AP:(Washington, DC, 10-20-05) DeLay Smile May Foil Democrat Campaign Ads, By LAURIE KELLMAN Associated Press Writer
Question: Why is Tom DeLay smiling? After all, he's been indicted. Forced out of his job as House majority leader. And called into court for fingerprinting and a mugshot like a common criminal.
Answer: A photo of DeLay grinning from ear to ear doesn't pack quite the punch in a Democratic attack ad as one that looks more like the mugshot of, say, actor Hugh Grant.
Note the House of Representatives security pin on DeLay's lapel. He looks in the photo like a proud member of Congress who might just have won the lottery, not one indicted on charges of money laundering. The photo looks like it could have been taken anywhere. And that was just the point. (AND WHAT A PR PLOY it is! - Kudos to Tom DeLay! - how can a democratic media maven use this on an anti-neo-CON ad? No scowl - no threatening glare?)
