Al Gore's Orange Cheeks!
FR ^ | 2000 | FR

Posted on 09/28/2004 5:16:02 PM PDT by Urbane_Guerilla

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?


TOPICS: Political Humor/Cartoons; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: gore; orange
I tried searching for it with no luck. I remember it was based in part on comments by Camille Paglia. It is a golden oldie and I believe with the orange Kerry thing it might especially bring everyone a good laugh.

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.

I remember it was orange because he was described as having cockatiel orange cheeks (by me).

No doubt we'll soon be treated to a magazine cover featuring John F'n-America Kerry with an "enhanced package"?

By the way, has anyone else taken notice of the amusing fact that the time in US history that we ever lost a war was when the United States swerved into political agreement with the philosophy of John Kerry, and he's also the point man for the attack on this war, too?

Algore was bipolar in all three debates as I remember.

He looked like this after the last one:)

The enhanced package thing was also hilarious ... that ran in Rolling Stone I think. Gore and Kerry are so much alike: spoiled, out of touch, shallow.

OK I got that passage from Noonan slightly wrong. Here it is, from a March 2004 OpinionJournal article called "JFK Disease."

http://www.opinionjournal.com/columnists/pnoonan/?id=110004768

"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."

He did look like a cheap streetwalker ... plucked eyebrows, caked on makeup, and vacant look.

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"

Bob ... I believe that was one of the pix which ran in the thread! SOMEONE OUT THERE HAS THIS THREAD ON HIS/HER PERSONAL PAGE.

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?

IT'S THE MAKEUP, STUPID

Posted by SJackson On News/Activism 10/06/2000 2:50:38 PM EDT

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.

Gore and Kerry are so much alike ....

Especially in the undying belief that each was only one gimmick away from the Presidency.

i'm offended by your comment about the Oompa.
As you know the Oompa's are poor people from Loompaland who were terrorised by the snozzwangers. the only reason they have survived was because someone gave them jobs(due to tax breaks by W), made them part of society and helped with the economy.
Orange boy would take these takes breaks back forcing the Oompa's to move back to Loompaland where they will be eaten by the wangdoodles.

"Get ready, Kerry supposedly gave an interview to a gay magazine."

If that's so, they are scraping for votes in barrels, near the bottom. Edwards is campaigning in New Jersey. That's like Cheney campaigning in Texas or Georgia near the end.

Not one to understate anything, that would appear to be the case

Is the a picture with him floating in a boat? There was a picture with Algore in a boat 4 years ago. Pretty funny.

Gore's great weakness is the psychiatric condition known as OPD or Obnoxious Personality Disorder. In the heat of a national campaign he just cannot hide the fact that he is an arrogant, self-absorbed jerk. In a nationally televised debate that fact shines out like a lighthouse on a clear night. The best thing Bush can do is to let it shine.

OPD! Does that sound like any other Democrat presidential candidate running this year?

That was the one where he looked like Howdie Doodie. I'm not sure if I liked that one or the one where he looked like a corpse better.The "orange Kerry" is strange. He looks like a negative of Leo Sayer

Ironically, from the referenced thread (Post #20):

Would you believe that the debate teams "agreed" to 65 degrees? Gore wanted it lower. I guess that's because he sweats like a pig.

Came back to this thread to see if anyone found anything. Guess not. I did do a little more searching though, and came up with the 6 live threads from the debate in question, which was the first Bush/Gore debate from 10/3/2000.

This thread has links to all 6 threads. Lots of humorous comments about the makeup throughout, but I don't think it's what you're looking for.

It has a pic of Algore which was astounding.

I'm "deeply saddened" to hear about the "disenfranchisement" of the Oompa's. Considering his Oompan-American roots you would think "Ol' Tangerine" would be more "sensitive". I urge W to initiate a unilateral preemptive liberation of Loompaland as soon as possible. I'm talking a full scale Wonka-swift boat assault up the chocolate river.
