President Barack Obama
The White House released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting today. Of course this has put the right-wing blogosphere into a tizzy. They have criticized the President for everything from his form to stating that the photo is staged or Photoshopped. No matter what the President does it will be wrong to those on the right, so I don't know why he even tries to please them.

Of course none of this compares to the Republican reaction to President Obama warning Americans of the dangers of eating yellow snow during this week's radio address. Immediately after the address House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell held a press conference to announce the introduction a bill that would preserve the rights of Americans to eat yellow snow and to tout the health benefits of eating yellow snow. The Golden Retriever, Beagle, and Collie lobbyists appeared on stage behind Congressman Boehner and Senator McConnell with tails wagging which is being taken as a victory for their clients.

Shortly afterwards Rush Limbaugh went on the air and stated that conservatives across the southern states were up in arms about the socialist agenda that prevents snow from falling in the south, thus preventing southerners from enjoying yellow snow. The Drudge Report and have picked up the story and have posted videos of a janitor working at the USDA stating that, “Yes…no snow…in…the south…socialism.” It is unknown at this time if the video was manipulated in anyway.

I wish those on the right would just grow up. This kind of thing stopped being funny when I was about ten years old.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
