The Defiant One


Well, I watched the Obama infomercial last night, and here is the sum total of what I took away from it: I never noticed before how much he talks with his hands.

The Daily Telegraph has a photo tribute to George Bush, 29 pictures (of which long-time readers will have seen about 25 here).
