Superendowed Cheney
image I believe that this picture might give me nightmares. Is it fake? Apparently not. It was taken by Dale Guldan, a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel photographer. It ran in the Journal Sentinel on Sept. 11, accompanying this article. The editors claim that they never noticed that strange bulge in Cheney's pants... until readers began pointing it out. So if the picture isn't fake, what could that bulge be? I refuse to believe, as many have jokingly suggested, that Dick is 'superendowed'. So if it's not that, could it be something in his pocket or attached to his leg? My theory is that it's either a security device, or an incontinence device. Whatever it is, I don't think they can blame this on poor tailoring. For more info see here. (click on the image for a larger version) (via blue lemur)

I'd say he's got a blackjack in his front pocket, just in case any kids on food stamps or peace activists try to come near him.

People noticed the remote informaiton wire-pack on Bush's back for the debates, so they put Cheney's in a different location?

You do that in Gimp. Gimp is "GNU Image Manipulation Program" for the Linux platform. With the photo loaded, right click on it and select Render...distort...IWarp assuming you have the IWarp plugin for Gimp. Click the "grow" option in IWarp and reduce the effect radius to a low number. I just gave Cheney a big 'ol WC Fields nose, but this is my first post here so I haven't figured out how to post pics. This method also works for breast enhancement of pictures of females!

In reply to the GIMP thing...this was supposed to have been an unedited newspaper photo...

If I had an incontinence device stuck to me, I'd probably be super-selfconcious. I don't know that I would act that relaxed. I would probably cross my legs, or hold something in my lap. If it were REAL, then it would have been a problem for his whole adult life & he would be used to it by now & would have been able to sit or wear clothes to keep from being conspicuous (sp?). It is supposedly an unedited newspaper photo...but has anyone looked at the negatives? It might have been edited by someone who was hoping to persuade voters or turn them from the Bush/Cheney vote.

(not to be a post-whore, but I just wanted to add something)

An article mentions that it went thru about a dozen editors...So, all editors look at 100% of the details? If that were true the phrase, "Cop shoots robber with knife," would never have happened. Also, I bet the editors that check out photos don't necessarily look for inaccuracies in the pictures themselves, but look at their placement on the page, or the color scale...not the crotch of the subject.

P.S. Maybe he has super-fat thighs!

Back when I was an editor, the main thing I checked photos for was to see if the picture matched the caption and the headline-- frequently they were inconsistent.

i've been a photo editor for 14 years. we always look for graphic stuff like that, it's just part of the job. there's no way that would have made it past any professional photo editor.

got to be a hoax.

he had a senior moment, popped a blue pill instead of the purple one.

Well, they do call him Dick... this has nothing to do with that Lynne Cheney business, I'm sure...
