Wherein Weasel admits defeat

Nope. Sorry. Over my head. Out of my league. There is absolutely nothing I can do to this photo to make it creepier than the original. I’m sorry, people who are Photoshopping this image — you are living a lie.

That there’s Jim Messina, campaign manager for Obama 2012 and world creepiest ginger. The idea belonged to deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, though. I guess you were supposed to write something on your flesh that you like about the Obama administration, take a picture and post it to the Twitter hashtag #forall.

That’s the kind of quirky, madcap kampaign kut-up that might have appealed to The Youth in 2008. No doubt that’s why these dweebs keep trying to float stuff like that.

But the 2008 campaign was like the Blair Witch Project — interesting idea, only works once. You can’t run a “what the hell, let’s give the new guy a try” campaign second time around.

Four years down the line, and it’s just sad. There you are, standing in front of a mirror with junk scribbled on your flesh in magic marker, looking every inch the kiddie-diddler.

Even making it B&W helps make it less creepazoid.

The amazing this is how they don’t realize how sickening it is.

Could be worse, e.g., stuff scribbled on his junk…

Yeah that picture is just terrifying. And the weird thing is, its less creepy in black and white.

I told you that I was working on bio-weapons to kill sub-human black people

Now my evil plans have come a long way. Now that GE biotoxins are within the worlds food supply, certain effects will soon be noticed.

Oh and Sweasel, never give up – just live in another country if you can’t hack the pace lolololol!
Maybe you should all start complaining to your local Congress-Things about GMO’s and Monsanto …

At last we get to see what Oceania looks like. The face I’ll associate with the troll until the end of time.

I think the perfect photographic response to creepy-dude is Jim Marshall’s picture of Johnny Cash flipping off the camera at San Quentin. Behold.

Weasel, the thing to do with this is subtle tweaks… Add a jar of candy, change the existing pics to sad clowns or creepy big-eye cats…. Accentuate the alien / creepy factor.

And now -just when I thought that this couldn’t be topped- it turns out that the picture of Obama ‘apologizing to the Somali Pirates’ is real.

Have you no shame, Mr.Obama? At long last have you no shame? This man will try anything (except meeting with the President of Israel) to get reelected.

And yet. And yet. Instead of being 15-20 points behind in the polls, there’s a distinct chance Obama will be re-elected. It’s like Mugatu in Zoolander: I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.

Ace & Teacher have been taking the mickey out of the celeb bubbleheads 1% supporting this stupid writing-on-the-hand meme, however when I saw Portman’s smug example, this immediately came to mind:

I looked at that picture and immediately thought of a line-up at the local copshop and the voice of a little kid saying “yes officer, that’s the man who touched me”. I mean. geezuz, look at that face.

If you write something on the back of your hand, that’s cool. However, if you write something on the palm of your hand, a la Palin, that’s stupid. See?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
