    They both appear to be carefully bumping their manly chests looking nothing like pro football players. Where’s the running toward each other, the jumping & then the bump midair? Add this to a growing list of unfortunate decisions. At least this one won’t get anyone killed.

    . . . restoring honor and dignity to the White House . . .

    I’m now feel glad to be wearing a purple gown as opposed to those tighty-whities and a yellow sash. The Air Force needs to hire a new fashion designer.

    This is the problem with photography, BTW, as anyone who has ever been caught sneezing on film knows. By freezing the president in mid-action, forever, he is made to appear much more ridiculous than he probably appeared live, in person. I mean, I’m sure he seemed a little goofy, but not mating-dance-of-the-storks whacko.

    Koolaid is right about the uniform. When I imagine South American traffic cops from the 1950’s (which, I want to state emphatically, I hardly ever do), this is what I see.

    I got much better news: a kid from West Lafayette, Indiana won the National Spelling Bee just a few blocks from the White House last night! If LB can just find a computer in Montreal, I sent a post to the blog about it last night. Sartorial relevance: they didn’t make the spellers wear the standard-issue white polo shirts in the final round; instead, they got to wear their own clothes. Made them look a lot more like normal, individual kids.

    ITA about the South American traffic cop image, Jeff. That will keep me laughing for a week . . .

  6. Did I even spell that right? 🙂

    There’s actually a VW Bug crushed between them.
