Sheehan’s Book Signing – A Lonely Affair

Sometimes several pictures are worth several thousand words:

Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan waits for people to show up at her book signing near President Bush’s ranch on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005 in Crawford, Texas.

Frankly I’m amazed the DNC/AP allowed these photos to see the light of day.

Usually their photogs do their (un-level) best to angle their cameras and crop their pictures to make Mother Sheehan always appear to be at the center of a worshipful swarm.

I’m afraid someone is going to be in hot water for letting us glimpse the truth.

  Update!

As if to drive home my point, this is the photo from this series that Reuters decided to run with:

Again, note the bizarre angle and the severe cropping. In Hollywood this is called "protecting your star."
