It's not just the fairly silly look on Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons' visage in this one frame that was transmitted by Idaho Statesman photographer Shawn Raecke via the Associated Press. Surely there were others Raecke shot from this event in Boise last Monday when Gibbons met with three other Mountain West governors to discuss wildfire prevention, including Idaho Gov. "Butch" Otter seated besides Gibbons.
No, the look is bad enough. But if you look really close, there's one other thing: Our governor is seated behind Otter's name plate.
