"I Feel Strongly About This Particular Point Because Of A Picture I Saw In A Magazine"
This is the image that crystallized, in Colin Powell’s mind, how the GOP has completely gone off the tracks in polarizing this country.
Think what you will of Powell himself, his reference to this photograph as a statement of inclusion and as a rebuttal to the hate being spread by his friend John McCain and Sarah Palin serves as just one more endorsement for America’s return to sanity (as well as the power of visual politics).
PDN has backstory.
