Cheesy campaign photos

The photo linked below is my favorite so far this year. Richard Moore apparently will campaign any time a crowd gathers, witness this photo:

And here's a nice family portrait from Bill Graham:

Disclaimer: Please note that I'm not making fun of Bill Graham's family. He's got a nice looking crew. It's just that photo is just a tad cheesy!

My Eyes... my eyes

oh, to be blind right now.

Damn you, damn them!

What really went on behind the Pics?

Why is Richard Moore campaigning in the middle of a crime scene? I don't know what he had to say that was so important, but he couldn't he at least let the police do their job? * Pink Panther

" Okay Boys! I mean Girls too! Book'em Dano!!!!!" * Inspector Richard

" Inspector Richard! WTF is Dano?" * Blond Cop

I can just hear the photographer: "Okay, hold hands, start walking, plaster a big smile on your ace and look up at the sky!" * Graham family values Pic

" Look! Up in the sky! It's a plane! No It's Superman! Ah crap! It's Jesus and he coming back to kick our family ass for being a retarded family.

Wow, those are out of a made-for-TV movie

Either they are the innocent folks about to be murdered at the beginning of a CSI episode or it's a Wag the Dog takeoff and the war to be fought is to cover up sex with an intern or sex with a dog.

Okay, it's late. I'm getting weird.
 
News of the 10th district: See Pat Go Bye Bye,

Every time we've had pictures done at "a studio"

They always make you lean in weird ways and duck your head or tilt it or whatever - feels like they had someone do that to them in that fmaily picture. But, it didn't work out.

Last time we had our pictures taken for Christmas cards a family friend who is a professional photographer did it. No leaning, no tilting, best pictures ever. Down at the Coker arboretum on campus.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Well teepack...guess we could go to Perdue's web site

...and find pictures of her disrupting a classroom for a photo op or there's the one of her looking quite demonic (it's a very bad pic) pushing a vial of pills on an elderly woman.

As much money as these people raise and spend it's amazing how amateurish their materials are. Sure does take away from the message.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I haven't checked out Perdue's site yet

Sounds like she's got some good cheesy ones, too.

Boy you were right

That one of her pushing the pills on the old lady is quite scary.

Campaign strategist: We need to do something to show that Beverly is concerned about medical care for the elderly.
Campaign intern: I've got an idea! Let's get a picture of her feeding an old lady her medicine. And she should have a very serious look on her face!
Campaign strategist: Great idea! We've raised enough money this quarter. Let's go do it!

Hahahahaha

OK...so maybe the candidates need to use BlueNC as a focus group. I don't see any of us letting Moore put himself in the middle of a crime scene. Seriously......his role as state treasurer has prepared him to be a CSI tech? That's almost a Dukakis/tank moment. If you want him with police/fire/medic there are ways to take pictures that don't involve crime scene tape.....or driving the fire truck with a helmet on.....I'm just saying......

To be fair.... everyone has a photo with school kids and Bev's is a good one. She has a great smile and she and the little girl appear sincerely happy in the photo. I was just picking on her. The other photo needs to come down. It's scary.

He was not at a crime scene

he is either photoshopped in there, or that is a classroom

Oh...I know that

we wouldn't have POSED him in a crime scene.

double-dipping

moore

Looks like Richard Moore is double-dipping, using the same photo with different blue-screen backgrounds for his personal and state-based websites.

From last year.

Pssst....Robert...many of them do that

Trust me.

Tin ears and marble eyes all of them...

I give this style approximately two more election cycles before it ceases to work completely.

I hate to see my leaders play-acting.

Play-acting

there you go. You pegged it. I don't want staged photos. I know some are necessary, but others just don't work.
