POLITICS: The Roving Eye

At least one Reuters cameraman might consider moving his focus a little higher:

I dunno, Crank. Your gal's got a nice pair of legs. It's not like anyone wants to listen to any of the nonsense she actually says.

If Gonzo had gams like that, maybe I'd give him a listen too.

(Rove, on the other hand, we want to hear.)

Correction Mike. I would be happier if we NEVER heard from Rove again.

I have a secret crush on Condi. I ain't afraid to admit it, especially after seeing those legs. One has to question the motives of the al Reuters photographer, but I like the legs.

YES, I date. Plenty. So haters. . .save it.

Really, Daryl? You don't want to hear Karl's version of things under "the klieg lights," as his boss call them, on Capitol Hill next week?

I do. Very much. Though I agree with you that I hope we never hear another word from him forever after.

Yes, taking the picture was tasteless. Even more tasteless was the editorial decision to publish it. No matter what the picture shows, though, Condi was one of very few people on the Hill that day with any balls.

The really damning thing about that picture is that the photographer didn't even manage to get her entire head in the shot.

In the photographer's defense, the photographers are positioned between the witness and the committee members and have to kneel down. Those shots are inevitable.

It's a well framed shot, which I think shoots down any 'accidental' argument. Publishing it fits the overall frame that we're presented with the sex appeal (?) of the messenger rather than the evil message itself.

Rokusan,

Best post in a long time. Made me laugh before I even had coffee.
