I guess when all you eat for months on end is elephant ears and nitrate-sicles it could cloud your judgement:

In Roseto, Pa., a carnival company closed down a shooter game called “Alien Attack,” after complaints and news stories that President Obama was one of the targets.

The black “alien leader” is holding a scroll titled “Health Bill” and wearing a presidential seal belt buckle. He also has antennae and a troll doll with a KISS T-shirt on his shoulder.

The owner of the carnival company, Goodtime Amusements, dismissed a complaint, saying the figure is not meant to be Obama.

After drawing more attention from the press, however, Good shut down the game and apologized.
[...]
A spokesman for the Secret Service says they’ve spoken with Good and that they’ll take “whatever action is appropriate.”

At first it didn’t occur to me that it was supposed to be Obama, because there’s not a teleprompter, golf club, dingbat from The View, a visibly aroused Chris Matthews or Oprah anywhere in the scene.

    Just think how giddy and mean spirited the media would be if it was Sarah Palin? Bristol Palin? Piper Palin? Michelle Bachman? Michelle Malkin? Laura Ingram? Ann Coulter? Need I go on? Ya know how much they hate conservative women!
