With all the attention lately on doctored and staged photos of events in Lebanon being run by supposedly world-wide media organizations, I guess it’s only fair to point out a bit of buffoonery on GOP.com. When first published, this image has what appears to be a shadow that looks suspiciously like Adolf Hitler’s mustache on the ever-popular Howard Dean. Later, the image was changed. I’ve set up this nifty little switcheroo to allow you to compare the current version to the “mustachioed” version:
For the record, though I’d hesitate to compare this sort of political, errr, gamesmanship on a political party’s homepage with the outright deceptions published by major media outlets, this is really pretty stupid. Also, even though I doubt many Republicans have any sympathy for Nazi comparisons, it’s still a low blow. Don’t sink down to the level of so many spineless hacks or you might get mistaken for one yourself.
