The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Smiling, Beautiful Faces

For a photo op, I think this picture stinks on way too many levels.

First of all, nobody's smiling. Which is usually pretty important if you're trying to convey warm subjects. Also, everyone in view looks kind of confused, almost even as if they're totally leaderless. (Which, when you think about it, is a perfect allegory for this rudderless administration, isn't it?)

To make matters worse, the President and his handlers seem to have gone out of their way to put together the absolute most PBS-ish inclusive Girl Scout troop in the entire country. Except, looking at the full sized picture, they're not all from the same troop at all, which means that someone really went out of their way to hand-pick what is nothing more than a colorful backdrop for Captain Publicity Stunt.

Round the whole scene up with the most awkward looking First Lady I've ever seen, and you've got yourself a real stinker of a picture.

Which, like I said previously, seems to fit this Administration to a "T."

More importantly, what do you think?

President Barack Obama talks with MacKenzie Clare, 14, and the other Girls Scouts after signing the Girl Scouts USA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act in the Oval Office, Oct. 29, 2009. First Lady Michelle Obama looks on at right. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

Update: Interesting thoughts from Because No One Asked. (That's what you get for not asking!)

Michelle is preggers. I bet we get confirmation before Thanksgiving.

I was just noticing that.  SHe is looking rather plump there.  Not the fit and shapely shape that every woman's magazine in the world fawned over.

I wonder if there is going to be a Boy Scout of America Commemorative Coin Act coming out before he makes his decision on whether our guys actually need guns n bullets and ... .. things.
