It’s a cheap shot in a way, because the larger percentage of NATO newswire pics actually show Junior hanging all over his counterparts, and generally chumming it up.
So, why does this picresonate so much? (Here’s a variant of the above, by the way, at dependable renegage.)
It’s because Bush, as telegraphed by the years worth of lip-biting, never was never up to a field like this. What is more illuminating to me about the NATO Summit pics, however, are the many more shots of Dubya letting down his guard — yes, Rove’s ill-fitting dream for you, Pork Rind, is almost over! — exposing the frat-boy he’s been all along.
