Is that what Andrew wanted me to think?

Andrew Sullivan has a "Face of the Day" feature. He doesn't tell us what to think of the face, so I'm torn between thinking about what I think of the face and what I think Andrew thinks or wants us to think of the face. With this one, of Judith Nathan listening to her husband Rudy Giuliani, I'm getting a total Nurse Ratched vibe. Is that just me or is that what Andrew wanted me to think?

I think you got it right Ann. It is like the back of the New Yorker...supply the caption on the cartoon contest....

"Jeeze I wish those guys endorsing him would shut up. He is going to be more full of himself than ever :("

I keep thinking, this is who he dumped Donna Hanover for?

Like Rudy is all that hot?

Andrew is happy with you asking 'what does Andrew want me to think?'; what you actually think is probably irrelevant.

Come on, you don't care about American Idol, which is understandable, but then you spend more than a couple seconds on Andrew Sullivan, and actually invest a some mental energy in trying to figure about what he thinks. Why?

You know, anyone and everyone takes a weird picture at some point. I've seen pictures of Angelina Jolie that make her look like someone you'd walk around if she were drawing chalk-art on a sidewalk.

So, Sullivan's meager efforts are really quite thin.

And, have you ever seen a picture of Andrew Sullivan that did NOT make you want to look away, wishing the moment had never happened?

Althouse thought process:
Hm... not sure what I'm supposed to think about this picture... what do the popular girls think... better say something bitchy.

I think if the picture does give off the Nurse Ratched vibe, Andrew probably posted it specifically thinking of you, Althouse, because of your recent frequent cites and references to One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest; and Andrew knows you read his blog.

So yes, that's what Andrew wanted you to think.

I think he's sending you subliminal messages through his blog!

That's a good match, Ann! I think a more accurate caption would have been, "Nurse Judith Nathan keeps a watchful eye on a photographer while her husband Rudy Giuliani talks", but that's a quibble...

I'm seeing a "I'm really thinking about something else because I've heard this speech a few times already" thing.

Did she do the subtle nod that Mrs. Bill Clinton was known for?

Maxine Weiss said...

Well it certainly isn't "The Gaze" ala Mrs. Reagan, now is it.

It ain't Camelot either.

Sigh.

I wonder if we'll ever see that kind of romance, and glamour in the White House again?

Peace, Maxine

There's something refreshing about a rich and powerful man dumping his wife for an *uglier* woman, though.
