    This stuff doesn't actually bother me. What does bother me is if I or someone else had done this same crap during the DNC convention we would be labelled as trolls and you would demand that the thread be closed.

    Hypocracy at its finest.

    I don't think it was intended to "bother" you, Leo. It's humour, you know, a luagh. We'll never know the answer to your paranoid speculation as no-one had the imagination to do this with pics from the DNC. Go figure.

    We interrupt this thread for a "lighten up" commentary:

    I did check with Mr. Anderson about politically-themed "Caption This" threads, and there didn't seem to be a problem. I and other people have done this type of thread in other forums without incident.

    In my view, we need to keep a sense of humor about these things. Politics is so nasty nowadays, we've got to laugh every once in a while to relieve the tension. Granted, I'm having fun at the expense of the GOP here, but that doesn't mean someone else can't do the same with Kerry. (Heck, I laughed at that "This Land" cartoon that compared Kerry to Herman Munster.)

    Hey, it makes for better threads than that Swift Boat stuff. At least this is honestly bogus. ;)

    We now return you to our regularly-scheduled program.

    Edit: on similar lines, doesn't that photo beg to have Steve Balmer's head inserted between his arms? ;)

    True. Better to parody a tragedy... makes it more tolerable. ;)

    OK, I am apologizing for that one. Shouldn't kick people when they're down...

    To me, the bottom photo evokes images of Pink Floyd's The Wall.

    Imagine a crowd cheering: "HAMMER, HAMMER, HAMMER, HAMMER"
