Filner looks so creepy … how did he ever get elected in the first place?

Newspapers are probably publishing the most unflattering photos of him that they can, now that he has been deemed Bad.

What Mike said. I have noticed for a long time how media outlets pick their images of public figures based on whether they they think the person in question has been having a good time or a bad time. Every time the POTUS is perceived as having a bad time, they print pics of him looking pensive or worried, or making faces. Ditto other political figures.

I checked. Even his campaign photos don’t inspire confidence. The best looking one was actually his mug shot – in black and white.
