Could this be it??

The picture, I mean. In the past certain pictures and video clips that have been overplayed and overinterpreted by the media have on occasion almost singlehandedly sunk campaigns.

Remember this one?

That had to hurt.

And who will ever forget the Dean Scream, although he wasn't doing too well at that point anyway.

And John Kerry's campaign was not helped by this picture:

Although I would have been perfectly fine with a windsurfing president because I know the idea that someone who changes with the wind on a windsurf board would change with the wind on policy is just plain dumb.

But if the American people had just listened to their inner voices when they saw this picture, we might have been saved measureless national pain and embarrassment.

And so I am wondering now, in this campaign, could THIS be that picture?

My plea to the media: Take this one and RUN WITH IT.

There couldn't be any other photo today that could make me simultaneously gag in disgust and jump for joy like this one does. Thanks for sharing that.

I hope it is The Picture.

Kerry said...

Oh - that is too funny!

It looks more like they're getting a little gropey-gropey.

Caption suggestion: McCain goes for Third Base?

I guess they don't support gay marriage, but...

Okay, that's enough.

Came here by way of Jordan. I had seen the photo already, but your lead up was hilarious! Loved it.

Ew, that's a damn creepy manhug. The caress of the belly is never good, especially in the Bush/McCain scenario.
