Incredibly Wild Card for Thursday, June 5, 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

Hoo boy! In our picture of the day, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., pats Carson Duncan, 6, on the head after upon arrival in St. Petersburg, Fla. (AP Photo/LM Otero)
(June 04, 2008)

Do you think the news media could possibly taken an uglier picture of John McCain?

I cannot even remotely suggest that I support John McCain, unless he decides to cancel his candidacy for President of the United States and opts to clean the zoo cages at the Washington, DC zoo.

However, I am always a bit perplexed, even miffed, at the manner in which pictures are chosen by various news sources for the front page each day. Some of them, such as this situation where McCain more closely resembles Jabba the Hut than a Presidential candidate, smack of unfairness to me.

Of course, as always, your opinion may differ.
