Get Out Of My Face

Andrew Sullivan spotted this amazing picture of President Bush talking to a child after a speech on the importance of Martin Luther King Jr.

The expression says it all.

Some comments from Bush about MLK's birthday :

Martin Luther King Day means two things to me. One is the opportunity to renew our deep desire for America to be a land of promise for everybody, a land of justice, and a land of opportunity. It's also an opportunity to serve our fellow citizens.

...our fellow citizens have got to understand that by loving a neighbor like you'd like to be loved yourself, by reaching out to someone who hurts, by just simply living a life of kindness and compassion, you can make America a better place and fulfill the dream of Martin Luther King.

Martin Luther King is a towering figure in the history of our country...

Bush didn't explain why he thought this was so.
