Something struck me while looking at one of the pictures of Melissa McEwan's hero, Hillary Clinton, in the post I linked to in my previous.
You frequently see shots of our fearless leaders in settings like these. Two awkwardly large chairs pointed towards the cameras, the subjects of the photographs sitting awkwardly half facing the cameras, half facing each other, twisted in what looks like massively uncomfortable positions, leaning in to one another to attempt to bridge the awkwardly large distance between them as they talk, legs dangling uncomfortably, never knowing whether to cross or stay feet planted on the floor.
One: It reminds me of the awkward posing of televised sketch comedy.
Two: Is there any question this is anything but theater?
Three: Maybe at the very least sitting in these positions gives these people terrible back pain, which would totally make up for all the killing and everything.
