6. Probably a strategic plan to get folks to stop talking about what McCain said yesterday...


Nov 21, 2012
GOP Senators Attack Obama, Praise Egyptian President In Statement On Gaza Ceasefire

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Egyptian Prime Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr today announced a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel, ending eight days of violence that resulted in nearly 150 dead and more wounded. President Obama dispatched Clinton to the region yesterday and the nation’s top diplomat traveled to Jerusalem and Cairo today to help facilitate the deal.

But in a statement on the Gaza ceasefire today, Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) — one day after intelligence officials debunked their attacks on the Obama administration over Benghazi — didn’t have any kind words for the president and his team. In fact, the new “Three Amigos” attacked Obama, saying there needs to be “smarter American leadership” in the Middle East.

They are trying to see if the one we have has finally gone past his expiration date.

24. Was something edited out? look at McCains left arm...right at the elbow...

the arm holding the turkey...looks like someone use a round clone brush...and removed something - but missed and got some of McCains elbow?

It should be round there - instead its concave.

Like there was something in the other hand of the head behind the tree...the one hand has a flag...

Perhaps the other hand was edited out? Why?

What's the black behind the tree-head?

It looks like they deleted the whole selection.

I wonder if the elbow edit was another hand - offering an obscene gesture...?

32. The black is just a trick of shadow

I enhanced the blacks to show all the detail that is there, not much but there's enough to see there's two tree shadows, one for the foreground tree crotch and the other for the tree past the deck and the man is wearing a light colored shirt.
