  1. I think her political career just went tits up!

  2. Looks like her campaign’s gone all pear-shaped.

  3. I’m sure she’ll sag at the polls.

    (Sorry, just had to join in.)

  4. Perhaps a “brain job” would have given her the ability to recognize that it’s much more difficult these days for candidates and politicians to get away with lies. But then, self-absorbed opportunists are renowned for their tunnel-vision. Or, to be generous, maybe she thought nobody would care if she lied. Her fluffer, um, campaign manager (one and the same?) should have known better.

  5. Well, lots of people pay lip service *snicker* to the whole “all natural” thing, and it would seem a whole lot of companies trade on that very idea and line, so it could only be so niche – unless they’ve all gone mad, which is not to say it’s impossible.

    You have to figure in *snicker* the cultural obsession with “natural”, from food to breasts to behavior to every other damn thing. It’s downright unnatural, if you ask me, but then again I think the whole natural-artificial idea is a fundamentally wrong artifact of utterly obsoleted scientific and philosophical theories and understanding of the world. Humans are as natural as anything else, and anything they do is no more or less natural than anything any other animal does; and as animals themselves are the result of ‘natural’ forces, I fail to see the meaningfulness other than strictly to judge distinct living things from non-living ones, which is itself a largely useless exercise.

    When one studies other cultures and takes to critically analyzing them all, you find some pretty incredibly absurd stuff; the modern age is not so modern as one might otherwise be lead to believe (it would seem the rule that only technology becomes significantly different from age to age – humans really haven’t changed much at all, as the flesh and blood of today is not significantly different from the flesh and flood of our distant human ancestors).

  6. ^plutarck: your second paragraph was my response to the economist/shell “do we need nature” essay in a nutshell.

  7. Her political advisor must be a real boob.

  8. I sometimes wonder how well porn stars understand their market. I would suspect that some .0001% of her customer base was concerned with the ‘all natual’ line. I mean, I know that you have to make your product stand out from the competition, as it were, but you have to believe that your deceit will come back to haunt you when you embark on the public service phase of your career.

    That said, can’t we leave our heroes alone? Will someone next tell us that Gary Coleman is 6’2?
