What a week! From the intriguing posts on Laura Novak’s blog to the much anticipated release of Sarah Palin’s emails, there is so much new and old material to review. I have literally spent the better part of the last two days engrossed in reading comments on Ms. Novak’s blog and perusing the emails available online.
This picture of Bristol and Trig, taken during McCain’s announcement of Sarah as his running mate on August 29, 2008, was linked to in the comments on Laura Novak’s blog. It was part of a composite comparison of Trig’s ear.
To me, Bristol seems angry. At who? Willow is seated on Bristol’s right, wearing red. Bristol’s anger appears to be directed at someone standing on the other side of Willow, judging by the angle of her gaze.
And who or what is she pointing at to her left. I don’t know the identity of the person sitting directly to her left but I don’t think she is pointing at that person. It looks like she might be pointing at someone or something to her left but also behind her.
Another thing that strikes me about this photo is her white-knuckled grasp of Trig. A mother’s protective hold?
The Bristol we see today seems far less mature than the Bristol we see in this picture.
Please share your thoughts on what is going on in this picture and if anyone has more info on what was going on when this picture was taken please email me or leave a comment.
