Politico ran a photo today with a story on Obama speaking in Cincinnati, which seemed typical and boring enough until Gawker noticed that on the hill to the left and behind the president a man appeared to be turned away and, with nature calling--perhaps screaming--was taking a leak. Well, who knows, maybe he was texting. Or, as some have suggested, he was a plainclothes Secret Service agent. If not, would they allow someone there with a clear shot--or leak--at the president? UPDATE: @BryanSimpson tweets to me: " I was there. No public was allowed over there. Guy wasn't taking a leak he had a camera looking at viewfinder."
But here it is along with the Gawker analysis.
