The great hunter stalks, attacks and kills a fly while on camera. Apparently it's a big enough deal for the network news to devote a couple minutes of prime time to it.

Meanwhile, people getting shot and rounded up in Iran over the election without much coverage....

The annoy-ted one does not deficate, his offel is a bounty, mana from Heaven.

Once he pisses on the Founding Documents and wipes his ass with them, we will know we are truly blessed.

Now, now...if Bush killed a fly on TV, we would be going nuts and we would be praising him.

No - if Bush killed a fly on TV if anything at all got reported it would be the PETA freaks going nuts about killing an innocent creature.

Not to poop in your cocoa puffs, but offal is (generally) discarded internal organs from butchered animals, not feces.


In the case of scrapple, it also happens to be delicious.

Wow. They REALLY are in love with him. All the little kids on my block thought my dad was a badass for doing the same thing with wasps when I was like 5. This sure is something, but Bush was a show off for landing on an aircraft carrier or chopping wood

Did the teleprompter tell him to do that or did he just wing it?

PETA Says No More Fly-Killing, Sends Obama a Humane Fly Catcher

June 17, 2009 10:55 PM

ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:

PETA has a few words for President Obama: Brush, don’t kill.

After the President very publically swatted and then killed a fly during an interview with CNBC yesterday, the outspoken animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said they wished Obama had served a better example.

“We support compassion for the even the smallest animals," says Bruce Friedrich, VP for Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt."

Friedrich says PETA supports "brushing flies away rather than killing them" and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.

This afternoon PETA sent a Katcha Bug, a device which traps bugs and allows their safe release back into nature to the White House.

PETA hopes the President will use the catcher but has no far not received communication back from the White House, although they did not ask for specific correspondence.

Friedrich admits that despite his fly-swatting ways, the President has been a champion for animal rights in the past. PETA claims to be pleased by Obama’s denouncement of factory farming, Canadian seal hunting andMichelle Obama’s stance against wearing fur.

It's totally BS that he even killed it. I watched the video and didn't see any fly. And he was moving both hands as he hit it. Flies don't sit on a moving hand.

And if you squish a fly, you wipe it off your hand!
