New York Slimes

I created these for Michelle Malkin's site, but they missed the cut:

I thought they were really good...but alas...

Extreme Makeover: Murtha Edition

Just catching up on some of my other photoshops, to have a historical record, if you will, of my faux psuedo genius. (click any image for a larger version)

Murtha as the enraged, mindless "Hulk", Doin' the Cut 'n Run:

This just struck me as funny:

Castro Sings: My Adidas

From FoxNews.com, via AP:

Cubans Welcome New Photos Showing Castro Bedridden, But Alive

HAVANA — Cubans welcomed new photographs showing Fidel Castro in an 80th birthday visit with his brother Raul and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez as evidence that their leader was alive and recovering — although visibly more mortal than ever.

Ahh, how lovely! Raul and Hugo paid a visit. I know there's nothing that makes my heart soar more than being visited by a dictator and a terrorist. But what's this? What is Communist Fidel Castro doing in the picture?

Sunday, August 13: Fidel Castro holds a copy of the Saturday Aug. 12, 2006 edition of Granma, the Communist Party newspaper.

Besides the fact that no one can verify if this I've pulled a Rueters here and fixed the headline to something more appropriate:

So how's that Communism thing working out for you Fidel? I guess "To each his need, from each his ability" or what was it? "To each his need, from each their life, and to me some new kicks!" more like it.

Did you know Fidel's Net worth hovers around $550,000,000?

Wow, I didn't realize Communism was so...Capitialistic.


The Granma (Cuba's state-run paper) had this to say:

AS he announced on Saturday at the launch of his presidential candidacy, Chávez came to Havana to celebrate Fidel’s 80th birthday with the Cuban president. Raúl received him at the airport and gave him the affectionate embrace of a people grateful to the friendly leader for his human grandeur and attitude of solidarity....

What kind of human being is this? What material is he made of? As you say, he is like the caguairán (hardwood tree)."
Friendly leader? Human grandeur? More like dellusions of grandeur.

There is one good thing about hardwood trees - they burn for a long, long time.

HotAir.com: Another Bogus Photo

Another Bogus Photo

Caption Fraud, Reuters Style

Sorry for the delay in posting this, the photo upload feature must be broken here at blogger.com

As I mentioned on HotAir.com today:

Why would Israelis waste missles on a lone station wagon on a deserted road? Doesn't seem like a strategic target to me. It's hard to say whether this is caption fraud by the Editorial Staff or the photographer.

Not only is windshield intact, there is no debris on the road, no tiremaks (was the car being driven in the ditch when it was "hit"?), no burn marks on the grass which is obviously bone dry.

There is no "exit wound" either. As a matter of fact, if you increase the contast on the photo, you can peer into the driver's compartment and see that there is nothing in there, other than what appears to be a cooler.

I used Paint Shop Pro to:

  • Increase sharpeness (the originally photo was softened, when the sharpness is increased you can see the dents in the hood)
  • Re-colorized for natural sunlight
  • Resized to 150%
In the second photo I increased the size by another 150%, and point to the "cooler":

Liberal Bias knows no borders.
