The Political Holiday Photo Album
I’ve been writing about political holidays a lot recently and there is a reason for that. It’s pretty much all anyone is doing these days. So let’s not fight it, and go through some of this year’s best political holiday photographs, and some of our old favourites. Just so you know, I tried to format these things so that I could have pictures attached to commentary in a clean, linear fashion, but it just doesn’t want to happen. I don’t know if you know this, but computers hate me, and I get angry all I want, but ultimately take their shit because computers always win and I need them more then they need me. It’s a very unhealthy relationship. Seeing as how my web-designer is currently on holidays himself (in Alberta though, so… no jealousy here) we’re just going to have to deal with this mess I’ve made.
Sarkozy 2007: After the unairbrushed photo came out, Sarko ate a tub of ice cream and watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding on loop
These Czech Politicians took advantage of holiday season in Europe by erecting these posters.... in Croatia.
Merkel 2010: Merkel and the man who is man enough for Merkel
Bush 2001: I had to put a Bush picture in because whenever I typed politician + holiday into Google, literally thousands of photos of Bush shooting things and clearing old twigs in Texas popped up.
Blair in ... don't care: You'll see that it's not just Tony and Scary Cherrie, but that elderly swashbuckler is in fact Silvio Berlusconi.
Putin 2009: The photo series that made me want to blog. Still my highest Google traffic comes from Putin + Moobs.
Boris Yeltsin 1997: As hilarious as we think Putin's photos are, Yeltsin wins. Democracy always wins.
