The 16 deadly faces of Soledad O’Brien

Earlier, I posted a video of CNN host Soledad O’Brien going after GOP Rep. Joe Heck for making a contradictory argument for why he and his fellow Republicans are objecting to the expected nomination of Susan Rice to be our next Secretary of State, supposedly because of something with the Benghazi, Libya attack that took the lives of four Americans, including our ambassador.

But this wasn’t Soledad O’Brien’s first brush with political hackery.  Back in August, she stood up to GOP bully and Romney surrogate, John Sununu, who was peddling the old lie about President Obama cutting Medicare (he didn’t).  O’Brien ripped him to shreds.

She’s got a thing for the truth, our Soledad.  And that’s why I’ve got a gay-man crush on the CNN morning host: What can I say, we like our women with beauty, brains and a bite.

(Okay, we like our men that way too.)

So with no further ado, here are the 16 deadly faces of Soledad O’Brien. I’m sure there are more, but this is a good beginning primer for anyone planning to go on her show and spout a bunch of bull.

Honey and Sunshine Soledad

Sultry Sol: It always begins and ends with a smile.

Suspicious Soledad

The deadly beauty queen. You’ve just said something stupid, and Soledad noticed.

Soledad Who’s Got Your Number

“My name is Soledad O’Brien. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” At this point, Sol’s got your number. She’s come to the conclusion that your stupidity isn’t a glitch, it’s a feature.

Consternation Sol. The trap is set. It’s now only a question of when, not if.

BAM! She Pounces

Are you freaking kidding me?

The Grinch

Wuh? You did not just say that to me.

I am so not buying your BS.

You said what?!

Then the Hands Come Out: Otherwise Known as “Sol-splaining.”

Seriously PO’d Sol. When the hands come out, she’s ticked.

Chopping Sol.

Incredulous Sol.

Nit-picky Sol. “Now I’m going to explain this to you like you’re an idiot, because you are.”

Heartfelt Sol.

Sol with hand and pen = Duck!

Bambi Sol. Once she’s done with you, and all that remains of you is a pile of broken bones, out comes Bambi Sol to thank you for coming on the show.
