Other than hair color the woman in this ad for American Wedding looks nothing at all like Alyson Hannigan. I wonder why?

I'm convinced that the redacted section of the 9/11 report about the Saudis was redacted so that President Bush could sandbag the press into demanding its release.
Why? Because I suspect the redacted portions make EX-President Clinton appear to be the ineffectual dipwad that he was, showing how he blew it way back when in not taking action when he had the opportunity.
I might be using the wrong grifting term here, maybe there's another term to properly describe using your marks own interest and vanity against them, but who cares. Under any name this is a beautiful piece of social engineering. By appearing to hide this information, then caving into demands for its release, President Bush avoids the negative spin that would have resulted had he simply released the information in the first place.
UPDATE: An even better reason for the sandbagging is suggested here. Granted, neither of us know what has been redacted, but I think we might be on to something about President Bush's actions.

Why (and how) else can you explain trying to convince someone to wear a shoe as a hat?
What next, a lampshade as a hat? How about a pair of panties, or a bra?

"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday that 42,815 people died in auto accidents in 2002."
"Alcohol-related fatalities accounted for 41 percent of the total number of deaths, or 17,419"
So, we are in a national panic about terrorists, and how many people have they killed in the past year? But drunk drivers continue to mow people down and we don't seem to care. Is it really an accident when someone knowingly in an impaired state gets in a car?
"Fifty-nine percent of those killed in accidents also weren't wearing seat belts."
Maybe this is just modern day survival of the fittest. The most dangerous thing most people will ever do, and they don't even put on a seat belt.

I'm that way with clumsy photoshop results both situational or technical. I've blogged before about humorous results when companies decide that their images might be a bit too suggestive and they proceed to airbrush them to be less titillating. I also enjoy photo-shop disasters like this one, from an ad that ran on my.yahoo.com for a site called eDiets:
Click on image for blow up of face
How very strange that a site (which I can only assume is) about losing weight had to take a picture of a slender woman's body and paste some other woman's smiling face on it in order to construct a suitable woman for their tastes.
Don't women face enough challenge in forming a healthy body image? Where the fuck does eDiet get off creating some FrankenHottie's monster to push their crappy service? Couldn't it at least buck up and pay for pictures of a real woman? Isn't the ever-higher bar unpassable enough yet? Do it's diets work if you aren't willing to cut you face off and paste in onto a new body?
Anyway, that's my rant for today.
