This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

That's a MAN, baby!


As my sister Karla will likely say when she stops by this post, "Aaaaargh! It burns. It BURRRRRRRRNS!!!!!"

These are the only two pictures I could find of Debra Cagan on the internets. She is currently Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Coalition and Multinational Operations, but she has had plenty of gummint jobs, including working for the supreme allied commander of NATO and on staff at the embassy in Russia under Clinton. She's in the news this week because a British paper reported that she said "I hate all Iranians" in a meeting with British MPs. A weak denial of "That doesn't sound like Debra" has been produced, but three of the six folks at the meeting have confirmed that in fact, it sounds exactly like Debra.

Making fun of the clothes and haircuts of people in Washington is usually Princess Sparkle Pony's job, but the Princess has decided that "Debra Cagan is hideous" is comment enough, so it's open season for the rest of us. The strange pendant in the picture on the right is a medal from a ceremony in Hungary. All the other fashion choices are hers and hers alone.

Even as a progressive, I tire of the jokes about Ann Coulter's adam's apple and possible surgical alterations. But looking at Ms. Cagan, the post-op, pre-op, no-op and co-op transsexual jokes are just lying there, like eggs on the White House lawn on Easter. Go, you crazy kids! Go find as many jokes as you can!

I does burn - so much so that I've lost the capacity for rational thought!

I keep getting a "Boys From Brazil" vibe, and "Amy Winehouse at 50," but that's all I can do.

Need. Help. Must stop staring at the ... ugh.

It wouldn't help much if she was photographed by the best professionals, but the lighting in each shot is horrific, and horrific in a different way. On the left, it looks like her skin is leather being tanned, and on the right, it's like something from an undead monster movie.

i do believe "Lady Apple of the Adam" has indeed found her "Knight in Shining Reichstaag". i wish we had better photos of Cagan. it would be SO much fun to play with the two of them as a couple....

don't forget to sing the song: SHINY HATEY PEOPLE BOMB IRAN

I have had several people looking SPECIFICALLY for pictures of Debra Cagan.

I don't know what is scarier: her pictures or people looking hard to find her pictures.

YACGHK! Wow. That is really creepy. I think she definitely had the same "work" done as that nazi Coulter did. Blech.

I think the blogs better off with the Lolz cat pictures. Save the Cagan shots for Halloween night.
