KERRY ON ORANGE ALERT: SKIN TRANSITION ON EVE OF DEBATE (EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!)

KERRY ON ORANGE ALERT: SKIN TRANSITION ON EVE OF DEBATE

Is it the late September Wisconsin sun that has turned Dem presidential hopeful John Kerry's face to rich tan-colored hues? Or has the senator been campaigning in the rust-belt?

Kerry advisers defend the sudden deep tan transition, noting how it simply was from a game of flag football last Friday in Bedford, Mass.

But the College Democrats who met Kerry were surprised by his rich tan glow -- before the game even began, the HARVARD CRIMSON reports.

He was wearing gloves during the game? Because his hands are much lighter in color than his face.

The sun is to low at this time of year to get a tan like that in so short a time. I happen to live in the north also and know this for a fact. He must have used some skin tan lotion. To bad he did not use some face eraser.

It would appear that he did not get the full body spray on tan.

I betcha the tan in a bottle was Teresa's idea.

From the article:

“I have this hero worship for Kerry so meeting him was amazing. Everyone was shaking when we shook his hand,” said the New York voter. “There’s very little you could say at first...you are meeting your political hero.”

Or maybe he wants to look like a golfer, or a wind surfer, or snow skier, or tour de France entrant, or....

Forget it Kerry, your a fake through and through.

Get this from the Crimson article:

Raquel O. Alvarenga ’07, said she enjoyed the brief interaction with members of the Kerry entourage.

“I have this hero worship for Kerry so meeting him was amazing. Everyone was shaking when we shook his hand,” said the New York voter. “There’s very little you could say at first...you are meeting your political hero.”

Kristina M. Moore ’08, who has been in college only two weeks was equally impressed with her chance to meet the Democratic presidential nominee.

“To get a handshake and a word with John Kerry was just absolutely amazing,” she said. “Absolutely unbelievable...a little surreal.”

I expected to see "oh John, oh oh oh oh OHHH JOHNNNNN !!!!

This is being discussed here

Some of the funniest stuff I have seen on FR since the diarama thread. Here is a sample.

--------------------------
Kerry sits down at a bar.
Bartender asks him:
"Why the Orange face?"
--------------------------

I can see the opening exchange at the debate on Thursday as Kerry attempts to diffuse comments about his complexion.

Kerry: I'm tan from the sun

Bush: I'm George from the earth
--------------------------
Wouldn't his palms be orange too??

Check John Edwards' palms ...

I'd like to see him with his eyes closed, most people who use tan-in-a-can forget to do their eye lids. The tan itself might be fake, but the fact that he could get a tan is true.
