Al(fred) Sharpton Presents?

I’d say the “Ick Factor” on this photo of Dick Gephart is, oh, 11.
It’s practically a Robert Mapplethorpe photo, specifically Man in a Polyester Suit from 1980. [Warning: link goes to explicit photo that includes an ugly suit.]
Sidebar: Incredibly Shameful Admission: I found this image on Drudge. I am so terribly, terribly ashamed but admitting it is the first step.
Right off the bat: no photo-alteration software of any kind was used in this photograph.
This means that the more than fifty percent of Americans who consider themselves “born-agains” can rest assured that the U.S.-led War on Terror™ is, in fact, a mission from God. Or His son, at least.
All you heathens and Jews, meanwhile, better start repenting. You really don’t want to see Tom DeLay‘s depiction of Israel after the Rapture.

Certainly one might throw out some captions here like “I call Rummy…you guys get Lewis, the closeted gay rations chef,” but on a more topical and news-related note, we’re going with, “Don’t worry, Donald, you may have been willfully left out of the Iraq Stabilization Group, but we have faith in your athletic skills.”

Following up on the post immediately below, meet one Joe M. Allbaugh, the former Director of FEMA. A predictably awful suggested headline may have been, “FEMA DECLARES HAIRLINE A FEDERAL DISASTER AREA”, but that would have been tasteless. So instead, we’ll simply let the image speak for itself, and lest you think we’re picking on this poor chap in an unwarranted manner, take note of the following info snipped from the FEMA site:
“Mr. Allbaugh served as the National Campaign Manager for Bush-Cheney 2000 with responsibility and oversight for all activities related to the Bush election campaign. He had previously served as Campaign Manager for President Bush’s first run for Texas governor.”
See, the guy deserves it! Laugh away!
