Actress’ ‘Tattoo’ Of Hancock Signed Constitution

From an amused Associated Press:

Rolling Stone flubs ‘Veep’ tattoo

April 9, 2014

LOS ANGELES — Julia Louis-Dreyfus better hope her latest tattoo is a temporary one.

The cover image of next month’s Rolling Stone magazine featuring the “Veep” star depicts a nude Louis-Dreyfus with a tattoo of the U.S. Constitution signed by John Hancock across her back. The problem is Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

Louis-Dreyfus jokingly blamed the blunder on Mike McClintock, the fictional “Veep” character played by Matt Walsh who serves as communications director to Louis-Dreyfus’ Vice President Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy series.

“Yet another Mike [expletive]-up,” the 53-year-old actress posted Wednesday on Twitter. “Dummy.”

Funny how Ms. Louis-Dreyfus didn’t know the difference. She claims to be an expert on most other political matters.

The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia mocked the flub by tweeting a photo of the cover alongside such Founding Fathers as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in Signers’ Hall with the words, “Thanks for the shoutout but no Hancock here.” …

Inside the magazine, another image shot by photographer Mark Seliger shows a man in a colonial wig tattooing Hancock’s signature above the “Seinfeld” actress’ bare bottom.

But she didn’t notice.

“I’m a perfectionist in my work,” Louis-Dreyfus notes in the magazine’s cover story…

Sure she is.

    just when you think you seen all that the Left could ridicule and blaspheme, …

    and i admit this is not one of the Capt’s Field of expertise,

    could this be the face (or backside) of the Modern

    Whore of Babylon ?

     

    “When John introduces the Whore in Revelation 17, he tells us: “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, ‘Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.’ And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of b.asphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.’ And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly” (Rev. 17:1–6).

    “This passage tells us several things about the Whore: (1) She is an international power, since she “sits on many waters,” representing different peoples (17:15), and she has committed fornication with “the kings of the earth,” and she has inflamed “the dwellers on earth” with her fornication. (2) She is connected with the seven-headed Beast from Revelation 13:1–10. That Beast was a major pagan empire, since its symbolism combined animal elements from four other major pagan empires (compare Rev. 13:1–2 with Dan. 7:1–8). (3) The Woman is connected with royalty, since she is dressed in the royal color purple. (4) The Woman is rich, for she is “bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup.” (5) She has committed some kind of fornication, which in Scripture is often a symbol of false religion—lack of fidelity to the God who created heaven and earth. (6) She is symbolically known as Babylon. (7) She is a central cause of “abominations” in the land, abominations being a reference to practices, especially religious practices, that are offensive to God. And (8) she persecutes Christians “the saints and . . . martyrs of Jesus.”

    just saying

    On a more mortal, somber note….Julia is not that funny or accomplished. Seinfeld picked her for a part in his sitcom but post Seinfeld, her own (two) shows bombed.

    Her talent is as stale as crackers left out for days. She is neither clever nor witty.

    Rolling Stone had to have been paid huge sums of money to name her “First Lady Of Comedy” because I can think of several women who are incredibly funnier than she could ever hope of being. Before Ellen Degenerous made such a fuss about being homosexual, I liked her and thought she was hilarious. I’ll still watch her show from time-to-time if I can stomach any of the pro-active left-wing acne that shows up.

    But there are more and funnier women than Julia. I thought she was good looking while on Seinfeld but she is currently trying to re-kindle a career that never really burned very brightly to begin with. I’ve often thought she should try more serious roles in acting as I think she might be able to pull it off. Otherwise, she’s just another hollyweird has-been, wishing for a return to better days.

      She is also richer than Croesus. Her father is the billionaire Gérard Louis-Dreyfus, who chaired Louis Dreyfus Energy Services. And she is the great-great-granddaughter of Léopold Louis-Dreyfus, who in 1851 founded the Louis Dreyfus Group, a French commodities and shipping conglomerate, which members of the family control to this day.

      Which probably explains 1) her getting work, and 2) her left-wing politics.

    she is just one of the stable of closed shop big contract, viewer recognizable actors that Hollywood and television are playing safe with.

    and all use the “paint by the numbers, fill in the blank” scripts.

    the Liberal entertainment industry,trying to cheat writers , is a major reason for the crap now on TV.

    “The 1988 Writers Guild of America strike resulted in a 22-week work interruption that not only delayed the TV season but crippled the industry. In addition to losing about 9% of its audience when new fare finally returned, industry-wide losses were estimated at $500 million.”

    issue: how writers should be compensated when their work appears on new media platforms like the Web.

    and (later ,2007)that they be better compensated for content on DVD,

    “This is what our strike is about. It’s about what kind of entertainment you are going to see and how you are going to see it for the rest of your life, and about how those who create your entertainment are to be recompensed for their creativity. ”

     

    and without experienced script writers many (shows) suffered in quality.

    Fox relied on new shows like “Cops” and “America’s Most Wanted,” shows that were basically reality programs before the term “reality programming” existed.

    and is probably the reason the networks went to the moronic ” Unscripted drama .”
