Who Am I?

Gov. Charlie Crist looks closely at his portrait that hangs in City Hall, Tuesday, March 31, 2009, in Tallahassee, Fla. Crist was at the hall to attend the kids only town hall meeting.(AP Photo/Phil Coale)

The above picture is a couple of weeks old, but I only just saw it today and was struck by its complex layers of meaning. It is a wonderful photograph.

Speaking of Gay Charlie Crist™, the movie Outrage opened last Friday, and it doesn't seem to be setting the world on fire. Perhaps the whole "Republican jerk turns out to be a hairdresser" plot has become too predictable for contemporary audiences?

Needs more lesbians.

Portrait of Dorian Grey, anyone?

This picture reminds me of "The Picture of Dorian Gray".

LOOK at that man's skin!
If that's not lotioned and potioned and toned gay man skin, I'll eat my Crocs.

I'm struck by how much older he looks in profile. I don't think I've ever seen anything but his carefully posed frontal shots.

It's the spectacles. Very Geppetto.
