It’s snarky, I know, but I got a good laugh when I first saw this shot of Bush (with Olmert and Peres) on the ground in Israel. (It’s a WH shot, after all.)
Given the trip is a sad little legacy gesture wrapped around some big time, born-again religious tourism (on the citizen’s dime), I couldn’t help seeing the carpet — especially in contrast to this — as one giant cross.
