In that recent clip where Hillary explains why her hand was covering her mouth, why is her hair sticking straight out on one side of her head?

Asked by FutureMemory (24476points) May 5th, 2011

It looks ridiculous. That can’t be on purpose, can it?

Link? I haven’t seen this yet.

The picture was taken while they were watching real time video of the raid on bin Laden’s compound. I expect she was seeing things that were not the usual views available the the Secretary of State.

Reins for Bill to hold onto during anal sex! Certainly one theory, but will it stand up though?

I can’t find a clip of it on the net, but they’ve shown it on CNN a few times this morning. She suggests it may have simply been an effort to stifle a cough or sneeze.

What I’m curious about is why she has long bits of hair jutting out from her head. It really looks ridiculous, almost like that scene from that Ben Stiller movie when his date used sperm on her hair thinking it was hair gel…

@ucme why anal sex?

It was during these statements that her hair was all fucked up.

“I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs,” she said of the reason why her hand was over her mouth “So, it may have no great meaning whatsoever.”

Clinton added the Navy SEAL raid was “38 of the most intense minutes,” but as for the particular details behind what will be one of the most famous photographs to emerge from the Obama administration, Clinton was able to offer few clues.

“I have no idea what any of us were looking at at that particular millisecond,” she said.

I believe this photo was taken in real time, when Bin Laden was shot in the head and these people witnessed it, either live or shortly thereafter.

For Hilary’s hair…...who knows?

Maybe, she had bed head by sleeping on that side of her head.

@FutureMemory Err, coz reins are usually pulled. Thus allowing the wearer to rear their head in a backward motion.

@ucme Why couldn’t it just be doggy style then? Why does it have to be anal?

I’ve really no idea, i’d suggest you ask the Clintons if you want to pursue this matter further.

I couldn’t see what you were talking about in the hand-to-mouth scene but it’s clearer in this photo. I doubt it’s a purposeful style. Perhaps she had more on her mind than looking in the mirror when she got dressed for this?

I think it is just an unflattering angle. It probably looks nice enough from the front.

Jeesh – so what? First she has to explain why her hand was over her mouth, then she has to explain why her hair was sticking out??

She doesn’t even look shocked in the photo where her hand is over her mouth. She just looks like she’s thinking. Seriously, this is just the “criticize everything” strategy of politics/journalism.

I think if she were a man, no one would care about either her hair or why she had her hand over her mouth.

Is this the picture that you mean? My hair looks pretty much like that right now. It doesn’t seem unusual to me. I’d have my hand over my mouth too, if I was watching something grisly. They all look very tired and grim.
