Yes, It Has Come To This: White House Releases Long-Form Photo Of Obama Firing A Gun

After a bunch of Skeet Truthers totally didn’t believe that Obama goes skeet-shooting at Camp David (because of how he is gay), the White House actually released a photo on Saturday of Obama firing a rifle. Yes, they really did that. It even has an official credit and everything: “President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)” Of course, Republicans won’t truly accept Obama as a real leader, like Dick Cheney, until he shoots an old man in the face. But wait, there is more, as the Ghost of Andrew Breitbart and Drudge are informing us. Do you know the White House does not want you to photoshop this picture?

Get A Snack, Rubio And Vitter Are Having A Diaper-Hooker-Immigrant Catfight

Marco Rubio’s camp is firing back at Sen David Vitter (R-The Best Little Whorehouse In D.C.). After Vitter said Rubio was “nuts” for wanting to pass an immigration reform bill, a “source close to Rubio” sent an unsolicited e-mail to Politico: “David Vitter has done some nuttier things in his life.” Read more on Get A Snack, Rubio And Vitter Are Having A Diaper-Hooker-Immigrant Catfight…

Australia’s ‘First Bloke’ Talks Prostate Exams From Asian Women (Video)

Here’s a little humor from, um, down under. At a reception for the Australian and West Indies cricket teams, Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s longtime boyfriend, Tim Mathieson, took the time to discuss his work in men’s health awareness. “We can get a blood test for it, but the digital examination is the only true way to get a correct reading on your prostate. So make sure you go and do that,” said the “First Bloke.” “And perhaps look for a small, female Asian doctor is probably the best way to go there.” Read more on Australia’s ‘First Bloke’ Talks Prostate Exams From Asian Women (Video)…

Wingnut Congresswoman Demands To See Obama’s Longform Skeet-Shooting Video

This might be the first time ever that right-wingers accused a black man of not having a gun. OB (Original Birther) Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) appeared Monday night on CNN, and totally didn’t believe that Obama goes skeet-shooting, as he told the New Republic. “If he is a skeet-shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why has he not referenced it at any point in time?” said Blackburn. “As we have had this gun debate that is ongoing, you would have thought it would have been a point of reference.” Read more on Wingnut Congresswoman Demands To See Obama’s Longform Skeet-Shooting Video…

Iowa Rep. Steve King Stars In Tragic Tale ‘A Christmas Without Guns’

Rep. Steve King (R-Red Dawn) has a new grievance against gun-registration proposals: They would ruin his family’s Christmas. Speaking to the birther conspiracy site World Net Daily, King castigated Democratic proposals in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre. “And I look at the President’s argument on background checks. That would mean that every transaction on guns in America would have to be approved by a federally licensed firearms dealer,” King explained. “And that would mean that Christmas at the Kings would be outlawed unless one of us got a federal firearms license. If we want to trade guns or buy one for each other, it can’t change hands without having the universal registration component of that. So I’m concerned about that from a constitutional perspective.” Read more on Iowa Rep. Steve King Stars In Tragic Tale ‘A Christmas Without Guns’…

BREAKING: Florida Republicans Don’t Want To Steal The White House

In a major victory for democracy, Republican leaders in Florida have declared that they are against stealing a presidential election. Yes. Really. In the wake of a new legislative push by some Republicans in Virginia — who want to make it so Democrats can only get 4 of the state’s 11 Electoral Votes, after Barack Obama carried Virginia twice as the first Democrat to win the state in almost 50 years — more attention is being cast on proposals to decide the Electoral College by each House district. (And of course, those districts were widely drawn by Republicans after their state victories in 2010.) But in Florida, the state House Speaker Will Weatherford (R) is saying no. “To me, that’s like saying in a football game, ‘We should have only three quarters, because we were winning after three quarters and they beat us in the fourth,” Weatherford told the Miami Herald on Thursday. “I don’t think we need to change the rules of the game, I think we need to get better.” We will pause here to let you wipe your brains off your monitor.

Idiot Senator Complains About Lack Of Benghazi Briefings He Skipped, Just Like The Other Idiots (UPDATE!)

Come on. What difference does it make that Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, last seen getting clowned by Hillary Clinton, wasn’t at the intelligence briefing on Benghazi? At John Kerry’s somnolent confirmation hearing for Secretary of State on Thursday, Kerry showed up Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Galt’s Gulch), on the latter’s very serious public crusade to get to the bottom of the killing of the American Ambassador in Benghazi — revealing that Johnson himself didn’t attend the intelligence briefing. (SEE UPDATE BELOW.) Perhaps he was busy at the press conference where Walnuts, Graham, and whatsername, WHERE’STHEGIRL, were complaining that they weren’t getting intelligence briefings, while the intelligence briefing was going on.
