I’m interested in your thoughts about this picture. It was part of the NYT’s campaign slideshow yesterday and the caption read this way:
Mark Salter, Mr. McCain’s closest adviser, checked a BlackBerry as he waited for the senator to finish interviews at a Miami radio station.
I haven’t thought about McCain and his campaign exactly this way before, but what Times photographer Stephen Crowley seems to be going for here is how much Mac and his operation — even beyond the small-mindedness — has been about kitsch.
(This also doubles for my Halloween post.)
