Here's the thing. Many of us tend to see people as a merged blend of their physical appearance and their inner character, kind of mushed together and not clearly distinguishable. At least I do. And that's what makes Conway so uniquely hideous. On an attractiveness scale of 1-10, her score is "irredeemably repulsive" from any possible perspective that I can summon.

What I'm saying is, the salt vampire comparison is too kind. The idea that such a person could have an attractive inner character -- could be insightful, thoughtful, and kind -- is a non-starter because such a person wouldn't have that vacant hypocritical plastered-on grin or decorate herself in such a repulsive way, or be such a shameless opportunist or incorrigible liar. It's all a package. And the package looks hideously reptilian.

The link I gave earlier in the thread pretty much says it all in terms of her lack of ethics, honesty, integrity, or veracity of anything that comes out of her mouth.

But I don't think that it's sexist or superficial to go after her haggard appearance which is no doubt at least partly the result of internalizing the guilt. If she were beautiful on the inside I doubt too many would enjoy attacking her appearance.

Such as it is though... in the right light she kind of resembles Bill Clinton in drag.

As much scorn and ridicule that Kellyanne and Sean Spicer get thrown at them, they seem to think unswerving loyalty to Trump will somehow benefit them. How does Trump manage to find such willing stooges? Money? Prestige? Ability to attract the willingly stupid?

People have been mocking the worthless piece of shit Republicans and Nazis cheer for because of his looks (the ridiculous hair, the tiny hands, the vanity tan, his poor dress sense) for months with no problem, I don't see why mocking the scum who work for him in a similar manner is any different.

Yes.

Quote:
President Trump has chosen the husband of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway to head the civil division of the Department of Justice, the Wall Street Journal reported.

George Conway was chosen to head the office that has responsibility for defending the administration's proposed travel ban and defending lawsuits filed against the administration, the newspaper reported.
They aren't his stooges. He is theirs.

Good for him! He sees it as a positive step in his life and he's actively trying to control and manage his life so he can be happier.
I just feel badly that... forever forward... people are going to link him with Kellyanne Conway....

The Wicked Witch of the Westwing. Trump is a member of the Lollipop Guild (he's the one on the right in this early photo).

What is it like to live with this kind of cognitive dissonance? How does she face the mirror in the morning, let alone show up to an event like this?

I don't think it is cognitive dissonance. I think she knows exactly what she is saying and doing, with no conflict at all. I believe she knows it is all lies and misdirection, and it is deliberate. That in my book, is worse. Ignorance or stupidity could be forgiven. But not this.

I am failing to see how being "called out*" as a liar is sexist.

*an eye roll isn't exactly a "call out", but in this context, it communicated his thoughts well.

No, its just her way of telling Anderson that she wants to give him a hummer.

I was watching AC360 that night because, well, I was supposed to be on it. They came to my clinic and interviewed me earlier that day about how rolling back the Medicaid expansion could affect jobs in our region. The piece got bumped after the Comey news hit, much to the chagrin of my entire extended family.

I wasn't even mad about it, though, because it meant we got to see that virtuoso performance from Kellyanne. It's always a pleasure to watch a true artiste at work in her medium, and Conway is the Picasso of political turd-polishing.

As I saw on Twitter recently, every time Conway talks, she sounds like a cheating woman standing in front of the closet her lover is in, talking to the husband who came home early.

She does "that thing" with her hand going to her head all the time. That weird hair flip touch thing. She does some sort of weird creepy grin too. I think it's some sort of "tell" that a real whopper is coming.

She can also breathe through her ears, and has no "gag reflex" whatsoever. The procedures she practiced to master such skills are open to speculation.

More likely that her long-ish absence from public view was due to a bit of facial nip-and-tuck.

I have an alternate theory. It's a bit out there, I gotta warn you.

There's an old Jewish legend/folk tale about the golem, an animate construct made of clay which is sort of a fantasy robot. In the legend, the golem is alive because there's a bit of paper in its head upon which a very devout rabbi wrote the word "Emet", meaning "truth". Then the golem goes apeshit, as robots are wont to, and the rabbi has to end its life by rubbing off the first letter. The bit of paper now says "Met", death, and the golem dies.

I believe Kellyane Conway is, in fact, a golem. I mean, had you ever heard of her before she appeared as Trump's campaign strategist ? No, no you hadn't. That's because Donald molded her out of raw sewage. And in her head he put a bit of paper that says "Whatever". And lo, she will keep on saying whatever comes to mind no matter how obvious the lie is ; and she will keep on doing so until someone rubs off "ever" to form the word "What." ; at which point she'll not die but start spouting nonsense nobody can even comprehend how they even relate to whatever was being discussed.

According to Anderson Cooper, it's already happened.
