REVERSE MORPH FOR HILLARY

REVERSE MORPH FOR HILLARY

by Mia T, 03.01.06

 

 

As the inaugural study in the Washington Post-Political Communication Lab collaboration, we studied attraction to familiar faces. A considerable body of research in social psychology derived from the classic studies of Stanford psychologist Robert Zajonc demonstrates that people evaluate objects they have encountered previously more favorably than novel objects, even when they do not consciously recognize the previously-encountered objects. In other words, "mere exposure" is sufficient to increase an object's likeability.

We are interested in the question because in the political arena, there is ample evidence of a familiarity bias in voting behavior. The fact that incumbents habitually win re-election by convincing margins may be attributable, in part, to the higher level of recognition of the incumbent's name and face.

We used digital face morphing technology to create relatively familiar and unfamiliar faces. More than 2,200 individuals participated in the study, a part of an ongoing collaborative effort by Stanford researchers Jeremy Bailenson, Nathan Collins, Shanto Iyengar, and Nick Yee.

hat a remarkably representative baseline photo of missus clinton.

My, my. Is there anything the lefties won't try to make this creature acceptable?

They've tried morphing hillary into Condi by way of Geena Davis and that didn't work.

So now they're experimenting with reversing process.

Good thinking!


'HIATUS' FOR HILLARY?

by Mia T, 02.02.06



The clintons, as is their wont, are now taking this proxy scheme to even more outrageous extremes.

The latest: an actual hillary clinton proxy presidency, populated on both sides of the camera by assorted rodham and clinton ex-staffers, sycophants and should-be felons, witness the latest hire.

'Commander-in-Chief,' a show that sets out to crown a 'queen,' instead exposes the kitschy simplemindedness of Hollywood fantasy and the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego.

THE DANGER OF RUNNING VICARIOUSLY
Bill O'Reilly chews up and spits out the hillary clinton candidacy
(clip included)



unning vicariously, as we have argued, has its risks.

What was supposed to be Hollywood propaganda to make a hillary presidency marginally palatable has instead become a parable about missus clinton's own dystopian future.

ABC announced the other day that it is pulling "Commander-in-Chief" off the air "until spring." Missus clinton's proxy presidency, you see, has been in a ratings free fall ever since "American Idol" took it on.

In a perverse life-mirrors-art moment, support for the real-life missus clinton's presidency has plummeted, too. This even sans Rudy, her real-life "American Idol" opponent.

'Ars artia gratis.' Please!

Samuel Goldwyn must be turning over in his grave....


 

It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem.

G. K. Chesterton

 

... While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times.

These are not ordinary times. America is waging the global War on Terror; the uncharted territory of asymmetric netherworlds is the battlefield; the enemy is brutal, subhuman; the threat of global conflagration is real.

Defeating the enemy isn't sufficient. For America to prevail, she must also defeat a retrograde, misogynous mindset. To successfully prosecute the War on Terror, it is essential that the collective patriarchal islamic culture perceives America as politically and militarily strong. Condi Rice excepted, this requirement presents an insurmountable hurdle for any female presidential candidate, and especially missus clinton, historically antimilitary--(an image, incidentally, that is only enhanced today by her clumsy, termagant parody of Thatcher), forever the pitiful victim, and, according to Dick Morris, "the biggest dove in the clinton administration."

It is ironic that had the clintons not failed utterly to fight terrorism... not failed to take bin Laden from Sudan... not failed repeatedly to decapitate a nascent, still stoppable al Qaeda... the generic female president as a construct would still be viable... missus clinton's obstacles would be limited largely to standard-issue clintonisms: corruption, abuse, malpractice, malfeasance, megalomania, rape and treason... and, in spite of Juanita Broaddrick, or perhaps because of her, Rod Lurie would be reduced to perversely hawking the "First Gentleman" instead of the "Commander-in-Chief."

HILLARY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PROBLEM

CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE WORST KIND

... to borrow a phrase, perversely, from a Spielberg flick about benign intelligence.

Munich -- Spielberg fantasy wrapped in sober documentary -- with its false premises, phony pieties and outright lies, is a verisimilitudinous contrivance that is pernicious, especially now, especially here, especially if we understand Spielberg's real motivation.

Truth matters not at all to Spielberg, and courage matters even less. To advance his fallacious argument, he has Golda Meir speak words she never said, never would have said and, obviously, cannot now disavow. Posthumous misappropriation is a preferred tactic of the abject coward.

Munich is less about Meir avenging the Munich massacre than it is about Bush waging the War on Terror. The historical (Munich) allusion is key to understanding Spielberg.

The core of his anti-war argument:
By fighting back, we become our enemy. Ironically, with Munich, the same can now be said of Spielberg.

Is Spielberg humanizing the terrorist really any different from Riefenstahl humanizing Hitler? If anything, Spielberg is more contemptible. Whereas Riefenstahl symbolizes the naïve actress and director who is induced to deal with devils, Spielberg is self-actuated and aware.

Hollywood is DreamWorks, fantastical and unthinking and solipsistic by definition.

To mitigate its danger, people capable of critical thinking must take on Hollywood... and must do so in Hollywood venues.

The printed word, sad to say, no longer carries the day.

ON REJIGGING GALLUP'S LOSING NUMBERS FOR HILLARY
THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE OF ANNE KORNBLUT

by Chris Matthews, Anne Kornblut + Dana Milbank

(with annotations by Mia T), 01.26.06



EXCERPT:

This is HARDBALL on MSNBC.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

[NOTE: My comments in blue.]

MATTHEWS:  We're back with Anne Kornblut of "The New York Times" and Dana Milbank of "The Washington Post."  Let's talk about Gotham's candidates for president.

First, Rudolph Giuliani, the pro-choice, pro-gay rights, former mayor spent today, or the day in Orlando speaking to a conference of Evangelicals. 

Dana, he's up to it, isn't he?  This is below the radar.  This is Rudy campaigning for president in the south. 

MILBANK:  This is about as convincing as Jerry Falwell at the gay pride parade. 

MATTHEWS:  You don't buy this? 

MILBANK:  Well, he can try to do it.  But, look, he faces an awful uphill battle in winning over the typical Republican voter in a primary.  Now, if the election was fought on national security, he is fine.  But he's never going to convince them that he is one of them, that he is a religious conservative. 

KORNBLUT:  Right and not only that, but he's going to be in a death struggle with John McCain for the exact same constituency. 

MATTHEWS:  Let me tell you something.  I'll say it here a thousand time.  Watch Rudolph Giuliani.  Watch him.  Security is the issue in this country.  Whoever is the next president is going to be seen as more on the ball than even this president on security and terrorism.  This country is not going sort on terrorism.  We are going to get smarter on it is my hunch.

And Rudy is the guy to do it.  And he can be an SOB in many ways.  But this country may really want an SOB, a really tough cop as the next president.  So watch Rudy, I'm saying it.


Now here is Hillary Clinton, that other New Yorker in the subway series.  A new Gallup poll just came out.  "USA TODAY" Gallup poll, it shows that 16 percent say that they'll definitely vote for Hillary right now, 32 percent say they might vote for her. 

But here's the dagger in the back.  Fifty-one percent say they would definitely not vote for Hillary Clinton already the campaign hasn't begun. 

KORNBLUT:  I mean, this is exactly what Democrats are worried about is that already people have made up their minds.  I would argue, I guess, that it is awfully early.  We all know how early it is to be talking about this. 

MATTHEWS:  Definitely. 

KORNBLUT:  Definitely?  What does definitely mean?  [Definitely means DEFINITELY.] You know, you would have to see how is the question exactly phrased, all that stuff.  It is early. [Actually Anne, it is late. In fact, it is too late. The country knows exactly who this woman is, Anne.]

MATTHEWS:  But there's lot of tooth behind that.  If somebody tells a pollster, I've already made up my mind definitely. 

KORNBLUT:  And, look, I know more Democrats who believe this though than Republicans.  A lot of Republicans say that this is a deceptive number, that once she gets out there with all of her money running against who, Giuliani or McCain, the numbers may not be that weak.  [She has 100% name recognition, Anne. You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear. Even when the sow isn't hillary.]

MATTHEWS:  How much of that is don't throw me in that briar patch, Dana?  We're so afraid of Hillary.  Please don't run her against us.  She'll kill us. 

MILBANK:  Anne is right that these polls are completely useless because you don't know what the alternative is.  But the fact is that she...  [Earth to Dana: 51% would vote for their mother-in-law before they would vote for HER.]

MATTHEWS:  OK.  McCain against Hillary.  Who wins? 

 

MILBANK:  Well, that's fine.  If you can tell me that's how it is going to turn out.  But we don't know. 

MATTHEWS:  Well, let me ask you about these definite numbers in a poll.  Do you believe the definite?  Do you believe somebody right in 2006 knows how they are going to vote in 2008?

MILBANK:  I think they definitely think that's what they are going to do right now, but they have no idea what they are going to be doing in a couple years.  And Hillary is going to have the opposite problem of Rudy.  And that is she's absolutely fine with her base if she decides to run.  But she is seemingly incapable of crossing over. 

MATTHEWS:  The poll was taken over the week right through Sunday, the Gallup poll.  And the Gallup poll is, of course, the most prestigious poll there is right now and has been for years. 

Dana, do you think she's paying the price for her plantation remark last week? 

MILBANK:  Probably not.  Because, once again, plays very well the base.  The people who were objecting to it were never going to support her in the first case.  And I really think the only thing that this is right now is do people recognize her name.  [What is it you don't understand, here? We recognize her name, yes. And we abhor the person attached to that name. Get it?]

KORNBLUT:  And I would add to that.  It's 51 percent say definitely not.  Remember the margin that's we've been talking about in the last few presidential races, 51 percent is terrible, but all she would have to do is bump it by a few numbers, a few percentage points and be OK.  [I can see why Pinch hired you, Anne. Your Alice-in-Wonderland illogic is quintessential New York Times. With 100% name recognition and roughly 10% corruption recognition (thanks in no small measure to your rag), missus clinton has only one way to go. And it isn't up.]

... Anyway, thank you Anne Kornblut of "The New York Times," Dana Milbank of "The Washington Post." 

Join us again tomorrow night at 5:00 and 7:00 Eastern for more HARDBALL.  Right now it is time for "THE ABRAM'S REPORT" with Dan.

HARDBALL WITH CHRIS MATTHEWS
January 25, 2006


December 7, 1941+64

AN OPEN LETTER TO TIM ROBBINS, DAVID GEFFEN, CHRIS MATTHEWS, MAUREEN DOWD + JEANINE PIRRO

RE: a not-so-modest proposal concerning hillary clinton



Dear Concerned Americans,

Hillary Clinton's revisionist tome notwithstanding, 'living history' begets a certain symmetry. It is in that light that I make this not-so-modest proposal on this day, exactly 64 years after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The context of our concern today--regardless of political affiliation--is Iraq and The War on Terror, but the larger fear is that our democracy may not survive.

We have the requisite machines, power and know-how to defeat the enemy in Iraq and elsewhere, but do we have the will?

In particular, do we have the will to identify and defeat the enemy in our midst?

Answerable to no one, heir apparent in her own mind, self-serving in the extreme, Hillary Clinton incarnates this insidious new threat to our survival.

What we decide to do about Missus Clinton will tell us much about what awaits us in these perilous new times.

"Hillary's facial features helped" ...................... scare away the pigeons hanging out on the old Gulf Bldg. here in Pittsburgh.

Young conservatives have found a way to keep the concrete clean................ frightening picture's of Hillary under glass, and a family of peregrine falcons has defied nature by building its nest on top of the Gulf Building. Peregrine falcons prefer to live on the edges of cliffs, but in this case, these magnificent birds-of-prey find the Gulf Building to be an adequate substitute nesting area and the resident pigeons plentiful prey.

Hillary lurks also.

Great job as usual, Mia T.!!

I think you're the only person who dislikes Hillary MORE than I do :-)

If you really want to have some fun, let's consider Hillary's V.P. choices if the democRATS decide to commit political suicide by nominating her.

For starters: John Edwards? No. He's prettier than Hillary and has a better figure, and better hair.

Governor Richardson? No. He's actually duller than Hillary

Evan Bayh? No. He'd make Hillary look stupid, and even more liberal than she is. And, he would out shine her, and make people wonder why Evan Bayh was not the nominee. Hillary would NEVER stand for that.


Any other potential scenarios?? Let's have some fun here!!

Hillary's facial features

Actually, this 'experiment' was a setup.

Social and experimental psychologists had determined decades ago that there is a correlation between facial features and presumed character traits.

The facial features in that idealized photo of hillary (e.g., wideset blue eyes, (surgery-assisted) absence of a frown) is consistent with positive presumed character traits. Conversely, McCain's features, e.g., the beady eyes, the frown) correlate with negative assumptions.

BILL MAHER WARNS DEMOCRATS:
HILLARY WILL TAKE YOU OVER A CLIFF IN '08



First of all, she will never win the presidency. The people who are worrying about that should stop worrying. She will never be elected president of this country. The democrats should buddy up to that concept before they walk over the cliff with her in 2008.

"Governor Richardson? No. He's actually duller than Hillary"

Dull is not my fear!!!

I do think Richardson will be the VP - he's already grooming himself for the job.

The only change might be - if the wind says we aren't ready for hillary - then Richardson runs for Top Job and hillary for VP - and in that case I would suggest Richardson never turn his back, his front, his side, or better yet just count how many days it took to rid themselves of Foster!!!

One of the reasons they don't do 'nuance' is their conviction that we're a bunch of idiots.

Norman Mailer just last night railed about 52% of Americans being stupid. Now while he has a point, statistically speaking, i.e., IQ's Gaussian distribution, he--and the rest of the leftist elitists miss the point.

Their fundamental error: They are too arrogant and dim-witted to understand that the demagogic process in this fiberoptic age isn't about counting spun heads; it's about not discounting circumambient brains.

While I agree that it is conceivable that the clinton agitprop machine and clinton corruption can overcome hillary's incompetence, repulsiveness, baggage and lethal danger, I disagree that a certain subgroup of Ds are not genuinely and strongly against her candidacy.

what these people -- Geffen, Ivins, Maher et al. -- have in common is that they care about their party; they know that hillary clinton is poison.

One thing about Richardson that may be a disqualifier: he exudes softness--not the sort of affect people want in wartime.

True - but 2 things. He is softish - would be the feminine part of the ticket and the media love him, covers him wherever he goes - in and out of the country. But.....

It will be interesting just how the media covers the newsbreaking story tonight about him. Could be a big one - it would be a big one if it were a Republican story!!!

$3.? million spent in new created/made-up State jobs.

The press does love him but I don't think anything remotely female sells during wartime. (See excerpt (above) from 'HILLARY'S COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PROBLEM.')

Was the story mentioned? I didn't hear it, but then, I skipped TV last night. ;)
