  1. Great idea, but you left out the squirrel. :)

    The White House needs better photoshoppers; their high school volunteers just aren’t cutting the mustard.

  2. People who actually believe that bullshit should have their right to vote removed.

  3. Although there are so many options, this may be Sondra’s finest ‘shop.

    Peggy, actually, I do believe she included the squirrel — the one leaning backward with the white t-shirt?

    (should have given him a fiddle, or guitar, or golf club or something though)

  4. BO: “Say, Joe . . . once you’ve shot a nice mess of skeet, what’s the best way to cook ‘em?”

    Joe: “Ask Michelle, boy. Hell, woman like yours prob’ly knows how to cook all that redneck stuff.”

    MO: “You shoot ‘em . . . you clean ‘em and cook ‘em. I got a plane to catch.”

  5. I heard the photo is fake. I think they’re wrong. The photo is real and the President is fake.

  6. *bwahahahahahaha*
    Tears runnin’ down my cheeks, here, boss.

    It’s an Iran-quality PhotoShop.
    I especially like how they cut off the golf shoes.
    Disappointed they didn’t include more shotguns, though.
    Adding Cheney would’a been a nice touch.

    Now, where’s that birth certificate?

  7. Nothing like shooting skeet when your shotgun is pointed at the ground and you are reeling backwards——for a good body position to hit a clay pidgeon!

    I call—-Bull——Shit!

    But, then I risk being called a nebish, for only having 10 yrs skeet shooting experience……..and……….not being familiar w the Chicago technique…….which is mostly done at night!

  8. So that’s how they handle shotguns in chicago?

    I’m thinking if he really fired one he’d let go of it and crack his head like some of the first timers on you tube.

    And the minders would give him blanks for their own safety.

    Next week’s question concerns snipe hunting at Camp David.

    They’ll take jay carney for bait.

  9. @2 People who actually believe that bullshit should have their right to vote removed. CI

    The whole freeking gubbamint is like that CI. There is evil in this land that I think is going back to the days of Goebbels and Hitler with the Commie Stateism thrown in. This is one demonic regime. Propaganda and lies daily. Or that muzzie term :Taqiyya.

  11. Gun Safety Rule # 56: Do not break dance while holding a shotgun.

    Comment by RonF — January 29, 2013 @ 3:54 pm

  12. ^ Rule #57:
    Do not make a tenderfoot dance in an old-West saloon by shooting a shotgun at his feet.

  13. God, these people are stupid.

  14. Is Piers Morgan consuting for TNR now? He has some experience with this, but with no better success.

    Comment by Justin Credible — January 29, 2013 @ 5:46 pm

  15. I don’t see anything out of the ordinary, from a journalistic point of view. I mean, yeah, the ‘shop was a little lower quality than average, but that’s not new.

    Al-reuters is famous for it.

    Comment by Merovign — January 29, 2013 @ 6:25 pm

  16. Actually, Poos Morgan is famous for it, too.

    Comment by Merovign — January 29, 2013 @ 6:25 pm

  17. Obviously, there’s photographic evidence of Obama shooting skeet – it just took them a while to make it hunt it down, is all.

    Comment by Nate — January 29, 2013 @ 6:42 pm

  18. The skeet won.

  20. What classic form!!! He must surely have an Instructor rating.

    But wait …. aren’t skeet an endangered species?

    PS: Is that photo really one released by th White House?

    Comment by ZZMike — January 29, 2013 @ 7:43 pm

  21. Yes, Obobo does seem to be a bit, shall we say, unfamiliar with proper techniques for handling firearms.

    Anyone want to comment on Sen Frankenstein’s finger discipline at her newser?

    (P.S. Help a moron out folks – how do you post an image here that doesn’t have a URL? ie one on my desktop [should I ever have something worth posting]?)

  22. LotF, I go to and upload my image there.

    Then copy the html link and paste it into the comment.

  23. LotF…
    she STILL needs some lessons… as does our illustrious “skeet shooter”

    Comment by Melissa In Texas — January 29, 2013 @ 8:14 pm

  24. Look folks, the Photoshopped picture of ‘O’ is fake but inaccurate.

    Last time he ‘shotup’ was when he was on cocaine (as he wrote in his own book!)

    Comment by Paul — January 29, 2013 @ 8:40 pm

  25. Oh shit, Stilton hurt me. ROTFLMAO.

    Comment by dick, not quite dead white guy — January 29, 2013 @ 9:24 pm

  26. I’ve shot a lot of skeet, but never from a position like that.
