This Assassination Brought to You By The Gap

Some Bozo in Philly (callback!) threw a book at the President on Sunday, but never mind that. When we visited the Daily Mail website to filch the photo, strange blue targets appeared on Obama’s person. And then we saw it: They’re hotspots for a popup display advertising the clothes being worn. Stay classy, Fleet Street!

Update: Your questions answered! Or maybe not:

According to Secret Service spokesperson, Ed Donovan, the person involved was an overzealous author who just wanted to toss his book into the president’s reading list…

“A book isn’t considered a dangerous object so we’re not going to start prohibiting books or any inanimate objects,” he said. “The person threw a book on stage and our agents acted appropriately.”

But what book? We know, don’t reward the dude, but come on.

What do they mean, “Get the Look”? It’s a completely ordinary pair of slacks with a blue shirt! Who doesn’t have THAT look?

@Capt Howdy: I know I’d like to throw it at somebody.

Plus. is it just me or does our president look a little… um… darker than is usual in the pic? Or is that some iPad bug feature?

@Tommmcatt Thinks Masturbation Can Also Involve The Mainstream Media: It’s a completely ordinary pair of slacks with a blue shirt! That’s the genius of it. You can hardly tell he worships Satan.


There’s only one rule: progressive liberals are always checkmated.

@Capt Howdy: Post updated: The book was tossed by an “overzealous author”. Author and book remain unidentified.

@nojo: Pynchon. His books have become unreadable.

@nojo: Peter Parnell. And Tango Makes Three.
