Susan at Local Tint had a post yesterday about Condi Rice and Jack Straw's recent photo ops, including the most appalling:
...yesterday's Birmingham News ran a photo of Rice, Straw and four school-aged black girls, holding hands crossing the street. The girls wore dresses, coats, and white socks with mary janes--their idyllic and anachronistic dress clearly meant to evoke the 1963 bombing victims. Even considering she's a Bush Administration member, I was disappointed: a manipulative, tasteless photo op (that the community was apparently game for).
That really is ghoulish.
