It's not easy being orange

By Aussiegirl

Can we talk? About John Kerry's looks? What's with the orange skin all of a sudden? I was so suprised -- and delighted -- to see this the other day -- obviously he is deep into preparations for the debates -- which looks like it included a stop at a Hollywood style spray-on tan -- I wonder if you get to choose your shade -- everything ranging from Autumn Glow to Tahitian Sunset to Mocha-Latte Frappucino. Kerry's looks like it's a cross between Pumpkin Madness and Persimmon Sheen. This SHOULD be interesting now. If nothing else, Kerry as Commander in Chief can be counted on to surprise his allies and enemies with unexpected hues to add to that element of mystery and elan. Perhaps he will wear earth tones to complement his skin color. Now there's something Gore didn't think of. I bet he's kicking himself now.

John Kerry is going to hope that we are all listening to him on the radio.

Remember when Gore came out on stage with "Rosy Cheeks by Max Factor?"

Yes, BonnieB. -- these metrosexual democrat men all seem to have problems with their make-up. Do you supppose he came out of the tanning salon and pronounced, "I'm ready for my close-up now, Mr. DeMille."

Carol chimes in with this:

What color tie do you wear with an orange face? CAROL

Brilliant writing! "Pumpkin Madness" and "Persimmon Sheen"! Anyone out there whose job is to coin names for new lipsticks, here are two doozies!
