I guess the thread title says it all. I've kept from posting this thread for months, but after seeing her again on-screen tonight, I can't control myself any longer.

Regardless of her leadership qualities or qualifications, Hillary Clinton has the unfortunate talent of looking like an eyes-buggin' wacko on camera. I don't know if it's a gender thing or if I'm falling prey to unintended gender-discrimination, but in event after event, she is caught on camera looking like a nut-case.

Perhaps it's an case of personality+malleable face= public perception of moronic dipshit, but how anyone can take her seriously after seeing her act on camera is beyond me.

I know, I know... this thread is useless without pics. So get going, folks! Add your most ridiculous Hillary pics here.

Yeah, ever since she went from being up 20-30 points on Barack to getting her ass handed to her in 30/44 states, she's gone off the deep end along with Bill (seriously, that guy used to be one of the best politicians of all time, what happened to him?). It's odd because you'd think the consultants that created her personality would tell her to work on it.

She looks insane, she's having flashbacks to events that never happened...what the hell? I don't think it's a female thing. You don't see Merkel of Germany, Fernandez of Argentina, or Halonen of Finland looking like they just broke out of an asylum (even if Halonen looks like Conan).

If you have enough pics taken of you everyday, there are plenty that will make you look silly. Then it's a matter of the powers that be deciding what ought to be on page one. For a newspaper or web site it's a more subtle way of saying "don't vote for this person because they are nuts".

Or you could just open your mouth and sound crazy like Mccain "bomb, bomb, bomb, he, he, bomb, bomb, iran"

I don't think that's what's going on here. Have you watched her at any of her post-primary speeches to her supporters? She has this unfortunate habit of screwing her face into clownish, over-reactive expressions over and over and over again. It's almost as if her face amplifies and betrays her emotions to such an extent that she ends up being captured on camera looking like a buffoon.

Certainly, there are plenty of folks out there who hate her and would do anything to paint her as an idiot, but that's not what's happening here; she's doing it to herself. You'd think that her advisers would have told her to tone it down, but she hasn't. It's almost the visual equivalent of Howard Dean's scream.

People want their candidates to look "Presidential." She looks anything but. And it's not because she's a woman. Margaret Thatcher -- as awful politically as she was -- looked the part of a Prime Minister. Hillary all-too-often looks the part of a clown.

This is an excellent point. I have had the same thoughts, comparing her to Margaret Thatcher and Indira Ghandi during the point where she was breaking into tears before major primaries (ok, it only hapened twice, but you never saw thatcher or ghandi cry).

I think alot of the facial expression thing is that her expressions when they look really clownish are forced. She's thinking "I have to be really happy and expressive here" when she may be feeling something very different.

This isn't a new thing, by the way:

Adam "Big Baller" Jasinski from Big Brother 9 has Hillary beat HANDS down.
He has the worst bug eyes ever which you really can't see in this photo.

:eek:fftopic::lol:

on-topic:

Actually, IMHO, that pic shows two young, pretty-much-mainstream-for-their-time, college student-types. I'm pretty sure I would have liked those two more than what they became after three more decades of playing politics.

I posted the MCain pics to show that a simple google search can uncovered plenty of embrarraising photos of just about any public figure. I do admit that the Hillary big eyes thing is pretty common though. BTW, plenty of great Bush pics out there and he was a very successful 2 term prez. Not too many embarassing Obama pics though. The man is a robot I tell ya!

I think JazzMat is right. Anytime I watch video of her on the news, she manages to conjure up one of these bizarre faces. This isn't cherry picking. As I recall, earlier in the campaign she had an image problem with not seeming very warm, so her handlers coached her to smile a lot more. Ever since then, she has been going over the top with the beaming expressions.

I more agree with roccodan and jaythesnork. Hell, there are whole websites of our current president chimpy with side by side photos showing his wonderful monkey-like expressions.
