White House Fountain Foto #2: Gitmo Prisoners Also Attacking White House

OMG prisoners from Gitmo have flown up from Cuba — just for the afternoon, gotta work tomorrow morning — to fête Barack Obama and his barely visible green fountain! These guys will just do wonders for the town of Leavenworth, Kansas. What a completely insane picture from Wonkette ultra-abortionist operative “Jeffrey.”

    Red, black, and green. Very festive. Also, most people wear a bag over their head the morning *after* St. Patrick’s Day.

    Damn. I was hoping to win with my skillful photoshop of M. Obama’s arms, but we have a winner.

    Put the Gitmo prisoners to work cleaning up the White House grounds. Then they can clean all the bat shit out of the Capitol rotunda.

    [re=267213]Hedley Lamar[/re]: I KNOW, all that green v. orange, its just like Belfast circa 1977.

  5. Accordion-o-rama

    Oh, it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen.

    The inmates, they was Orange and me fountain, it was green…

  6. BitterPolitico

    I saw those people a few weeks ago in front of St. Michael’s with signs that said “Close Guantanamo.” I don’t think they got the memo.

  7. Tommy Says Soooo, Jugdish!

    This is just the annual meeting of the Michael Hutchence fan club….Hope likes the alt rock.

  8. problemwithcaring

    You know, I’ve changed my mind. From that angle, that fountain idea really is festive…

  9. Bronkers

    Northern Prods rainin’ on the green good time. Tsk. Not all Orangemen play basketball at Syracuse. Call George Mitchell and let him know the Accords are in peril.

  10. Bearbloke

    Looks like they stumbled across another room of ‘leftovers’ from in Ol’ man Cheney’s White House of Horrors….

  11. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Relax, everybody. It’s just the execs at AIG after paying Barry a personal visit.

    I had a conversation with a woman who she said she didn’t want the prisoners transferred to the continental U.S. because it might not be as safe. She’s fine with holding people indefinitely without trial, though. I like her, but I really, really wanted to punch her. Goddamn fucking cowards would sell out the Bill of Rights in a SECOND if it meant they were the slightest bit less anxious about ephemeral threats.

    Are those pylons or just official Guantanamo headgear for when detainees are made to stand in the corner?

    Also: the mojito is NOT a sanctioned St. Patrick’s day drink.

  14. bitchincamaro

    WIN to all commenters today, cuz St. Paddy spread the wealth luck o’ the Irish all around today. [re=267252]One Yield Regular[/re]: An extra Guinness to you, and may you fall like a sack o’ potatoes from one too many.

    Question: why is it “St.” Patrick’s Day and not “St.” Valentine’s Day? Throw me a bone, sheeple.

  15. Violenza

    [re=267248]Lazy Media[/re]: Leavenworth doesn’t want them, but they would be an improvement for that population, honestly. More Kansans should wear bags over their heads – it would give my eyes a break from the constant horrorshow.

    [re=267259]bitchincamaro[/re]: Re: “St.” Valentine’s Day

    Maybe the Catholic Church is against it. Love often leads to sex, which could lead to pregnancy (or worse yet, gay sex), which could lead to abortion (or worse yet, gay marriage). The Pope would rather we get drunk and throw up green bile. That only leads to a headache.

  17. Mad Farmer Manifest

    I think that wearing orange on St. Patrick’s Day is just offensive. No sensitivity towards the suffering of the Irish people at the hands of the Orange Order. Someone should torture those prisoners to teach them a lesson.

  18. Aurelio

    Kudos to the people who staged that demonstration. What a great piece of political theater. Or am I the only one who is not numb to this stuff these days?

  19. Will work for shoes

    [re=267248]Lazy Media[/re]: That argument about not wanting people held in the US is utter crap. Do these people really think that they’ll be allowed to roam free? Not to mention, how many actually might have been guilty of something when they were originally taken?

    Jesus, help me.

  20. Mad Farmer Manifest

    [re=267349]Gallowglass[/re]: I’m hoping to see a few of those at the bar later today.

  21. Atlas Spanked

    Oh, I thought that was just a photo of Mexican day laborers headed for their gardening jobs in Georgetown.

  22. Lascauxcaveman

    [re=267313]Jukesgrrl[/re]: My kids go to a Catholic school and there, it very much is “Saint” Valentine’s Day. (Or at least it was, last Feb.) It’s all candy and cards, though. None of the sexeh underwear or anything like that.

  23. Mahousu

    [re=267259]bitchincamaro[/re]: If it makes you feel better, it’s always called the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Somehow when you’re talking massive amounts of death, you have to have a saint involved. If it’s just chocolate and flowers, saints are optional.

  24. gurukalehuru

    Let’s go with the Green and Orange. That whole red, white and blue thing is getting a bit worn out.
