The White House broke with tradition Wednesday night and refused to let photojournalists shoot still pictures of the president at the podium after his prime-time address on the Iraq war.

As a result, newspapers and wire services had little choice but to run low-quality frame grabs from the video of the speech. An official handout photo from the White House, which most news outlets rejected, was the only other option. Caught in a bind on deadline, some newspapers ran the official White House photo with no disclosure that it was provided by the government.


And he looks baaaaaad...

When has he ever looked good? He is an incredibly ugly man, with an internal rot which increasingly registers in his face everytime his picture is taken.

This photo would be perfect with some jail bars in front, the suit and tie replaced with an orange jumpsuit (with no codpiece), the presidential seal removed, and information indicating that Bush was being photographed just before his trip to the Hague for his war crimes trial. :P
