Dukakis Redux?

Photo Ops gone bad





Nice little battle over who asked for the NASA pictures and who "released" them.


Substantively, it doesn't mean a thing. But we live in an image conscious society with a short attention span for words....

What do you mean 'gone bad'? I think he looks dead sexy!

Or, on a more serious note:


So, if his mission is accomplished, does that mean he goes away now?

I didn't bother looking up the "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" picture to post because I knew someone else would.

Thanks, Marty!

And another difference...

Kerry is running against dubya...not anywhere near in popularity to what Reagan was.

Anyone else think Kerry looks like an oompah loompah in the TV part of the Willy Wonka film?

I hate politics like this. The tank photo killed his chances at being president. I wish I were working one of these campaigns.

The aid who allowed this photo-op should be fired.

I supported Dukakis, and I remember wishing to hell he hadn't done this. It was a huge mistake.

For me, someone not taking themselves so seriously all the time is a quality that I like (Talking about Kerry, not Dukakis. I don't know much about Dukakis, I was only two during that election). Unfortunately I am not the average voter

Actually I think Willie Horton did Dukakis a lot more damage than the funny helmet.

I pine for the good old days when winners and losers were picked by subtler signs, like a five-o'clock-shadow, bobbing adam's apple and sweaty chin. And yes, I am indulging in levity.
