Campaign foto fun pak!

Hey, kids! Tired of fretting over the presidential race? Me too! Ready for some fun with campaign photos? I thought so!

Which of these photos from the campaign are real? And which ones are fake? Can you tell the difference?

1. (a) Is this a real photo of Barack Obama’s family? 1. (b) And are they really a bunch of prisoners, crack addicts and gay porn stars, as the caption suggests? What do you think?

2. Was this “hockey mama for Obama” really one of dozens of Alaskan women who came to protest at a Palin rally?

3. Did John McCain really make an appearance in a supermarket cheese aisle while Barack Obama wowed thousands in Berlin?!

4. Did Barack Obama really use this phone upside-down? What a dork!

5. Did Piper Palin really flip off that little boy in the red shirt at a campaign event?!

6. Did Barack Obama really fail to place his hand over his heart during the National Anthem? And is he really eight feet tall compared to Hillary Clinton?

7. Did John McCain really ride in a golf cart with George Bush senior, looking even older than the former president?

Time for your guesses! Answers to come!

    i was thinking the other day what a funny “in living color” (remember that show?) sketch the obama “move in” to the white house could be.

    once he wins he goes all ghetto fabulous with velvet suits and pimp hats and shit like that.

    comes rollin’ up to the inauguration in a big green lincoln! has al sharpton give the invocation.

    just totally bitch slaps whitey.

    wouldn’t that be funny?

  2. If you Google for Washeteria Obama, you get some interesting hits.

  3. Dave says:

    1, 5, and 6 are fake. The rest real.

    Photographs always lie. Like politicians.

  4. LP says:

    3: BONK! Sorry, Mr. Barber. Please try again.

  5. Dave says:

    Well, whaddya mean “fake”?

  6. LP says:

    Fake = photoshopped or otherwise altered.

  7. Dave says:

    What fooled me about 1 was the captions and the halo around Obama.

  8. LP says:

    Okay, the halo was added, and the captions are false. But the picture is apparently real, and does include members of Obama’s family.

  9. swells says:

    I think they’re all real, with the only fakery being the captions on #1. I mean, a black guy being labeled “U.S. Senator”? Come on!

  10. Dave says:

    Yeah, my new guess is they’re all real. That Piper Palin is such a redneck.

  11. chad says:

    i vote all real

  12. LT says:

    …and a video guess: real or fake?

    p.s.: i really hope the one where Piper gives the bird is real.

  13. 12 — Palin just looks crestfallen in that clip. What happened — she found out they are losing?

  14. LP says:

    According to Snopes.com, source of all Truth on the Web, all the photos except 4 and 5 are real. Sorry, Piper’s not as perky as we’d hoped! And Obama never used a phone upside-down! But he really is 8 feet tall!

  15. he really is 8 feet tall

    And — sob! — unpatriotic.

  16. Dave says:

    But he’s got, like, thirty goddamn dicks.

  17. Kate the Great says:

    My guess? Two, Four, Five and Seven are real.

  18. Dave says:

    Kate, no fair looking at the answers!

  19. Kate the Great says:

    What, I got it right?

  20. Rogan says:

    You could have included some of the Palin in swimwear photos!

  21. Tim says:

    By “real” in the case of #1, does that mean that Pookie is indeed in jail, Nettie’s a crack addict, etc.?

    Comment 16 – LOL.

  22. LP says:

    21: See #8. And #9. See Spot run. Even Spot could run and beat McCain at this point.
