Whitest White Man in the History of Whiteness

The White House announced yesterday the news that First Daughter Jenna Bush will marry former Karl Rove protege Henry Hager. And, to commemorate the occasion, they released a photograph of the happy couple.

Now, look, I'm no student of American photography, but to my untrained eye that is indeed the whitest picture in the recorded history of "whiteness." From the plastered hair to the fake smile to the traditional blue suit with gold tie look (the very look I was, admittedly, planning to wear to a friend's wedding in a few weeks, and which I am now urgently reconsidering), young Mr. Hager has got it all.
