I may owe Jim Hoft an apology. It seems “skeetgate” may have started with … wait for it .. the New York Times.
Here’s their original headline on the skeet story:
And here’s what they changed it to after the White House released the photo of Obama shooting:
Yeesh. Remind me again how the internet killed journalism?
Anyway, for those harping on about President Obama’s shooting form, here’s a picture of my sister, taken about 10 years ago when she was visiting from California. We brought her along to a shooting party some friends of ours have in Kentucky every December. What’s in season in December, you may wonder? Mistletoe, of course!
So, who’s going to be the first wingnut to claim this picture is ‘shopped? My bet: Jim (Dim) Hoft, dumbest man on the internet. Once he gets finished critiquing the president’s form, of course. It’s true: if Obama were to walk on water, Republicans would whine about how he can’t swim. (Editor’s note: the Skeeters have arrived! Perhaps Jim Hoft is only the 22nd dumbest person on the internet!)
