New Photo of Cheney in Cockpit = Dukakis in Tank Photo

"Vice President Dick Cheney sits inside the cockpit of a B-2 Stealth Bomber with pilot Capt. Luke Jayne during a visit to Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, Friday, October 27, 2006. While at Whiteman AFB the Vice President also participated in briefings and attended a rally with over 2,000 military troops and their families. White House photo by David Bohrer."
-- From the White House.

The image and photo caption above were posted in the last few days on the White House's page for Dick "five Vietnam War service deferments" Cheney. It definitely has an eery resemblance to another photo of a wimpy politician using military muscle to compensate for lack of leadership, to my eyes.

From the 1988 presidential campaign trail:
