Latest Mug Shot Fashion Statements
It’s early in the 2009 season, but it seems that a grass roots fashion trend has emerged. Check the booking photos provided on The Smoking Gun here (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2008/1105082obamahair1.html), and here(http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2008/1217081mugyear20.html). Scores of young fans of the world’s most famous Abe Lincoln Impersonator have been using their mug shots as an opportunity to continue to promote their political affiliation. I don’t remember a flurry of “Nixon’s the One” police blotter photos or seeing “I Like Ike” plastered across perp chests. Perhaps this is the Change we were looking for?
