Hillary Clinton in Wax
Status: Fake Hillary
A lot of people don't like Hillary, but I do. But then, I'm nostalgic for the 90s. Anyway, here's something else to add to the list of strange hyperreal objects. it's Hillary Clinton in wax, recently unveiled at Madame Tussauds:

The Clinton statue, crafted at the original Tussauds museum in London, takes its place in a wing dedicated to presidents and other public figures known as "the gallery." There, the likeness of the Democratic senator joins statues of Presidents Bush, Reagan, Kennedy, and her husband, Bill Clinton.

I'll leave it to you to determine which is the real Hillary in the two photos below.

Yep! That was quite easy...anyone could easily determine the real one.

I figured the one on the left was the 'real' Hillary, as it appears more cold, plastic, heartless, and artificial than the one on the right...

The was model (I'm assuming it's the one on the left) looks more like Jane Pauley than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Reynard.... I think you mean Hillary "ROTTEN" Clinton. Get it right dude!

But you're right about one thing. It does look more like Jane Pauley.

I thought Tussaud's became famous in the 1970's from taking street surveys about the five scariest people in the world, and then doing wax likenesses of them.

I guess things haven't changed.

The REAL Hillary is made of wax, so now they just made a clone of her. No big deal.

Funny, unless everyone's making the same joke then everyone made precisely the revers judgement I did. I would say the one on the right is the model.

Looks like I was wrong, however.

Still, in my defence it's a rotten photo of the dummy:)

It would make a great halloween mask, sure to scare the hell out of everyone.
