Apparently there were some elections yesterday. Go figure. Republicans won the governorships of two states, Virginia (Bob McDonnell) and New Jersey (Chris Christie). Here's a picture of the two winners from Yahoo's main page, taken just now:
Both look like dynamic guys, confident and self-assured in that most political of ways. "I am the man," each of them seem to be saying, "Because I won."
But check out the pictures that Yahoo used last night, as the returns were coming in:
The guy from Virginia looks dynamic, confident, a winner. The guy from New Jersey looks like he's been lost in a curtain maze for an hour.
"Hey, dude, you won the New Jersey race!"
"Wha--? Oh, thanks, now, can you tell me how to get outta here?"
Yahoo chose the picture that makes him look vaguely like Zero Mostel:
"I actually won??? I was trying to lose!"
