The Picture of Donald Rumsfeld.

Old Rummy has apparently paid for an almost $50,000 portrait of himself to hang in the Department of Defense. This raises many questions, such as:

  1. Did it capture his soul? (There are so many things one could say here, but I won’t.)
  2. Why didn’t they paint the scene where he and Cheney have a Death Star model?
  3. Why is it that the first thing I think whenever I see Rumsfeld is: “Hey, it’s Alex DeLarge‘s grandpa”?

Okay, so the last one isn’t a question about this especially, but it’s been bothering me for a while.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
