    It must suck to have someone pointing a camera at you 24/7 [​IMG]

    Before this gets locked as an obvious bit of political humor, which has already drawn political replies, I think I should at least add a link showing that shot, similar pictures of Bill Clinton, and a perfectly reasonable explanation for both.

    Thank you Joseph. I'm sure you can find a number of pictures of anyone famous doing something stupid because they are on camera 24/7. The thing is, the picture doesnt tell the whole story. I seriously doubt ANYONE would pick up a pair of binoculars with the lens caps on and actually think they were broken. But, I bet we have all looked through a camera, telescope, binaculers, whatever BEFORE taking the lens cap off. If someone gets a picture of you doing it, does that make you an idiot?

    Who said anything political???? Sheesh, so we can't poke a little fun at anybody, our president included? Take a look at all those Michael Jackson threads. There is nothing political about the replies that I see. There is a blurb about night vision goggles (mine) and a blurb about Stealth Technology. Where's the politics in that?

    I think Bill Clinton's picture is funny too, is that political?

    Its the fact that the whole thread is basically saying look at how stupid our president is. Some people who like the president are going to be offended by that and since the president is inherently political.... Jacko is inherently non-political, so someone would have to actually say something directly political. In this thread, the whole flavor is politicial.

    In an extremely non-political way I find it very funny.
    I would find it just as funny as if anyone looked that silly.

    I think that movie "Journeys with George" on HBO says it all. You have a planeload of reporters following candidates around to staged photo ops at 2:30 am, what do you expect. When you get to be president it must muliply in planeloads.

    I watched a documentary on Chaplin and Hitler and one of Hitlers inner circle said he thought that Hitler laughed even when Chaplin made fun of him. This is hard to believe; but I think Bush would have laughed milk out his nose on this one... or Clinton when he saw the other picture

    I tell ya, if I were president, I would be doing slapstick like this all the time on purpose.. just to drive the press wild.... then I probably would be assasinated.

    Hang on a second... Quayle actually believed we had dogs, cats, chickens and the Eieffel Tower on the firing range? Clever..... Very clever.
