It’s only surprising that they didn’t Photoshop horns onto his head. Clearly what this calls for is some Photoshoppery of our own. Let’s get the mockery started!

Obama’s education speech: a quick one

Obama’s first big screwup

Everyone is bitching about Barack Obama’s ill-advised choice to ask pop-pastor Rick Warren to deliver the invocation at his inauguration. I agree. Bad move, bad choice, total pandering. Warren talks a moderate game, but his views are not basically less conservative than the more blustery evangelicals out there. Warren’s support of Proposition 8 (aka Proposition …
