Wonk'd, and Snap'd: John Ashcroft, Tommy Franks
As you know, we love ourselves some Wonk'd sightings. There's still time to submit sightings for this week's round-up; so if you haven't done so already, please email us (subject line: "Wonk'd" or "Sighting").
We also adore photographs and video footage, which we'll be using even more liberally in the weeks ahead. When you submit Wonk'd sightings accompanied by photos -- e.g., a picture of E.J. Dionne and William Galston having lunch, or one of the tour bus of Kimora Lee
Simmons -- you bring us special joy.
So we'd like to encourage you to take great photos and send them our way. To get the ball rolling, we offer you reader-taken photos of two former "generals" -- ex-Attorney General John Ashcroft, and retired Army General Tommy Franks -- at recent college graduations.
Check them out, along with commentary from our secret paparazzi, after the jump.
"Here's John Ashcroft at the Georgetown Law graduation on 5/21. I saw him at the reception afterwards, glugging bottled sparkling water. Shockingly, the liberal student body let him alone and he seemed to be having a good conversation with a graduate and her family (a family friend maybe?). He was wearing a brown suit."
"Here is a picture of Tommy Franks in academic regalia defending the war in Iraq in his speech at the University of Texas at Arlington Graduation Celebration. It was May 12. I meant to send it a while back, but work has been crazy. I know many faculty were not happy he was speaking because of his politics."
