BAGnews is at it again:
The one above would be a completely different photo if Obama's eyes were closed. In almost a psychological study, the fact they aren't appears to illustrate Obama's capacity to bodily absorb the pressure and still locate and collect himself.
Somehow, I don't think Obama's the one who needs to collect himself.
If BAGnews had a photo of Obama putting his pants on one leg at a time, we'd be hearing about Obama's terrific sense of balance and inner serenity. Or, possibly, his thoughtfulness and methodical nature, as shown by the fact that he doesn't try to put on his pants by jumping into them with both feet. Jeebus, the campaign is over. Unless it's a permanent one? It would be really nice to have a return to analysis, instead of hagiography.
I've seen the halo around Obama's head, and I've seen the halo round Bush's head. It's the Village doing its thing. It's spectacle, nothing less -- and nothing more.
