    First Newsweek got a lot of play with using a crazy-looking Michelle Bachmann photo:

    Now there's this one:

    Note that it is from a British paper with different sensibilities to these things.

    Not unique, of course, but regrettable nonetheless.

    That's horrible, but it made me laugh my ass off...

    There are a few of Obama that have made the email rounds over the last three years that are almost as bad.

    It's pretty rare for anyone to look good while eating.

    And, that makes all of these events that political candidates attend, where they're offered a taste of the local specialty, treacherous.

    I can't figure out how to link it, but check out this picture:

    You can just see Bloomberg saying he's not going to make an idiot out of himself by trying to jam that in his mouth as is.

    In this case:

    His advance team must have done a better job, because he looks like a pro, and there's surely no sauerkraut on it.

    Seriously, if you're doing this shit, you better have a good advance team.

    Remember John Kerry fucking up his cheese steak order in Philadelphia?

    There are so many small details, and fucking one of them up can make you look like an idiot.

    Kerry was the poster child for doing things he should have known better than doing. The hunting photo, bouncing a first pitch, calling Lambeau Field "Lambert Field"

    Bachmann hasn't complained about the photos.

    And you are a douche, abbott. Grow up.

    I'm down with that.

    But Nazi "jokes" aren't funny.

    OK. All Nazi jokes are appropriate & should be encouraged.

    No one should take offense to any Nazi reference. It's just a terrific joke.

    Is that the standard you want?
