Mike McMenamin – Hire a Better Photographer

When I came back inside after getting my newspaper this morning, I found a political advertisement lodged in my door handle. Upon unrolling it, I first noticed the name Mike McMenamin, who is running for the county board. The second thing I noticed was that in the picture of him and his family, he is the only one not looking at the camera:


He also seems a bit disinterested. I don’t think Mike is all there.

I don’t know if he saw a squirrel, was making mental notes about turnip farming or maybe just didn’t know where to look, but you’d think that someone running for office could get a decent photographer to do the job right. I don’t know much about this guy other than the rash of good things he has said about himself in his literature, but personally I would rather elect someone who can follow a photographer’s simple directions to look at the camera.
