Ann Althouse asks one of the really pressing questions of our day: “Is there some reason why Hillary keeps doing this gaping-maw face?” There are lots of funny and maybe even valid comments on her posting. I’ve asked the same question myself, and I’ve also wondered what it means that so many women these days are making mouth-wide-open expressions.
Hey, it seems like a good time to share some recent-ish finds from my own stash of pix of Hillary-with-her-mouth-wide-open.
What on earth does this mannerism (or tic or reflex) of Hillary’s mean about her? What in the world does she think she’s doing? And why oh why are so many women so prone these days to making mouth-wide-open expressions?
Thanks to Eddie Pensier for pointing Althouse’s posting out to me.
It wouldn’t surprise me if she does it on purpose on the advice of her media advisers.
A lot of people perceive Clinton as a bit dour, lackluster, and basically boring. To counter this she’s probably instructed to smile and act enthused as part of a projection that she’s in control and comfortable with what she is doing.
I think the open mouth thing is just a consequence of her efforts to appear energetic. It’s not genuine enthusiasm though and I think people detect that somethings not quite right and she ends up coming accross as a bit weird.
It’s her worst tic, by far. I’m a supporter of hers and it still bugs the shit out of me. It’s also incredibly susceptive to harmful (to her) memes.
