I caught sight of the local newspaper's front page today...
Now, my frist instinct was rage. I could not
believe that the newspaper would place a picture of him rubbing his eye below a headline. Where they really trying to convince people that this man cares
Well, I snatched the paper and scurried up here to scan it. I had Wacky upload the picture... and then I noticed. I noticed that the BBC has a similar picture
with a similar headline
Now I'm a bit perturbed. The BBC wouldn't play along with such a game, right?
So now I'm left with two concepts:
- Media groups are bending truths in an attempt to make Bush and his cabinet appear to have some level of compassion. This, of course, would be nothing but smoke and mirrors. Unfortunately, the BBC would seem to be in on the game.
- Rumsfeld put on an act to make it appear as if he has some level of compassion. Again, smoke and mirrors. However, depsite a brief search... I found no textual evidence that Rumself actually cried during his apology.
So what's the deal? Who's eating all the chocolate? Something
is far from right in this picture... And I do not like it.
