Truth and Justice Watch: Where Barack Obama Began and Osama bin Laden Ended

 

signcomp1

Over the past week, we’ve discovered where Barack Obama began (we have his long-form birth certificate) and Osama bin Laden ended (with Barack Obama).

This is an irony that shouldn’t escape us, for it has long been a Republican strategy to blur lines between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden (where one begins and the other ends).   

Here, for example, is a 2008 mailer that was distributed by the Republican Party in Virginia:

Notice the Photoshop effects here. The familiar image of Osama bin Laden looking to his right has been cropped to remove the large nose and beard.

Then the color of the skin has been darkened.

And then, apparently, the eyes of Obama have been meshed to match Bin Laden’s, so that it is difficult to figure out where Obama begins and Bin Laden ends.

But the gods have smiled a bit of truth and justice on our president: over the past week we received evidence that should satisfy any reasonable person concerning where Barack Obama began and where Osama bin Laden ended.
