Rightbloggers and the Great Obama Skeet-Shooting Mom Jeans Conspiracy

"White House actually commanded people not to photoshop the Obama gun picture" (Director Blue); "What kind of dictator is this guy?... it would appear that not only does Obama have an issue with the Second Amendment and a right to bear arms. He also seems to have one with the First Amendment and free speech as well" (Scared Monkeys); "The White House's decree... the White House edict..." (Doug Powers, Michelle Malkin) etc.

IMPEACH.
"They don't want you to Photoshop the picture," declared Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, who then found some guy to criticize the President's shooting form: "Either the recoil kicked his ass or he doesn't know to lean into the shot when shooting," said Some Guy. "He shoots a gun like he throws a baseball... It means he's a panzy. And it still threw him back. It also means he never shoots a gun." This he-man "did not wish to be identified."

Several rightbloggers bravely exercised their First Amendment rights by photoshopping the image. You can imagine what those were like ("Shooting both the American flag and the Constitution were popular choices for the photo," reported Glenn Beck's The Blaze). SooperMexican did the most popular one, replacing the lower half of Obama's body with that of a girl in Daisy Dukes because, well, Obama's a panzy we guess. "You know not all is lost when reverence for the occupiers of the White House is entirely shunned in favor of disdain for the dictator via symbolic fun," gurgled Karen de Coster at Lew Rockwell's blog.

Prodded by David Plouffe and other Democratic operatives, who really deserve a bonus, some folks noticed the fuss rightbloggers were making over the whole thing, and (who can blame them?) made fun of them. Breitbart.com reacted: "MEDIA FOLLOWS OBAMA'S ORDERS TO MOCK SKEET-GATE SKEPTICS... You see, the media is proud to publicly proclaim that it doesn't matter if Obama lies. No, really. How depressing to know a White House reporter at a major news outlet doesn't give a 'rat's a**' if the president of the United States is lying"... about shooting skeet.

So, to recap: The President says skeet shooting goes on at Camp David. Rightbloggers say it's bullshit. The President releases a photo of himself firing a weapon. Rightbloggers give it the full Jim Garrison treatment, and claim the White House is trying to deprive them of their First Amendment right to make jokes about it. We know how the kind of people who think Obama is a Muslim unAmerican panzy will respond to this. But how do you think normal people will respond?

What's the troll-target next week, Mr. President? Gay rights? Can't wait.

The people of Wingnuttistan just can't help themselves. 

They have learned nothing in 4 years, let alone the 4 months since President Obama uttered the words 'Please proceed, Governor".

It's like "Groundhog Day" except here Bill Murray's character, over and over, gets to play No-True-Scotsman-Rope-a-Dope with the usual wingnut idiots.

Blackburn is all Klass. “I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him.”  Blackburn said. “I bet I’ll beat him.”

So she thinks the President of the United State should grant her the extraordinary honor of a personal invitation to socialize with him at his private vacation home, so that she can use it as an opportunity to humiliate him? Jesus, who taught these people manners?

The right wing takes the fun out of satire when they become satirical in reality.

"Tennessee GOP Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn challenged Obama to a skeet-shooting match."

Pfft, like the Secret Service is going to let one of you crazies anywhere near Obama with a loaded gun. They may have their problems when it comes to ladies of negotiable affection, but they ain't STUPID.

Good collation. Good clean fun. Right wing bloggers seem to have no sense of the line dividing hatred from ridiculousness. Did Ronald Reagan and George Bush really spend all that much time clearing brush? How ridiculous would anyone want to make himself, challenging Bush to a brush-clearing contest to show that it's all a filthy lie? Who cares, and what does it have to do with anything, anyway? 


If I was at a private compound with a skeet range and someone gave me a shotgun, I guess I'd kill a few of those little devils, and have the chef make them into a nice clay pie so it wouldn't just seem gratuitous. But would I want to do it again the next day too? Twice, a year apart, would be "all the time", for me.
