I think the Washington Post is secretly conspiring against Barack Obama.

If this is the best picture the Post could run of Mayor Fenty endorsing Barack Obama, how bad must the rest of them be?



Yikes.



Ignore for a moment how Mayor Fenty is clearly pulling back from Senator Obama with a look of sheer terror on his face. Focus instead on how wrinkly Mayor Fenty's head looks. I didn't think that was humanly possible. In fact, he somehow manages to look exactly like a Shar Pei.


Update: Man, the WaPo online just isn't having a very good 24-hours. Check out this screencap, courtesy of DCist. It seems someone forgot to consult the Urban Dictionary.

The Post wasn't very flattering of Marion Berry either. Course, one could argue he didn't deserve it.

Barry's kind of a punchline around here anyway. But I think my real point was that these are extraordinarily unflattering pictures of two political figures.

Note to Evil Spock: For 2012 POTUS run, do not shave head.

And do not allow others to take pictures of you recoiling in horror from the handshake of a purported political ally.

Excellent powers of observation on both counts. Awkward facial expression and wrinkly head.

I would think that the photographer would have to work twice as hard just to get such bad pictures.
