You Know You Live In A Banana Republic When…

You know you live in a Banana Republic when the official White House website includes a photo showing the sybaritic antics of the Vice President.

It will be interesting to see whether this page gets removed or not. For now, click this link to see V.P. Cheney outdoors enjoying the view of what appears to be a nude or scantily dressed woman. Note the reflection in his sunglasses.

My initial thought was that as soon as someone at the whitehouse.gov website notices the increased traffic to this page (I found out about it from popurls.com), the photo would be removed or edited. But then I thought a little more, and it occurred to me that this website, and the photo galleries, were presumably put together by professional designers and photographers. Photographer David Bohrer certainly knew the circumstances of the photo shoot. Perhaps this is a little message to the public that “Cheney gets some.”

Anyway, here’s the page for posterity, in case it does get updated. (Click image for full-size version in new window)

And the zoom-in.
