    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Thursday, August 26, 2004

    Oh, THAT cleavage-displaying photo 

    This week's most unexpected bit of pre-convention buzz came courtesy of Laurie Coleman, the actress-wife of Minnesota's Republican senator Norm Coleman, who posed for a pair of "provocative" cheesecake photos that appeared in The Washington Post on Thursday.

    See the photos for yourself: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A34218-2004Aug25.html The Post described them as being released "just in time for the Republican National Convention." Indeed.

    Mrs. Coleman's photos were in fact garnering much attention _ drawing not only a laudatory statement from the senator (he was "proud of her and what she has accomplished") but also from curious Post readers. Laurie Coleman's photos ranked as the second-most-viewed pictures on the Post website on Thursday -- bested only by a photo of Pamela Anderson. (There wasn't much interest in that photo of John Ashcroft, evidently).

    Webb Blog intends to follow developments in this cleavage-displaying, lingerie-wearing story.
