White Men Don't Smile !

A picture is worth 1000 words...all of them biased, of course, when produced by the mainstream media.

Here's a snapshot from a few years back of George W. Bush and his pick for the Supreme Court, Samuel Alito:

And here's the AP picture currently running of Barack Obama and his Supreme Court pick, Sonia Sotomayor:

What's the matter, white men don't smile? Or is the photographer here displaying his biases, by showing Baracky and his Sonia with big, happy smiles, full of love and empathy? Note Barack looking down proudly - a Big Daddy for us all, with Sonia as a mother figure that will guide us with wisdom and caring.

While Bush and Alito are shown as a couple of crusty old suits - unfeeling, uncaring, looking more like CEO's counting out a balance sheet than a President and a Justice.

Personally, I like the Bush/Alito pic better anyway. I don't need surregate parents, I need a chief executive and a legal scholar.

Doesn't look like we have either, though...
