Barry's Got A Gun
Last August, President Obama went skeet-shooting at Camp David, or so we're told. Recently, this photo was released, to back up a previous claim that he frequently shoots clay pigeons, and to respond to Representative Marsha Blackburn's (R-TN) challenge to a skeet shoot. (As Instapundit points out, at least one woman has better shooting form than Barry.) Along with the pic came a warning not to manipulate it - which didn't get very far. The American Thinker claims that the photo is a fake in the first place. I thought that the smoke coming out of the side of the gun's barrel was a bit peculiar, but apparently, some guns have a side exhaust port on the barrel. Either that, or across the road there was a second shooter hiding in the woody knoll. Let the conspiracy theories begin! As indicated by the New York Post and Michelle Malkin's blog, Teh OneTM has inspired quite a bit of mockery with this pic. From the latter (including a commenter or two thereon), come some of the above links and this whimsical explanation of what he might be shooting at.
