"Why can't they just photograph conservatives straight?!" blasted this week's TIME magazine covergirl Ann Coulter.
The bestselling author and controversialist slammed magazine editors for fronting a photo of her, she claims, which is so distorted "my own mother would not even recognize me!"
The photographer, Platon, appears to have used a wide "Fisheye" lense for the cover snap, stretching Coulter's legs and feet -- while shrinking the rest of her body.

I agree, it's a ridiculous photo.
Ann, Ann, Ann. You should know better than to ever trust liberals. I knew when I saw the cover that it was done on purpose to make her look bad.
At least her legs are tastefully crossed unlike Clinton's pose.
Don't let anyone with only one name photograph you for the public.
The pointy, "spleen-splitter" shoes (as I like to call them), definitely don't help.
It looks like the photog did his best to make her look like the Wicked Witch of the West. The distortion of the lens accentuates the pointy shoes, and the lighting makes her look deathly pale.
Sort of reminds of the Clinton photo of him sitting.
I think it looks kinda cool. Gives me the impression that she's got huge feet (the better to stomp libs with, my dear).
I understand her anger though, no woman wants to get all gussied up for a photo only to find out later it's anything less than flattering.
IMO, she still looks quite tempting.
LOL. Maybe not, but they're still cute shoes. :) The picture doesn't do her justice at all, though.
Anyone else find it ironic that there's a q&a with confirmed d**che-bag Sean Penn in the same issue?
She looks fine. She is a classy lady and shows it.
"It looks like the photog did his best to make her look like the Wicked Witch of the West"
No. Alice in Wonderland.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Over the weekend someone described her footwear as "a house fell on my sister shoes". I got a good laugh out of that post.
She looks like she's ready for a good fight and that's what every body (except libs) loves about her.
The imagery, including what she wore (which she should have picked something with color), all designed to make her look shrill, sharp, emotionless/unfriendly, mean, etc etc, the liberal image of a conservative woman.
She needed a PR person to set that shoot up in her favor.
I think the photo is fine. It's intimidating true but also gives her a feminine air also.
