    This heavily manipulated photograph was on the Time magazine site. I tried to find a way to write them a scathing letter but they didn't have any way to get to them.

    This is our Secretary Of State and some asswipe at Time magazine is screwing around with her photograph, screw them!

    Condi never was much of a looker.

    Hardly anything to write scathing letters about however. I'm sure somebody loves her. :puke:

    Check out the page here: http://www.time.com/time/2006/time100/walkup/

    The pic you posted was cropped from the larger illustration done for the magazine. Not sure that the intent was as sinister as you think.

    Your right. The intent wasn't sinister at all. Hell Sen. Clinton looks worse than the Secretary. That's saying alot coming from Time.

    Well, after seeing the complete group of "caricatures" it could be explained as just bad art and design but then again it was just her caricature sitting there on the page with no explanation. . . . after all some other no talent jerk did basically the same thing last year.

    I design page layout, It was done for 1 of 2 reasons, either it was done on purpose as a disrespectful, lame ass attempt to make Ms. Rice look sinister and insane or the person that designed it is so incredibly inept and clueless I find it very hard to believe that they are employed much less employed by a major magazine. Either way the editors that approved of the page layout had to have noticed......obvious agenda.

    There is an art to decent caricature, it isn't accomplished very often in photoshop playing with the tools available to manipulate a photo.. . . too simple and usually just looks that way. . .Weak. Just my opinion, what do I know?
