I mean.. not to pick on the guy, but he sure does have some awesome facial expressions... If you watch the BBC video, you'll notice he really does look like a robot...

A 4 picture spread of this was on the top-fold cover of the NYTs.

I know they want to make him look dumb, but I find that kinda ridiculous.

I mean, sure, laugh online. It really is quite funny. But the front cover?!

Maybe there should have been a picture of Mongols, or supressed religious minorities, or political prisoners, or the militarization in the South China Sea, or Taiwan's reaction to Bush's visit...

I was a little surprised to see it on the printed cover.

Well.. I mean it is a good photograph. It was probably picked for its color and use of thirds over the subject matter.

It wasn't just this phote. It was a series of 4, telling a story. They REALLY wanted to make sure people understood that Bush made a mistake.

Yah see, being unable to see through metal to detect when a door is locked is a sure sign he lied about WMD! No Blood for Oil!

Oh, for the record, I did clip and keep the photo with caption.
