The word has been out for at least 5 years. "I need photos that'll make the people I hate look bad."
Thus, we end up with this. I have, on rare occasion, had a chance to photog a famous face. If you stare at someone long enough you'll see them rub their nose so that it looks like they're digging in it. VP Cheney may have blinked. The shutter speed setting on the camera was no slower than 1/60 of a second.
Anything to create a negative buzz. "He's too old for the job, bad heart, you know." Sheesh.
