    1. That’s the terminator eye. Remember? She’s got that kid who told her she’s not allowed to kill anyone. But it was close.

  1. she looks like she might be telling them that sonic youth is dumb and that thurston and kim are divorced.

  2. She is a respectable politician and a lot of people can be made to look funny if you take a screen grab at just the right moment.

    But… surely, I can’t be the only one who thought of The Baroness from GI Joe?

    1.  “respectable politician”…that’s a phrase uttered only by those without basic political information, or someone making a joke.

      1. It’s relative of course. Hillary is well in the upper half of politicians in terms of respectability.

  3. The second picture is cropped a bit too much for my taste, it loses a bit of the “W… T… F… guys????” of the first picture. But great pictures, both!

  4. I get that look on my face almost every time I hear a politician talk about tech related issues.  Or many reporters for that matter.  I know I had the look listening to the NPR reporter talking about Aaron Swartz and the ‘Free Culture’ movements.  Kind of made him sound like a loony.

  5. Overbearing Mother Hillary:

    “Chelsea she doesn’t call for weeks. What is she a big shot? A big shot that can’t call her mother? Just wait til you have kids, Chelsea. You’ll see.”

    1. This reminds me that Secretary Clinton looks uncannily like my mother here, particularly when mom was upbraiding my sister for yet another round of uncommonly foolish teenage foolishness.

      I have no doubt my mother has had occasion to silently and inwardly regret each one of her seven children at one time or another, however briefly.  Does Secretary Clinton finally regret giving up lawyering for this thankless bucket of steaming horseshit she gets handed by “colleagues” and the press day after day?  She’s made of way sterner stuff than I am.  I’d have given up and gone home long before the Whitewater subpoena.

      1.  All you Tommy-come-latelys … does no one remember that Stanley Kowalski first screamed that line?

  6. I felt just like that when she took a gratuitous position against the ‘violent video game’ bogeymedia in the midst of the whole ‘Hot Coffee’ Grand Theft Auto marketing bonanza thing.

  7. I’ve been told “There are no stupid questions” so many times in my life I’ve lost count.

    Stupid people, on the other hand, are a renewable resource.

    1. Sure enough, Ron Paul had a kid.  Was little Rand stoned or what?  Does he have a bong in his briefcase?  
         “Weapons to Turkey?” 
         “Biggest tragedy since 9-11?”
          “If I were president?”
      Does this clown do children’s parties? 

  8. Hopefully this will knock off the talk of her running for president. It was really a bad showing.

    “Why did you repeatedly lie to the American people for weeks and weeks about this event?” “It doesn’t matter! I accept full responsibility, and now that I’ll do nothing let’s move on!”

    1. The GOP has had 4 months to articulate their point, but have never gotten around to it.  All they’ve done is babble in exactly the same way as every grifter and addict caught with their hand in the cookie jar trying to escape by making accusations. Or maybe these old men are speaking the conservative equivalent of the secret language of 12 year old girls. either way, it’s not pretty that they are cheerleaders for terrorists. Oh well, there’s bound to be another bombing or something and then the GOP can try to carry the ball over the goal line for the terrorists again.

      Also see my comment about Rand Paul above. His appearance was comedy gold. I wonder if Anonymous will nail him for making neonazis part of his campaign like his dad did.

  9. I’ll just leave this here:  feministing.com/2013/01/24/how-to-deal-with-a-mansplainer-starring-hillary-clinton-in-gifs/
