The random goofy stuff. In this case, a dude in New Hampshire decides to take advantage of the political season: just for the heck of it, he decides to find out whether he can get a picture of his baby daughter with *every single one* of the presidential candidates. He got everybody except Fred Thompson, who hasn't spent much time in New Hampshire. And Mike Gravel, because the dad in question considers him "creepy." But everybody else is there.

The resulting pictures are adorably entertaining Americana: Giuliani, alarmed when the baby starts to cry; Hillary Clinton, looking a little uncomfortable but still game; McCain, the old pro, in a great contrast with Giuliani, laughing when the baby is upset to be handed to a strange old man. The best of the lot is a picture of Obama cradling the baby: it's a great picture, and a nice side of Obama.

(And yes, he got Huckabee and Chuck Norris.)

That was pretty cool. My favorite picture of this genre features Shrub Bush:

I have to say: my favorite pictures of President Bush campaigning were during the 2004 campaign, when he and Senator Kerry were doing their respective stumpings in Iowa. It being Iowa, fairs and crops were in, and so the newsfeeds for that day ran *tons* of pictures of the two candidates brandishing corn.

There is just something about grown men waving ears of corn around in a transparent ploy for votes that makes me happy to be an American.

Now that's what I call politics

Thanks for the link. Kinda gives you a sense of the underlying person, not just the face they put on for the public. Like Mitt Romney unable to tell she's a girl from her Mary Janes. I guess it's not surprising. This is the man, after all, who went on vacation with his dog (http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1638065,00.html) in a carry cage strapped to the top of his car. Sheesh.

JP! Long time no see! Great to hear from you.

(Alas, you no longer have that awesome picture of you on your webpage! I call foul.)

YOU NEED A BOOK

A POEM EVERY DAY

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
