    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Tuesday, February 10, 2004

    A Bush look-alike, up to no good 

    Students walking through the front door of Lehigh University's Maginnes Hall immediately come face to face with a giant color photograph of President George W. Bush cuddling a glamorous brunette clad in a slip and blue stockings.

    The brunette is ecstatic, presumably because her playful companion has draped his left arm over her shoulder and planted his hand firmly on her right breast.

    If this scene seems improbable, it is. We aren't really seeing our commander-in-chief out for an evening of boozing and tomfoolery but an actor, a paint salesman from Missouri who could pass for the President's mischievous twin.

    Lehigh's College Republicans deem the Bush image offensive because, as organization president Neal Hoffman opined in the campus newspaper: "He's one of the few presidents who has actually been faithful to his wife, and he doesn't drink anymore."

    But the young Republicans are even more agitated by the hanging of Larry Fink's photos - a dozen satirical "fashion" shots commissioned by the New York Times Magazine and slated to run on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2001 - in Maginnes Hall, where political science, history and international relations are taught.
