Bush_Flight_Suit.jpgLet’s get something straight. Yes, John Kerry in his space suit looks like a sperm primed for blast off in “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.” But the picture of our next president is cheerful, funny, goofy, and another view of a multi-faceted man.
President Bush on the deck of the Intrepid in his freaking cod-pieced flight suit, standing in front of a “Mission Accomplished” sign was a deadly serious, mind-bogglingly misguided publicity stunt by the White House PR machine.
Even the New York Times felt the need to compare the Kerry photo to one of Michael Dukakis, “whose presidential aspirations ended not long after he was photographed in a tank wearing a helmet that made him look like Rocky – as in Rocky and Bullwinkle.”
I certainly hope the traditional media gets over this ridiculous conversation about Kerry looking goofy and gets back to what is real — it’s time for a regime change, not a costume change. The media need to talk about substance, not form.
