Our Zombie President!
Not only is our president a zombie, he seems to have the ability to transform young Merchant Marine Academy graduates (in this case, one Gabriel Whitney) into zombies. Can you see the zombie love? Perhaps this explains why he thinks we can "stay the course" in Iraq: if we're zombies, there's no way the insurgents could harm us!
Sometimes I'm annoyed with the New York Times for lazily sinking into pro-Republican narratives (e.g. Getting caught up in pro-war hysteria, treating the Clintons' sex life as newsworthy, but not the sex life of Republicans, etc.). But clearly, whoever decided to run this Charles Dharapak/Associated Press photo in today's Times wasn't out to flatter the president. As a courtesy to the "paper of record" I'll link to the article, but I suspect you might have to be a TimesSelect subscriber to see it.
