    The flag in the framed photo reminds me of the illegitimate, vertically-striped flag of the “Allied States of America” in TV show, Jericho. Bush would have fit in quite well in the Jennings and Rall corporation.

    Wow, the distorted and unsigned photo of the incorrect flag, the worn shoes, the paper bag! FGS, the ill-hanging jacket…….all indicate some poor functionary who is not high enough up the ladder to obtain a job on K street, nor with any republican corporate biggie. Poor baby.

    Wow! This distorted image of the American Flag explains a lot about the previous administration’s policies.
