The Eyes Have It

The Eyes of Tammy Faye: the complexities of surface; but who's manipulating who? Some sort of nexus of kitsch, over-emotionalism, sentimentality, dressed-up caked-over manipulation, and the rapidly-changing focus of strong feelings. It's hard not to like (or at least sympathise with) someone who comes across as a bit of an unironic elderly Ru Paul enthusiastically embracing the sort of people almost everything about her background and surroundings would shun as pariahs or worse, but there's that whiff of manipulation again.... Blind faith in ... self, belief.
