Mad Men


I was a bit taken aback by the way the TIME White House Photo Blog titled this recent image….

1. Hard to tell how pissed off they are when they’re so distant (and almost swallowed up in that space).

2. …Or, is TIME suggesting the policy is crazy, or even that “44” and Geithner are slightly off?

3. Certainly, captions like this (and the doubt it conveys) wouldn’t have anything to do with this.

4. You mean, like these two mad men?
