Yikes! Our new V.P. looks scary in this photo....
Condi Rice Death Ray Eyes

PhotoshopNews: USA Today accused of bad Photoshop job

It was pointed out on From The Pen web site that a recent photograph of Condoleezza Rice that accompanied an article in USA Today was poorly retouched.

The USA Today version on the right was deliberately altered to make Condi Rice look more menacing. Notice how the whites of the eyes are highlighted to make her BLACK eyes look BLACKER and HATEFUL. The doctored photo is here on USA Today’s site (they’ll probably take it down with some heat). ...

Apparently, USA Today did take some heat since at some point the image was swapped out and an Editor’s note was placed on the article that read:
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 The photo has been replaced by a properly adjusted copy.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 what was Ms. Rice babbling about anyway?

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice declined on Wednesday to rule out American forces still being needed in Iraq a decade from now. Senators warned that the Bush administration must play it straight with the public or risk losing public support for the war.
Pushed by senators from both parties to define the limits of U.S. involvement in Iraq and the Middle East, Rice also declined to rule out the use of military force in Iran or Syria

No wonder! She was giving the Death Star eyes to the Syrians!
