Why is this man smiling?

Milwaukee Magazine
files a belated report from the campaign trail:

When Cheney ordered a decaf coffee and sat on a concrete ledge outside, Kopp’s manager Scott Borkin graciously brought him a sample of frozen custard. “The guy came all the way from the White House,” Borkin says. “He’s got to try our custard.”

The normally serious Cheney flashed a winning smile for Borkin, and [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel photographer Dale] Guldan snapped an attention-grabbing photo that would later be chosen for the front page of the paper’s September 11 Metro section.

Guldan got a call from a reader the next day. “Did you notice anything unusual about that picture?” the reader asked.

Upon closer inspection, it seems the vice president’s smile was not his biggest, ahem, asset. Is that what we think it is?

“You’re not imagining it,” Guldan says of the unintentionally revealing photo.

Let’s just say the snugness of Cheney’s pants left little to the imagination, and we’re not talking about his waistline.

One Journal Sentinel reader pointed out the blooper in an e-mail to WKLH-FM radio hosts Dave Luczak, Carole Caine and Kevin Brandt, who had a hoot talking about it during their popular morning show.

“It’s nice to have someone of that magnitude in the White House,” Brandt joked.

Last March, you may recall, Wonkette reached a dead end in her quest for confirmation of John Kerry's elusive WMD: "Wonkette has obtained crucial follow-up information that addresses the question left, ahem, dangling after John Kerry's jockstrap-shopping junket. A journalist on the scene reports: 'It was not that big.'"

Maybe she was looking in the wrong place all along.
