Photo Oops!

What Is It With Muslims And Airplanes (And New York City)?
President Barack Hussein Obama (who is not a Muslim) wanted a shot of a VC-25--the military variant of the Boeing 747 (more commonly referred to as Air Force One)--flying over New York City.

Rather than have his best and brightest PhotoShop something, his best and brightest arranged to have Air Force One fly low--really low--over New York City (with at least one F.16 apparently in pursuit). Oh, and White House Military Office Director, Louis Caldera, called everyone...except for Mayor Michael Bloomberg (and the thousands of people scared shitless by the sound of a low-flying jet over Manhattan.)

Instead of generating massive amounts of pride in their country, the flyover generated massive amounts of panic and cost scads in lost productivity.

For this incredible waste of taxpayer money (and the good will of the good citizens of New York City), The Lifeguard gives President Obama (and his personal douche) the "Dumbass of the Week" Award.

This nonsense cost the U.S. taxpayer a mere $328,000.00. All for a picture that will, in all likelihood, never be used.
