Eva Longoria, 38, also shines in the new campaign, along with Victoria´s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes, 28, and Julianne Moore, 52.

Actually, I think Fonda is the perfect model for the shade "Forever Red".

I stopped by the VFW Post last week, and was pleased to note that Hanoi Jane´s image is still displayed on the urinal screens there.

To real Americans, that will be her legacy.

Guess I´ve bought my last item of L´Oreal. Yesterday I saw an ad with Beyonce for L´ Oreal, and was thinking about boycotting them anyway. Decision made!

Beauty is only skin deep. Underneath she is as ugly a leftist as there is. She committed treason during the Vietnam war and that stain can never be washed away not even by the msm as hard as they may try. She is a leader in the hate America first leftist crowd. This country needs more Sarah Palins and fewer Jane Fondas if we are to survive.

Very poor decision by L´Oreal to use this America hating leftist to sell their products. Their cosmetics are marketed mainly in franchised drug stores and their customer base are well aware of who and what Jane Fonda is.

It´s not natural. She has had facial and body work done. Anyone can look younger with the right plastic surgeon and lots of money. I can´t read the article because she is a traitor. She personally caused the torture and murder of some POW´s. There can´t be an excuse for that.

Sorry for the double post, forgot to add that Fonda´s obvious plastic surgery hasn´t made her look younger, it´s made her look less human. Her face doesn´t look as atrocious as Lurch Heinz Kerry, but that´s not saying much. Doesn´t Fonda have millions? Because her wigs look like she bought them from an old Woolworth mannequin supplier.

Reminds me of the song Unfortunate Man who married the wealthy old maid -
At night in their chamber the lady arose,??
And began to prepare to retire and repose,??
Her husband stood near her admiring her charms,? ?
That gave him such pleasure to hold in his arms.???

She went to the washstand to bathe her fair face,??
And thus she destroyed all her beauty and grace,
??The rose on her cheek quickly grew very faint,??
And he saw on the towel, ´twas nothing but paint.

????She went to the mirror to take down her hair,??
And when she had done so her scalp was all bare,??
Said she: "Don´t be frightened to see my bald head,??
"I´ll put on my cap when I get into bed.

"???She hung her false hair on the wall on a peg,??
Then she proceeded to take off her leg,
??Her trembling husband got quite a surprise,
??When she asked him to come and take out her glass eye.

He´s a very unfortunate, very unfortunate, ??very unfortunate man.??
Yes, he´s a very unfortunate, very unfortunate,?? very unfortunate man.

I gave up L´Oreal a long time ago. Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore, et al. ad nauseum, and now Hanoi Jane.

Hey - it´s a French thing, I guess. Verrrrry continental, donchaknow.

Money, Botox and surgical enhancement work wonders for sure, and because she has so few acting jobs (even though the Left praises what she does do---Nancy Reagan in personation et al---to the skies) because so many of us won´t pay for a film she is in, what else is there to do besides pretty herself up. L´Oreal is making a real blunder thinking they will garner product loyalty via this move......for that matter, Eva Longoria, a principal in La Raza, is not so great either. These people may LOOK good but they bring a ton of baggage.

Duuuh! I finally realized why Fonda sold her soul to the commies so many years ago: in return she received the same treatments that keeps Lenin so presentable. In her case, they need a little more work on the odor control, though.

Bad news is we can expect her to remain on the scene long after she dies. Or did she die years ago?

I happened to go by the old VFW building in my hometown this Labor Day weekend. It´s the same building that my dad and his Vietnam buddies still go to. In it they still have urinal "big white mints" and toilet paper with Hanoi Jane´s ugly picture on them. It is fitting since this harridan is still in my book an American hating leftist POS. No amount of plastic surgery and crappy makeup ie L´Oreal will ever change that.

JERUSALEM — Israel’s top negotiator said Thursday that Israel will not release a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners, a move that brings the sputtering U.S.-backed peace talks ever closer to collapse. In an all-night meeting brokered by U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, Israel’s chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told her Palestinian counterparts that since the Palestinians had taken unilateral steps toward greater recognition by the United Nations, the Israeli government would cancel the final release of 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, according to Israeli officials close to the talks. At the meeting, Israel also called upon the Palestinians to withdraw the letters they

After an Iraq War veteran took the lives of three other people at Fort Hood on Wednesday, President Barack Obama, Pentagon officials and others in Washington agreed more must be done to spot “insider threats” before they strike. But what almost no one is saying: change gun laws. The Fort Hood attack is the latest in a string of mass shootings, from the Navy Yard attack in September to a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin the year before, where the response from Washington has shifted from guns – to the shooters who wield them.

The docu-series follows the former Alaska governor/vice presidential candidate around the country as she and a crew explore “people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoor lifestyle.” This is just the latest in a long line of TV shows for the Palins — perhaps not unexpectedly, several have had their share of controversy attached.

Suddenly the subject of income inequality has turned into a global love train. Politicians and public-policy shops all over the world are hopping onboard. Naturally the engineer is Barack Obama, who gives speeches on income inequality and won a presidential election by rolling over 1% of the population. Democrats in this year´s midterm elections are running on income inequality, and this is rational. Their alternatives don´t look attractive, despite ObamaCare´s seven million recruits. Less obvious is the linkage being made now between global warming and—what else?—income inequality. Or that the International Monetary Fund is moving income inequality to the top of

Military Gun-Free Zones Clarified,

With the April 2 shooting at Ft. Hood--the second such shooting at that base in five years--it is important to remember that military gun-free zones were implemented under President Bill Clinton. As Breitbart News reported on September 17--the day after Aaron Alexis opened fire on unarmed personnel in the gun-free DC Navy Yard--military bases became gun free zones just months into Clinton´s presidency. To be fair, the original directive (5210.56) relating to military gun-free zones was issued during the last months of President George H.W. Bush´s presidency. Then, an implementing regulation (AR 190-14)--which clarified and revised 5210.56--was issued just months

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
