Just in time to save us from debating a New Yorker cover that left so very many of us so very confused (was Michael Eric Dyson really expounding on the intrinsically unsatirical nature of fist-bumps on the News Hour?) here’s an uncomplicated picture of Barack Obama holding a three-legged puppy dog at the Lincoln Memorial. The picture is on the side of the bus promoting a book by Jana Kohl about puppy mills—-Baby, the ridiculously cute dog in the photo, was rescued from such a place—-and both Baby and Kohl are in town for the next few days. On Saturday Kohl will be signing books at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City, as part of the Taking Action for Animals conference. No word on whether it’s available as a poster.
