A lot of people were wondering what the building behind McCain during his speech last night was. Talking Points Memo solved the mystery – it’s Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, CA.
An even bigger mystery is why they chose that picture. I’m guessing it went something like this:
Speech Writer: Get me a picture of the Walter Reed Medical Center.
Flunky 1: OK, I’ll do an image search on Google.
Flunky 1: Here’s a good one.
Flunky 2: I don’t think that’s the Walter Reed Medical Center.
Speech Writer: Ah hell… at least it has “Walter Reed” in the name. Go with it anyway. Nobody will know the difference.
