Mccain Sunglasses

As Tommy Lee Jones McCain jets around the country, keep your eye on his brilliant use of a strategic fashion accessory.  Not only do the cool shades blunt the  age issue, they help reinforce (and symbolize) the superficial coverage of McCain by the media.  This shot, taken this week in Meridian, Mississippi (as part of John’s “My Delinquent Biography Tour”), comes via the mccainblogette.

For a more MSM example, however, check out this shot of Cindy at the Naval Academy on the NYT “Wednesday on the Trail” slide show.
