I don't know which is more hilarious, Ned's photoshops or the Vulcan reaction to Ned's photoshops, or is that racist?

Ya, I guess we've never heard of Christians doing anything stupid and irrational in the name of God. Those clinic bombings only killed a couple people. Haven't heard much from you Rich Tool. Good to see that you're towing the company line. Kudos.

Islam is exactly as great as every other religion.
So, technically, Clinton was right, although I agree that we shouldn't be tolerant of superstitious nonsense no matter what the source.
That was your point, right, Rich?

It seems to me that the image on this thread is obviously photoshopped. The intent is to have a laugh. Some won't find it funny, some will.

What's that they say about those who can't take a joke?

I might think it was funny if someone could explain why it's supposed to be. Still seems like a pretty innocuous picture to me, fake or not.

Waggy, no need to over-analyze great art. Just sit back and appreciate it.

Oh, I get it now. It's funny because it shows Ned's desperation.

I must confess that I've posted this photo(shopped) pic before:

Hope this doesn't get JfH too hot and bothered.

Guilty as charged. I was duped by the libs that run Google image search.

But where would Hank go if he couldn't post here? His cushy pension only affords so many exotic vacations and craft beer quaffing.

Speaking of funny, I am constantly amused by PJ's selective outrage and consistent spin. Is it just spin or is it lies? Wonder if pj is asking that he be punished or if only those that he disagrees with should be?

Good 'ol pj has been trying to get people banned since day one. He must be mistaking TDPF with the Harvard Business Review or something.

My boy's always been one to play with scissors and make silly collages of random images. He showed such aptitude early on, writing letters to the neighbors with snippets from the Pioneer Press. He was always so sympathetic, writing to them about their missing cats! Neddy's always been an animal lover.

I'll always help search for a missing pussy. It helps when the forest isn't so dense and overgrown.

Nice try, but you can't really call a photo shopped picture a "disagreement". Either it's real or it isn't. Fact or fiction. In this case, fiction. Ned Flanders is welcome to his opinion that Obama is somehow responsible for lax security at an embassy in Libya, ludicrous as I may find that opinion, but he is not entitled to the opinion that a fake photo is actually real. It's not.

And Jason's assertion that the picture is obviously photo shopped is pretty questionable. Wags didn't realize it. I would guess a few lurkers didn't realize it. I think that using the Daily Page as a vehicle to spread disinformation is shameful and shouldn't be allowed. I understand that sometimes it's difficult to separate facts and opinions, but in the case of a doctored photo, the case is pretty clear.

Despite fairly strong disagreements with Arturo, John Henry and Dangerousman, I don't believe I ever suggested that any of them be punished for their posts. But Dangerousman doesn't come on here claiming that Obama introduced legislation banning all guns, he simply drones on and on about his love of guns. I think that's strange, possibly unhealthy, but Dangerousman is welcome to his opinion.

And my outrage isn't nearly as selective as you think. As for spin, I think you use that term to describe anything you disagree with.
