news photos: politics is a force of nature

Obama Taps Salazar to Head Interior

I thought this was an odd picture on the cover of today’s Express with the quick blurb about the Prez-elect picking a nominee for the Dept. of the Interior, but I couldn’t figure out why.

It just came to me. It’s a fuzzy trip from one picture to another, but it’s Obama’s expression in the background and Salazar’s cowboy hat that does it. In fact the more I look at the photo, the less unintentional it seems. And now I can’t stop giggling about them using the word taps instead of picks or nominates. And with the day I’ve had, my brain needs to laugh. I look forward to some after-work merriment this evening.

I am so ready for the holidays a few days away from the office. :mrgreen:
