The photo challenge this week is to define what “distorted” might look like.
The first thing that came to my mind? Politicians and supposed “entertainers” like the horrible Rush Limbaugh. A picture of Rush Limbaugh does embody the word distorted, distort, distortion, like non other I can think of. But, I have never photographed him, nor would I ever want to.
Limbaugh’s recent on-air comments about a Georgetown law student’s appeal to Congress on the contraception issue, were so twisted, so hateful, and so misogynistic that it baffles the mind. We are in the 21st century, correct?
Limbaugh called Georgetown Law School student Sandra Fluke “a prostitute and a slut” for arguing that birth control should be covered by insurance at religious workplaces or institutions. But, more troubling than his sick, sick words? Some GOP politicians see nothing wrong with what Limbaugh said. I kid you not.
That’s not only distorted, it’s incredibly troubling…..
Anyway, about my entry, I captured this beautiful fellow (the zoo docent said though he’s mighty pretty, he’s a real pest!) at Zoo Miami while he was shaking his lovely plume. I am sorry I cannot recall the name of this bird…. I also don’t recall if he is a pigeon or a dove… I will attempt to find the answer though.
