Did I miss something?
Is there something political in the humor?
There is a political implication that Obama supporters are mindless fanboys in a way. Like 13 year old girls at a Bieber concert. It's certainly a slam against the left so I can see how thinned skinned people would take offense. It could also be that oranator is offended at the innacuracy of the picture. That's really not a typical Obama supporter. He's wearing a suit, so it would appear he has a job.
the picture would really be better without the filename. Kinda in a gray area for the picture thread. Lets be honest though. Politics is part of life and with something goofy like that it deserve a place in the humor thread. then again politcal seasons bring hypersensitivity. We've all seen the photos of bush/obama holding the phone backwards. that photo would be completely acceptable in the summer of a non election year. Yet if i were to post that now, I'm sure I'f be responded to with big colored font to move it somewhere else.
