Pictures worth zero words

I can hear the liberals down the hall -- almost giddy that President Bush has been seen in 6 or so pictures with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Each of the pictures seems to have been taken at White House events, which Bush has hosted scores of over the past 5 years. The number of photos Bush has been in since becoming president in 2001 number in the tens of thousands (at least). Its not that big of a surprise that Bush and Abramoff would have taken a few together, afterall Abramoff was a lobbyist and lobbyists get invited to political events. That's why clients hire lobbyists in the first place.

In any event, I'm sure we'll hear that this somehow ties Bush into all of Abramoff's dirty deeds (i.e., similar to this comment which somehow equates a Bush/Abramoff picture to Bill Clinton receiving oral sex in the Oval Office and then lying about it under oath).

Of course we all know that the sitting president takes pictures with and shakes hands with many people with sordid pasts (and presents). Case in point: Bill, Fidel Shake Hands.

And if its dirty campaign contributions you're looking for, don't forget this vidoe tape of Bill, Al and "an Indonesian gardener."

Please put this one to rest early -- just because you have a picture taken with someone who shows up at a party doesn't mean you (i) know him or (ii) had any discussion with him.
