Thinking of The Children

So the photo below has been making the rounds as far as saying "oh isn't that sweet and how could anyone thing bad of him" because Kundera-esque kitsch knows no bounds on both sides, and visuals are powerful mediums. The camera only shows one angle, one dimension and any picture can be worth a thousand words of propaganda. Besides, part of Politics 101 is kissing babies and posing with kids. Who the hell are we kidding?
 
 let's take a look at the rest of the world, shall we? Here's Enver Hoxha, Der Fuhrer, Lenin, Richard Nixon, Josef Stalin, Hugo Chavez, Everybody's Not-Favorite Pope, Mr. KGB, and Robert Mugabe. Oh it's so sweet. Who would ever think that any of these people did anything that wasn't nice and didn't Care A Lot?

and of course this:

It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it, right Chuck?...
