come on teabaggers, try harder!

I saw this photo posted AGAIN on a right-wing nut-job fruit-bat dip-stick website (I got lost on the interwebs):

They’re original, aren’t they? Although not as original as the non-photoshopped version of the pic – which was darkened (!!), flipped and cigarette-ized:

Museum of Hoaxes: In early 2008 the top photo began circulating online, showing Obama with a cigarette in his mouth. It is not real. The original photo (bottom) was taken by Kwame Ross on Aug. 3, 2004 while then-State Sen. Obama met with constituents at the University of Illinois while campaigning to become a U.S. Senator. An unknown hoaxer digitally added the cigarette into the photo.

Oh dear

    So desperate. So pathetic. So tragic, really. I simply cannot imagine what it’s like to hate this man. It’s obviously incredibly difficult. Since he’s pretty amazing on a daily basis, they have to just make shit like this up. They swiftboat him regularly and he just brushes it off and continues working hard every day. He’s truly a hero, IMHO. They are truly LIARS.
