Where’s Hillary? Hasidic paper breaks the rules by editing (too sexy) Clinton out of photo
Yahoo ^

Posted on 05/09/2011 12:28:01 PM PDT by dead

Hillary Clinton's expression, right hand clasped over her mouth in astonishment, is largely responsible for making the above photo iconic--and, to at least one newspaper, sexually suggestive...

< snip >

Turns out she was probably just coughing during that crucial moment captured by White House photographer Pete Souza. But nevertheless, the image still proved a bit too racy for at least one of the many newspapers that printed it.

That would be the Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic broadsheet Der Tzitung. The paper photoshopped Clinton, as well as the only other woman who could be seen in the room--Audrey Tomason, the national director of counterterrorism--out of the frame.

"Apparently the presence of a woman, any woman, being all womanly and sexy all over the United States' counterterrorism efforts was too much for the editors of Der Tzitung to handle," noted the prominent women's blog Jezebel.

Indeed, "The Hasidic newspaper will not intentionally include any images of women in the paper because it could be considered sexually suggestive," Rabbi Jason Miller explains in The Jewish Week.

Also, please not the following rules!

Beyond that, Der Tzitung's editors apparently missed or blatantly ignored the guidelines stipulated on the official White House Flickr page, where the photo was released for use by news organizations: "The photograph may not be manipulated in any way."

That is the first time “hillary clinton” and “sexy” have been used in the same document (much less sentence).

How can that 20-something year old woman be the “National Director for Counterterrorism” of the United States government? I thought the Clinton administration was bad about letting recent college grads get promoted way beyond their experience level. Can anyone here imagine that she is the country’s #1 expert on that subject?!!

Why aren't images of men considered sexually suggestive? Or is it OK in the Hasidic tradition for women to get turned on, just not men?

Too sexy? I figured her thighs were as big as country hams and they couldn’t show pork—especially if it weren’t Kosher.

Would be nice if we could just photoshop Hitlery out of our government and put her photoshop her into prison jammies for her numerous felonies committed while in our White House.

But suggesting that any picture of her is "sexy" is very bizarre.

Similarly, Yahoo! News apparently missed or blatantly ignored Adobe's insistence that the title of their trademarked software 'Photoshop' not be used as a common noun or as a verb (as it is in this article).

“Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Missouri School of Mines”

Isn't appointing such a dilbert to a vital national security position a high crime or misdemeanor?

She worked in the CIA for over a decade before being appointed to her current position and she is an assistant, so she may not actually be in a decision making position. She may be one of the people who make the wheels go ‘round, so to speak.

As far as I can tell, that is the only photo of her available on the Internet.

They did it solely for publicity. Nothing more. No ‘religious’ reason.

If they had a problem with women in the picture, then simply don’t print the picture. What they did is a ‘lie’. There is nothing ‘holy’ or ‘tsadik’ about that.

It was just a cheap publicity stunt.

From what can be seen, Audrey Tomason apparently earned her undergraduate in 1999 and her graduate degree in 2003.
My feeling is that a few more years working in the trenches would help guide critical decisions that will impact Americans for years.
I'm not so sure I want a 33-year-old guiding the POTUS and it is certainly unnerving a sitting POTUS is heavily relying upon a 33-year-old for crucial decisions.

Yes ... roads, bridges, giant construction equipment. It does seem appropriate to someone with a Civil Engineering degree from the School of Mines.

I think the school has changed its name since my cousin Tim and the Democrat lady who must be closer to 40 than 30 went there. The Missouri state colleges went through a renaming flurry about ten years ago, and did things like changing “North East Missouri State University” to “Truman State University.” Not that that’s bad, although I’d have liked “Pershing State” better. At least attendees probably learn who Truman was.

“She worked in the CIA for over a decade”

In a CIA politicized by Beelzebubba and not cleaned out by Bush. I don’t consider that to be a recommendation.

“she is an assistant, so she may not actually be in a decision making position.”

Surely a person must possess a certain set of KSAs to provide any assistance in that role.

“She may be one of the people who make the wheels go ‘round, so to speak.”

You mean a “Monica?” Could be just a straight-up affirmative action/nepotism hire.

Several of the very traditional Jewish newspapers do not print photos of any women, sexy or no. It’s just a custom. Amazing to me that it was photoshopped though!
