Obama vs Karloff Death Stare

Over on Althouse there is a post about Rush Limbaugh comparing Obama at the health care summit to Boris Karloff Is this a fair description of the way Obama looked?.

Chip Ahoy must be busy today since I can't find his response to this challenge in the thread. Well I had to give it a shot myself so here are my results, I don't think Rush was being unfair.

I still think Karloff had more class, more style, and certainly better manners...

Try this.

And notice Boris seems to have the Obama finger extended.

I think this Karloff photo is a lot closer...

Count me with bobdobalino: it made my heart leap for joy to see I'd found a fellow believer who is not ashamed. Keep up the good work!

Peano and Moog Rogue's take on Boris is better, AND it has the added advantage of looking SO much like Rahm!

Hey, comrades, I've posted a couple of articles on health care debate on my blog. They are a bit too long to be reproduced here in their entirety, so I am leaving the links. I believe these posts are mildly amusing.

Obama answered every question with a thoughtful, comprehensive response

Obama's shooting rays of hatred at Ryan or whoever. It is not just his eyes caught up in it, but his mouth and nose, too. That's where you capture the visceral, gut deep animus. If your hand is by your face, as in the pix, normally only one side of the mouth goes up. That doesn't happen in this pix. Instead, what you see is the finger, the curve of the mouth, and the hatred in the eyes. That tells me the finger against the face is a birdie being flipped cuz though the index is there, the middle finger is forefront. The eyes and such show no sign of the fingers being pressed against the face; that tells me his face is not resting on his hand but his fingers are resting AGAINST his face. Therefore, I say he's flipping Ryan the bird and showing his hatred and disdain.

Boris Karloff's not flipping the bird. In that pix his index finger, like all his fingers, is extended.
