Ao Dai Gay?

December 2, 2006

The best moment of the trip was when the leaders of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference were gathered together wearing colorful Vietnamese “ao dai” silk tunics.

In the picture run by The New York Times, Mr. Bush is whispering something to Russian President Vladmir Putin, both of them looking fetching in blue. In front, German Chancellor Angela Merkel is in pink with a traditional hat, looking apprehensive, as if some clown is about to descend and give her a back rub. For all the world, it could be the family picture at a gay wedding.

All in all, a Happy Thanksgiving indeed.
