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

Fruitbat Republican Les Phillip is using this photo of President Obama in a video for his campaign to unseat Democrat-turned-Republican Rep. Parker Griffith:

Hmm, wonder why he didn’t use the original non-photoshopped picture?

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.

Hey Les – you lie! 😉
