Uhhh, you've got that bassackwards (as usual). That's a woman who has had herself surgically altered to look like a Barbie doll.
ACtually, there is a photo of her before she had the bulb at the end of her nose reduced. She looks just about the same. You make assumptions you're ignorant of, as usual.
And, you are referencing the make up used. The makeup causes parts of the face to be highlighted in the photograph, and subdues other parts.
The girl in the photo is a fair representative of the common facial and body features of Russian women.
Perhaps you should go and look for yourself.

Couldn't agree with you more. The motivation behind the tea party movement was because Americans could foresee the future based on what we already knew about Barack Obama's past.
Now here we are. Where we knew we'd be.
Too bad Romney was a Mormon. I'm convinced his wealth wouldn't have been a factor. But Mormonism isn't popular among many Americans. A recent conviction of a leader of the LDS church who was a pedophile and who manipulated his church into child marriages didn't help the public image of Mormonism, and their history of polygamy more than likely also cost him the election. Perhaps, rightfully so. I don't get Mormonism either.
We have to get it right without fail - on all fronts - in 2016.
We picked the wrong candidate in 2012 and in 2008. That's the long and the short of it. Obama may have won in 2008 but, certainly, not in 2012 if we had gotten it right.
Thing is, there is no perfect candidate. Democrats think they have a monopoly on them but Republicans know any candidate will have some flaws, but the least baggage and the message has to win over the majority in 2016.
Foresee the future? What is wrong with American cities all resembling Detroit? That is our future and we Democrats are proud of the policies that have created it right down to the Howdy Doody Museum, affordable housing for less than $200 a property and all the leisure time residents enjoy because there are no jobs and they don't need to work anyway! My good friend Obama even gives them cell phones with their welfare cheese!

Here is where Aunt Batty Lou got her inside poop on the Weiner scandal:

A Fox News panel on Friday managed to expose the real story that the rest of the media has managed to miss in the New York City mayoral race: the deep Muslim Brotherhood ties that Huma Abedin supposedly possesses.

If I am elected Mayor of New York City, I too will put an end to Stop and Frisk. And then I will personally see to it that New Yorkers get to enjoy the high murder rates of other Democrat run cities, like Chicago, Newark and Detroit. So what if families have to sleep in bathtubs to avoid gun shots, its all fun much like sextexting. I plan to reassign all the extra police to upper income neighborhoods and make sure BMWs aren't doubleparked.

Must have been someone else. My position on war has been pretty clear, if the US isn't directly threatened we have no business engaging in war which makes most of our wars invalid IMO.
So we weren't threatened on 9/11?

And Hillary was wrong when she spoke on the Senate Floor in 2002 when she emphatically stated, "Saddam Hussein provided aid, comfort and sanctuary to terrorists including al-Qaeda members...if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare and will keep trying to develop chemical weapons..."?

Before she became a weasel for personal and political gain, I mean?

Yes, we should have had a better strategy in the event of a strong resurgence by Saddam's thugs and al-Qaeda making Iraq the frontlines. But the initial mission was, in fact, accomplished, and there are no crystal balls in war. Even Obama was forced to admit in an interview with O'Reilly the surge worked.

But Obama's early withdrawal of all troops in Iraq just threw all our precious blood and treasure right out the window.

No one is turned away from medical treatment even if they have no insurance and no money.

The solution is to make health care costs lower!!
