Funny pic of Chimp trying to work the room...
Doing his usual "folksy" sales pitch, but the crowd looks either bored or even a little sickened.

4. Dunno...
...but the one on the right looks like she's had just about enough of him, while the one on the left is the only one in the whole crowd who actually looks like she is paying attention to him.

Twins with opposite personalities? ;)

5. Good gravy! They're reduced to cloning supporters for Bush
They could at least do their hair differently so that the clones aren't too obvious.

9. Didn't Chimpy get caught photoshopping "supporters" before?
Here's a Kos reference to it in discussion of the Schundler fraud...but I can't find the details...

24. Not sure...
...I know he faked a photo in "Boxgate." It's a funny story if you haven't heard it before. You should read the links:

25. Now that you mention that....
I do remember the taped over boxes...

I also remember pResident Weaksuck visited a plant in Ohio to brag about how well the economy was doing...the week before the plant owner announced he was shutting it down and moving it to China...

But it sure seems to me he got caught photoshopping a happy crowd for a "news photo" by duplicating a handful of suckers....and that he got caught at it....altrhough I can't remember the exact details.

28. Now that you described it in detail...
...I do remember it.

It was a shot of him in front of what looked like a large crowd of the troops, but it was actually a group of about five people in uniform in sort of a square or diamond formation, repeated over and over.

I could have sworn I saw it in an old "Top 10 Idiots," but I couldn't find it when I searched the archive.

29. I was sureI remembered that!
Maybe somebody else can give us a link.....

"it was actually a group of about five people in uniform in sort of a square or diamond formation"
And there were circles around each showing how it was duped....

6. I cannot watch him anymore.
It's unnatural. Like bestiality. This man in the role of President of the United States is like human beings having sex with animals. Just. Not. Natural.

14. You call this look "Folksy"?
He looks evil and sinister to me. They ought to call this: Maniacal Idiot Drunk With Perceived Power.

Course, I could be wrong... he's probably just drunk on the bottle of Johnny Walker hidden in the podium.

18. Well, I pointedly put "folksy" in quotes...
...in this pic, he looks like a sleazy salesman to me. Trying too hard to make a sale and not winning over the marks.

15. That photo doesn't look right
It looks fake. Those people are all in the same exact poses. All of them. As if they've been instructed to sit exactly and precisely in the same position.

20. Fake? You mean, even more fake than his photo-ops usually are?

21. I don't think you faked it at all.
It's either fake or those people were FORCED to be there. Look at them.

27. it seems fake to me
maybe done to present "diversity" or maybe to fill empty seats? Yeah, a photoshop job.

ANYWAY WHERE was this photo taken, and in connection with what story?

Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 04:50 PM by marions ghost
talk about overuse of the clone tool...

I guess there needs to be a law against serial replication of one's image for propaganda purposes...

I didn't realize how common this is, not that it surprises me.

I wish we DID have a clone army to send up to Washington to stand in for us--fill the mall with 'em....
