Absolutely. Shes a reporter. She knows where sasquatch lives. But enough about Ann Coulter, I hope the story dies a quick death before the new year.

Whispering campaigns = jealousy.

Kind of like someone said about Keith on another message board... A sexy guy who gets plenty of nookie. No wonder the tight-ass right wingers are jealous!

LOL, Nancy, I think you have it right.

I have my own notion about who started that, and she's well-funded and
definitely not Cuban.

Marie, you did not include the "illustration" that came with this article. It's kinda nasty, don't you think? Definitely designed to make him look like a "madman."

I can vouch for the Post-Gazette-it's Pittsburgh's oldest newspaper, dating back to 1786, and it's editorial stance is fairly progressive.

:LMAO I couldn't help it! I found it when rechecking Corbis Images. Believe it or not, it's from that same 1999 photo session that only two images were available from before. Obviously, the photographer, for whatever reason he was doing the shoot, had been asked to do some shots where Keith looked contrary or angry or "bad" somehow. Prior to this last look, though, I never saw those shots--or the ones he apparently did of Keith wearing a "devil" hood. (That's not Photoshop; he's actually wearing the horns!) The photographer must have decided to put up these images more recently; perhaps he thought they'd be saleable again thanks to Keith's developing a name.

Who knows, maybe he thought Keith's enemies would want them. Me? I want them because they make Keith look like a horny little devil! :drooler

Lunaris put the "devilish" KO pics up on Olberman Daily last week. If you haven't
gritted your teeth and soldiered through the Byzantine process of registering over
there, you really should. http://community.livejournal.com/ko_daily/ It's free, but
the pics are for members only.

About that cartoon, Kathy -- I added a belated postscript to my OP explaining that
I left it out because I don't like it. It's been a growing trend to draw grotesque
caricatures just to be stylish, which IMO interferes with the whole notion of what
caricatures are for.

I have an urge to post the Taco John logo up there instead -- it looks more like Keith!
(I believe he even acknowledged that it does!)

Still on about caricatures:
Why doesn't Keith have a Hirschfeld? He and Dan should've already had a
Hirschfeld when they were on SportsCenter!

I admit, I haven't. If it's that complicated, I've been reluctant to do it if it means mostly what I get is screen caps--charming as they may be.

I don't know, to me it's like LiveJournal is a whole different animal of fan. It's like a hotbed of Punditslash over there and that's never really been my cup of tea.

Yeah, I just think it looks creepy. Every time I look at the eyes I am reminded of the eyes on that World's Ugliest Dog. You know, they look all fuzzy and blinded over from cataracts or something.

Now THAT is funny! The Taco John logo definitely looks like Keith during his "porn mustache" days!

Olbermann Daily was set up specifically for pictures, but often there are sassy
comments to go along with them, too.

I'm mad for Keithcaps, so I'd brave the wilds of Borneo if it meant more lovely images
of Keith to gaze upon.

The eyes reminded me of the kids in Village of the Damned. And what was
with that long neck???

I'm not able to open a new topic, so I'm adding this here, since it seems to be close to the right spot! This article about Keith appeared in The Nation this week. It's pretty good! PDT_Love_27
