I've been getting a kick out of campaign ads that show photos of a candidate's opponent. They always pick the worst possible photo they can find, so they can portray the opponent as a scumbag. I got to thinking about it, and I thought it would be fun to dig through the shots I've taken of candidates to see what sorts of "flattering" things I could find.

I thought you might get a kick out of some of the "worst of the worst" shots I've taken at various political rallies, mostly from this year. Pardon the small size of these; I used the same stuff in my blog today :)

I'm not voting for any of them! I REFUSE TO ELECT SOMEONE THAT ISN'T PHOTOGENIC 100% OF THE TIME!!!!

Some of those are hilarious, the Hilary one is by far the best. The others look like they have been drinking ;P
