Like A Baby Koala

I saw this line at The Church of Shiny Objects blog, and it's funny.

Post: "If Obama’s people are smart—really smart—they will reproduce this shot of McCain embracing Bush like a baby koala at a recent campaign rally on every conceivable medium: billboards, mouse pads, t-shirts, TV ads, yard signs, coffee mugs, tortillas, baby bibs…if it’s a transferrable surface, use it."

McCain embracing Bush like a baby koala! It is weird looking.

That's the thing about still photos, though; it freezes odd moments that may have looked fleeting and semi-normal in real life. But this one. I don't know.

There's something about McCain's little arms trying to get around the appearance of Bush girth, and he can't make it. But rather than be frustrated, he gets this look of beatification on his face, "I weally weally wuv you!"

And there's poor Bush, not knowing whether to hug back, push away, or what.

I agree with CHV on how damaging this picture could be to McCain. Print it, run it, publish post, send it on. McCain is running for Bush's third term.
