ICYMI: Our Fearless Leader Is Special

And by “special” we do NOT mean he rode the short bus to school. We do NOT mean that at all.

Unlike normal humans, I read the cutlines on photos in the newspaper. (Also unlike normal humans, I call them “cutlines” instead of “captions,” and “newspapers” instead of “web things.” But I digress.) I happened across this picture in the AJC (which is either a web thing with a newspaper or a newspaper with a web thing) of US Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)  discussing important issues related to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, the federal budget deficit, gas mileage and foreign policy, but more importantly: BEING PHOTOGRAPHED BY CHARLIE HARPER!

Special, indeed. Some might even say indefatigable. Or omnipotent. Or just dreamy. But they would all have to admit that it’s pretty cool to get a photo credit in a major US newspaper. And I hope that Senator Chambliss asked Charlie for an autograph.

And if you are not distracted by all the flashbulbs, you should read Galloway’s interview with the Senator. It’s good.
