Condoleezza Rice Watch: Goa’uld Eyes II

USA Today has removed the altered Photo of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.


The doctored photo of Condi Rice has been removed from USA Today’s website with this editor’s note:

Editor’s note: The photo of Condoleezza Rice that originally accompanied this story was altered in a manner that did not meet USA TODAY’s editorial standards. The photo has been replaced by a properly adjusted copy. Photos published online are routinely cropped for size and adjusted for brightness and sharpness to optimize their appearance. In this case, after sharpening the photo for clarity, the editor brightened a portion of Rice’s face, giving her eyes an unnatural appearance. This resulted in a distortion of the original not in keeping with our editorial standards.

And Flap thought Teal’c was going to try to tame her symbiote Goa’uld!

California Conservative has a good spoof with Hillary here.
