    First of all, I have to admit that I’ve always been afraid of clowns. Not a big deal, but they freak me out. I also have a deep-seated fear of Republicans. Combine the two, and I feel like wetting my pants and hiding under the bed.

  2. NoWireHangers

    It’s the Insane Clown Possee but with fewer matted dreads and braided beards!

  3. tunamelt

    Oh, oh Christ. Do you know how much I’m going to have to drink to black these out from my brain?

  4. suchsweetthunder

    Photoshopping politicians to look like clowns . . . it’s just so spectacularly unclever. I’d be willing to wager all my money that the images were made by a Republican, if all the targets weren’t also Republicans.

    [re=309931]magic titty[/re]: michelle will never know, she’s not man, or boy, enough for him.

  6. freakishlystrong

    [re=309936]NoWireHangers[/re]: Well, if the clown makeup fits..and all that!

  7. tunamelt

    I finally clicked through to the Flickr photoset and now I’m going to curl under my desk and rock back and forth in fetal position, weeping, for a bit.

  8. rev_matt_y

    Man, I wish I had the free time to come up with crap like this. Not that I would, I just wish I had that kind of time…

  9. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Oh please. The Flickr pic is just Michele after she did her hair. You want scary? Here’s the before.

  10. Big Liver

    It’s creepy for sure, but after going to the website and seeing them all, it also started to seem pretty funny, but in a creepy way. I like the one of Sarah Palin.

  11. 19kevin8

    [re=309971]Custerwolf[/re]: That’s a terrible, terrible thing to put into people’s minds.
    I do wonder…

  12. hobospacejunkie

    I’m so confused. I thought it was real. Then realized it wasn’t. Then thought yeah, they are clowns, but no longer scary. At least since it’s not real I can continue to say “I’d hit it” about Michelle Bachmann. Otherwise it might have turned me against her.

  13. chitownlib

    Peggington’s is the best. It’s what she looked like when contemplating the DC Inauguration rickshaw ride.

  14. hobospacejunkie

    Also, this isn’t so much clown as the facial equivalent of putting rhinestones and whatnot all over your face. Or maybe actual human blingees. Too many colors for real clowns. The more different colors, the less horribly frightening.

  15. Custerwolf

    [re=310079]hobospacejunkie[/re]: Putting on this kind of game face might just add some subtlety to her next screed.

  16. Custerwolf

    [re=310080]cranky[/re]: “Disarticulate.”
    I believe that word definies what Sarah Palin and George Bush do to any idea they try to communicate.

  17. One Yield Regular

    Clearly issued by the Department of Redundancy Department, nyuck nyuck nyuck. (Actually I hate these; they’re the visual equivalent of Vegas-nightclub-style jokes about politicians=idiots, and what’s more: clowns, ick).

  18. DeLand DeLakes

    Oh, fuck you, Ken. My whole family lives in Bachmann’s district, and now I have to fear for their safety even more than usual, as I sob while curled into a ball.

  19. cranky

    [re=310121]Min[/re]: oooh, that’s going to be tough, creasing is the enemy of maximum fill. five, maybe six if you shave off the helmet-hair first.

  20. President Beeblebrox

    Oh I get it, it’s shooped. I almost had a heart attack there.

    Although seeing Limbaugh and Boehner as Violent J and Shaggy would be teh cool.

    Not to mention Michael Steele as Homie the Clown.


  21. TheTeeth


    Oh, sure, it’s all funny games when the Lefties do this, but when I photoshop obama holding bucket of fried chicken & a shrunken head on a pole, people are all like ‘racism’ and stuff.

  22. viviangrrrl

    [re=309971]Custerwolf[/re]: you’re so dirty! it really IS a good question though. The makeup makes me think “cotton candy”, but then I remember what she actually looks like, and I think “rancid sour arugula”.

  23. Mad Farmer Manifest

    [re=309953]NoWireHangers[/re]: That what I thought. Holy shit, Rush looks like Pennywise. Come to think of it, I’ve never seen them both at the same time…

  24. mrpuma2u

    [re=309971]Custerwolf[/re]: I am assuming that A Michelle B boink would be grudge secks, and that should never involve something that might actually gratify her, this would deviate grossly from her normal sexual experience, she would be neither ready nor appreciative.

  25. Knob Gobbler

    Rush looks like John Wayne Gacy. You don’t suppose….nah..couldn’t be…

  26. RoscoePColtraine

    It totally looks like her. With a major case of chapped lips, and the fetid blood/serum/pus fluid from Rush’s anal cyst still clinging to her nose.
