Tea Party Credo: "If you can't reform your image, Photoshop it!"

Last week I posted on one of the Tea Party leaders and a "Man of Faith", Dale Robertson, who has some serious messaging issues to deal with, as you can see here:



It appears that Robertson has decided to reform his image in the only way he knows how:
When you're a Tea Party activist and you've been caught holding a racist sign that refers to taxpayers as the "n" word, maybe it's better to just leave the whole subject alone.


Dale Robertson seems to disagree. Over the weekend, the Houston-based Tea Party leader posted the photo of himself at a rally last year that you can see [here].


Notice something strange about the words on that sign Robertson is holding? That's because it's a (very poorly) photoshopped image. In the real photo, Robertson's sign bears a very different message.
If only all idiotic comments were so easily (air)brushed aside? The GOP could just make a photo like this one:


MAY 1, 2003:
Mission Accomplished

"My fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended."
-Bush, 5/1/03


 And declare the Bush years a rousing success...

What? You think people might notice?

Good grief. You'd think he would have bothered to do a half-decent photoshop job.

That is why I went out of my way to do a crappy job on the Bush image. I may not be as good at as some of the other people doing this stuff on the net but that one of Robertson is pitiful. I tried to emulate his style a little. Only thing missing is some duct tape. :)
