    Sometimes pictures really do say it all, unfortunately, I don't think you could have picked a worse picture to illustrate that point. On its own, I don't think that picture tells me anything about BP, the oil spill, or even that the dolphin had died.

    And speaking of chicken, I think a much more interesting picture is this one:

    That is the Russian president sitting across from the President Obama.

    The slobbering moonbat liberal a$s holes are trying to make us all eat tofu, granola and crabgrass, look at the sh!t on that table that their beautiful paddle ear leader is shoving down his gullet.

    I know!!! What I don't know is how they got a table at Ray's Hell Burgers at noon time. The rest of us peons have to stand up at the stand up tables. They don't take credit cards, it's cash only, there's no waiters or waitresses, you order at the counter, deli-style and wait for your number to be called, it's loud, it's rowdy and the staff prides itself on rudeness.

    Everyone loves it there.

    I like that that the two presidents each ordered their own burger but they split an order of fries.

    It's what you do in lean times.

    You can edit out the picture.

    Regarding the dolphin picture, I don't know, I just don't see it. Its a poor quality picture so it doesn't look like either are covered in oil and the water and beach look pretty nice. I could think of plenty of captions for that picture that don't put it into that context. I just don't the picture illustrates the point.

    Ray's is one of the most overrated places in DC. Kind of like Ben's Chili Bowl.

    Meh. I look at the picture and think "Hey, a guy carrying a big fish"
    Then I think "A mammal fish... does that make it worse?"
    Then I think "I wonder if they taste less fishy because they're mammals"
    To which I end with "I bet they taste like chicken"

    I then go about my day not caring about the oil spill and it's effect on aquatic life in the Gulf. Do I think the oil spill is bad? Hell ya, worse than anything I can think of. Do I think it's forever affecting the entire Gulf ecosystem for the worse? Yup. Does this picture evoke any type of reaction from me about it? Nope. There are probably a gazillion pictures of the spill by now, and lots will evoke direct emotional responses to the devestation created by the spill, but a clean dude carrying a clean dolphin in clear waters... not so much.

    This is true. There is no context for the picture in and of itself.

    But I do think we haven't fully internalized the catastrophic effect that this spill will have on the GoM ecosystem.

    Speaking of pictures (Financial Overhaul Bill):

    I can only picture someone (representing the American People) in the room Blarney just left, who is glad they can finally let go of their ankles.

    You're right. Restrictions on derivatives = American people getting boned.

    I know , you cant ever get a table there, love Ray's. Tho there is a pool hall and burger place called Wilbers or something that also good.

    I like these pics better.

    Dolphins swimming in oil on shore, they wont last long

    Now that one really does say it all! Gross, but poignant. Sad really.

    And so nothing, its just a very interesting picture and fit into the context of "sometimes pictures really do say it all". I think it says quite a bit about the President, some good and some bad, but very telling.
