You don't need to indicate that Rumsfeld is evil by squishing his eyes and yellowing his teeth. A simple shot of the man's unaltered face would have sufficed.

Rumsfeld has some good advice on liars and the fact that they get away with it here:

Here's the original photo (BB won't let me post the intact image link, just remove the first space):
Seems his skin tone was paled up some as well.
Shame on whoever 'shopped that photo. I'm not a Rumsfeld fan to be sure, but that sort of bullshit (like what Fox News did with those two NYT employee photos a few years back) is malicious.

I always thought his horns sat a little farther forward. Thanks for clearing that up for me

Or like USA Today did with Condoleezza Rice (unaltered).

Rumsfeld's quote about known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns has been helpful to me a number of times. But I'm pretty sure he was badly paraphrasing someone else when he said that. If someone could Google that for me, I'd appreciate it.

This is still the best manipulation

Hey, hey, but they're Just A Blog(TM).
Just ignore that they're a really hugely popular website that has video service on Virgin Airways, and ignore those Ford ads with the BoingBoing-branded and Make-branded cars. Ignore that it's a valuable media property and remember that it's just a blog.

So that's what happened to the poor bastard's body.

That's such an old-fashioned pre-digital view of things!

Amen. Unnecessary at best.

So Newt explained why he was so oily and sweaty... good show.

But the new one, "Even a broken clock can be repurposed into a low-power Raspberry Pi peripheral" doesn't have the same punch...
