Quote of the Day

Lady Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Gore's Gone Wild
posted by Bathus




[NOTE: (09/13/04): If you arrived here via the link on Little Green Footballs (or however you arrived here), I'm glad you found us! While you're here, please take a moment to look around at some of our more recent work. Thanks!--Adeimantus]

I confess I "enhanced" Al's picture just a little. I cribbed the original photo from the very fine blog, Little Green Footballs. (The original picture seems to have been shot when Al was giving his out-of-control speech last week to a nutty group [googlebomb alert] that can't "move on" past their anger about Clinton's impeachment.) Inspired by the obvious possibilities the photo presented, I searched the web for a suitable picture of a "fire eater" in action and then smushed the two pictures together. ("Smushed" is a technical term used by people like me who have jack formal training in graphics.) For the finishing touches, I made Al's face a little redder and his ear even more red, changed the highlighting on his bloated jowl and on the bulging forehead veins to make them slightly more pronounced, and added the devilish "redeye" effect. As novelists say, the fiction captures the truth of the reality.

Citizen Gore's picture looked vaguely familiar to me, somewhat like my homiletics professor in seminary. He was a fire breathing dragon if there ever was one.
