A Memory of “Imperial Commander”

November 23, 2013

There is, apparently, some rumour that Rupert Murdoch’s marriage to Wendy Deng came to an end partly as a result of an affair between Ms. Deng and former British PM Tony Blair.  The rumour doesn’t sound altogether reasonable to me.  However, it did remind me of this image of George Bush and Cherie Blair I created back in the day:
