FNC’s happy progressive warrior analyst Kirsten Powers got a bit surly today in her second Fox & Friends Weekend debate segment (on the presidential race) with conservative radio personality Mike Gallagher. In the first one, Kristen seemed to be her usual combative, cheerful self: However, in the second part, she got a bit testy with Gallagher as to who deserved the blame as to the Katrina disaster.
When Gallagher indicted the Dem mayor of New Orleans and the Dem governor of Louisiana for the emergency response, Kirsten acerbically responded, “You know, I don’t want to re-litigate Hurricane Katrina with you.” Seeking to quiet any animus, Alisyn Camerota intervened and said, “You guys are right and none of us do. Then she added, “Let’s just hope that three years later that all of those lessons on both sides have been learned and that Gustav will be handled much better.”
What might explain Kirsten’s anomalous departure from her generally amiable demeanor? One possible reason is that her cosmetic artist’s goof was on prominent display. Instead of hiding an apparent zit below her lower lip, the makeup made it sparkle in the camera’s gaze. Apparently, the makeup artist had used the wrong makeup, i.e., one that appears to hide an imperfection to the naked eye but amplifies it to the television camera with a shiny or glittering display.
Any teenage acne sufferer can commiserate with the attractive blonde pundit. A zit that shouts out its existence to the public is no laughing matter, especially one on the boob tube. Kirsten, it’ll go away soon or you’ll get a more knowledgeable cosmetic expert and all will be well again in the aesthetic world.
