked high and low for that whole awesome set of photos of him and John Edwards tossing a football. They are a scream! I’ve been able to find a couple of them, but most seem to have been wiped off the internet somehow. Also there are some funny ones of him and his wife in a park somewhere, which are reminiscent of a mother putting up with her annoying pain in the ass son.

surrounded on October 7, 2013 at 6:45 PM

Same pose as the guy at the end of Milton Bradley’s Mouse Trap game.

DarthBrooks on October 7, 2013 at 7:00 PM

Laughing pretty hard at this:

Hey! When did John Kerry become a female Episcopal priest? – Eric Teetsel

Fallon on October 7, 2013 at 7:01 PM

Didn’t know lurch was teh ghey.

davidk on October 7, 2013 at 7:17 PM

Putin and other leaders also donned these “silly shirts.” No wonder 0bama didn’t go to this summit.

BTW, Putin looks puffy and botoxed lately too.

Brat on October 7, 2013 at 7:33 PM

Wasn’t she on Golden Girls?

SoRight on October 7, 2013 at 7:55 PM

Seriously, what’s up with his face?

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 5:01 PM


Looks like he has had a mild stroke or had some nerve damage to his face which prevents him from using those lower facial muscles. Also, the guy could be really sick and need to be relieved of his duties as SecState.

‘Fake But Accurate’ Becomes ‘Accurate But Fake’?

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 8:44 PM

The guy’s face is melting…

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 8:44 PM

.
Actually, quoting Ø on (1) his willingness to negotiate with Republicans and (2) his knee-slapper about employees who would bring a manufacturing business to a halt to get what they want, would be excellent “accurate but fake” examples.
.
I think this Sick SecState is real.

ExpressoBold on October 7, 2013 at 8:59 PM

I think this Sick SecState is real.

ExpressoBold on October 7, 2013 at 8:59 PM

I swear that my first reaction when I saw the photo was that it was photoshopped…not because of its silliness, but because of the quality.

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 9:06 PM

Wasn’t lurch the one who got surrounded by teeny boopers when he was running for president? Maybe not but small bits of detail are stuck in my head. If so, maybe he has a deep seated problem.

ru2sel on October 7, 2013 at 9:21 PM

i feel so proud that urge to lift my leg

Mongerel on October 7, 2013 at 9:35 PM

You don’t walk around with your hands together unless you’re one of the Balinese dancers, Lurch.

And also, that’s the girl’s pose. Just FYI.

I did have a funny incident when an older woman bowed and did her hands like that…and I ended up grabbing them both and shaking them. But I was 20 and didn’t have a staff to work on formalities.

TexasDan on October 7, 2013 at 9:36 PM

Just threw up a little in my mouth.

Maddie on October 7, 2013 at 11:10 PM

I thought Hillary resigned?

xdwall on October 8, 2013 at 1:52 AM

“Has anybody seen Jehn-jis Kahn?”

Ted Torgerson on October 8, 2013 at 2:00 AM

Seriously, what’s up with his face?

Resist We Much on October 7, 2013 at 5:01 PM

It looks like someone pulled a practical joke on him and superglued his hands together and his mouth shut.

Shy Guy on October 8, 2013 at 8:12 AM

“John, why the long face?”

Still my fav Kerry joke.

2L8 on October 8, 2013 at 8:47 AM

He looks like a character in “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”

conservative pilgrim on October 8, 2013 at 8:55 AM

Did someone spike his coconut juice and is there a vid?

Kissmygrits on October 8, 2013 at 9:34 AM

Why is he standing there? Shouldn’t he be watching somewhere to the side with the other leaders, or did they not let him have a seat at the grown up table.

Gwillie on October 8, 2013 at 9:50 AM

I was thinking more along these lines.

Kafir on October 7, 2013 at 5:56 PM

That’s an insult to Mr. Ed

Ann on October 8, 2013 at 12:27 PM

Ann on October 8, 2013 at 12:27 PM

No, it is Mr. Ed. Wrong end.

MikeinPRCA on October 8, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Great visual of a panderer: “I’ll just do what they do, and they will like me”.

What a jackass! Hillary would not have photographic evidence of her idiocy like this.
