    So AOL.com has a story about an Obama effigy that was left hanging from a tree on the campus of a small college in Oregon. Pretty standard stuff -- except for the file photo of the college president that they ran with it:


    If this were a newspaper, somebody's ass would be on the unemployment line. Hopefully, AOL has similar standards.

    It is pretty ridiculous.

    EDIT: Oh, and the cutline reads ... Robin Baker, president of George Fox University, described himself as "disheartened and outraged" by the effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
