We're certain there's a reasonable explanation for this photo. For example, perhaps the photographer dangled something shiny just above his camera to get her attention, like a crucifix or a new handgun that he's allowed to carry by decree of the second amendment of the Constitution. Maybe someone off-camera pointed at the ceiling and shouted, "Hey, that water-stain looks like Jesus!" Or maybe one of her handlers got down on his knees, clasped his hands in supplication and said, "Michele, I beg of you, please for this photo just try with everything you have in you to look as sane as you possibly can." Whatever the explanation, we are grateful to Newsweek for this little preview of just how batshit the 2012 election is going to be.
