Skip to comments.Al Gore's Orange Cheeks!

Please help. Four years ago one of the funniest threads of all time ran on FR. Ironically, it had to do with Al Gore's makeup at the debates, including his orange cheeks. I remember contributing to it and laughing so hard my sides were aching. I saw it a year or so ago on someone's personal page. Can a clever Freeper retrieve it?
I don't remember orange. I think he was covered with thick pancake makeup.
They'll probably slather make-up on him to try to cover up the tanning spray disaster. He'll look like a cross between an Oompa Loompa and Tammie Faye.
I remember Peggy Nonnan wrote that Gore looked like a "San Francicso whore" on that particular occasion.
LMAO - Gore was a scream.
first, would someone please post silly citrus suzy(kerry).
second, gore, as i recall, someone from CQ mag did his makeup. as you know, CQ (clown quarterly)is the leading mag for most dems.
Yes - noticed indeed. Great tag!
That would be one embryo I would be in favor of destroying.
He looked like this after the last one:)
OK I got that passage from Noonan slightly wrong. Here it is, from a March 2004 OpinionJournal article called "JFK Disease."
"The only person in politics who has ever tried to morph himself into Ronald Reagan was Al Gore in his first debate with George W. Bush. He even wore makeup that echoed the heightened color of Mr. Reagan's cheeks. He wound up looking not like Mr. Reagan but like a turn-of-the-century madam in a San Francisco whorehouse, but that's not important. What's important is the jarring weirdness of seeing one politician trying to make you unconsciously experience him as another politician."
Was this the quote by Camille Paglia
As for Al Gore, if I had had any doubt about whether he deserves my vote, he managed to run right over it with his out-of-control, ham-laden 18-wheeler. What a loathsome, smug, preening, juvenile character! The supposedly great debater babbled out of turn; snickered, snorted and sneered; panted and sighed like a bellows; and rocked to and fro and ripped paper like a patient in a mental ward. And Gore looked positively repellent with his dark mat of dyed hair, garish orange makeup and flippantly twisting, strangely female features: I kept on thinking of the bewigged, transvestite Norman Bates as Mother in "Psycho"
Is this the one?
I can guarentee you, we will all get a great laugh if someone can find this.
And I only think of it because of the coincidence of Kerry coming up orange.
What is it with these guys?

Chicago Tribune ^ | October 6, 2000 | Mike Conklin IT'S THE MAKEUP, STUPID Mike Conklin October 6, 2000 Viewers of the next presidential debate will weigh Al Gore's grasp of the facts against George W. Bush's easy charm and decide which is a bigger factor. But they also may be curious to see if Gore's Max Factor --or whatever that makeup was he wore Tuesday night--continues to make him look unearthly. "He was too overdone even by TV standards and that's scary,"said makeup artist Ingrid Myles, who, before the sun even rises, makes everyone look presentable on WGN-Ch. 9's early-morning news show. "He looked like he was embalmed,"added Andrea ...
I found that but the link didn't work.
