Did you happen to notice yesterday’s NYT profile on Charlie Black, McCain’s campaign mastermind?
There’s an ironic, but near-imperceptible element buried in the NYT photo of the man who was Lee Atwater’s mentor, as well as political consultant to Blackwater, foreign dictators, and the like. If you expand the image above, you might see it. Otherwise, it’s clearer in the print edition. I’ve blown up the key element right here.
