ABC’s Denver affiliate KMGH offered a good lesson for anybody aspiring to a career in local news graphics and production: Always double check to make sure you’re not accidentally using a Photoshopped version:

allin

The real book title is of course “All In.” Contrary to the rumor going around, the movie version will not be entitled “Full Metal Ejaculate”:

Related Update: Paula Broadwell’s driver’s license has been found in Washington DC’s Rock Creek Park. The name of that park might sound familiar.

It could be nothing. Broadwell was a runner, and a runner found the license on a running path — makes sense that she could have lost it during a jog. But as bizarre as this story’s getting I wouldn’t count on the explanation being nearly that simple.

    Ah yes…the all knowing media strikes again. Remember this the next time the media lectures somebody else (think Lauer, Stephonopolous, et al). If we wanted lectures from idiots, we'd rather build a time machine, go back to the University of Chicago when Obama was an adjunct there, and then sit in on one of his classes.

    It sounds like some in you endo to me.

    I saw that and couldn't help but laugh. Makes me wonder was it really a mistake or not.

  4. Granny55 on November 13th, 2012 7:29 pm

    Denver – Haha – it was no mistake. Those libs there think this is cute and appropriate.

  5. jeffythequick on November 13th, 2012 7:59 pm

    heh… I thought the title, "All In" was funny enough, with the news that is out there now.

    I think this one is too clever by half.

    Now, the funny part is how lame that doctored title is, and how they got caught doing it changing the title.

    Great News!

    Former choirboy and marital stalwart, Newt Gingrich, comes to the defense of Gen. Petraeus!

    DC`s "Rock Creek Park" has been a crime scene on NCIS several times; one of my fave TV shows.

  8. SignPainterGuy on November 13th, 2012 8:11 pm

    From the "Photoshopped version" link: It appears their is no trace of the photoshop outside the ABC affiliate studio, so someone there obviously used co. equip. to play around; no doubt demonstrating his maturity level. I would expect him to be on fun-employment soon !

    No kidding. Are these guys doing blow in the backroom or WHAT? How juvenile. I guess given she's in some way associated w/ a conservative male, and no mention is made of her politics outside the bedroom, the normal Progressive protocol for attacking conservative women still apply.

  10. Truesoldier__ on November 13th, 2012 8:38 pm

    I don't know, in this topsy turvy time we live in they may end up with a promotion.

  11. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 8:40 pm

    I'm sure, given his predispositions, he should have no problem finding use for his 'talents' in Cali's p0rn valley.

  12. Truesoldier__ on November 13th, 2012 8:41 pm

    I am sure Petraeus is soooooo thrilled with that kind of help. Next thing you know Bill Clinton will be showing up to defend Petraeus.

    But he might be required to buy some condominiums.

    “But as bizarre as this story’s getting I WOULDN’T count on the explanation being… NEARLY THAT SIMPLE.”

    Not unrelated is Gen. John Allen.

    Looks like zero is purging the top military commanders that might lead the opposition to his efforts before the big event.

  15. Truesoldier__ on November 13th, 2012 9:16 pm

    On a more serious note, It appears that they have found Paula Broadwell's NC drivers license in Rock Creek Park. They are not saying how it got there or anything, but Rock Creek Park is infamous in regards to another DC scandal….Remember Chandra Levy? This was the same park her remains were found in.

    O/T…But glad to see at least one company is taking the fights to the unions. Hostess has decided to close bakeries in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati due to the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union going on strike Nov. 9 to protest cuts to wages and benefits under a new contract offer, which the union rejected in September.

    Bet they didn't think Hostess (based in Irving, TX) would carry through with the threat and now 627 employees of the three factories are unemployed.

    I really appreciate seeing companies standing up to unions; letting them experience the consequences of their actions !

    I`ll say it again; unions have long ago outlived their usefulness AND their welcome ! Now let that union`s rank and file eat their mgt. !

  18. archer on November 13th, 2012 9:37 pm

    Conservatives need to somehow support Hostess.

  19. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 9:40 pm

    Isn't the same bakery that makes "Zingers"?

    As in; Bah-ZING! Oh damn, this is just getting to be too much. Obamarcos' pResidency is falling apart fast than you can say Saul Alinsky.

  20. archer on November 13th, 2012 9:43 pm

    Get out there and buy those Twinkies.
    Add a pound.
    Help fight the unions.

  21. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 9:45 pm

    That or we're seeing a total Black Swan event that's spiraling out of control? Ferdinand Obama has held off the natural order of things for over 6 years. Suspending all the normal rules that hold our ( or any ) society together.

    Gravity, inertia, procreation and every economic LAW imaginable have been stood on their EAR. Now they are ( of their own accord ) SNAPPING back to the mean and biting Ozero dead in the bahoonus in the process.

    Every day the Earth does not reverse its normal rotation should be construed as (1) natural law that's remained a constant. A good start to the day! After that, everything is in play!

  22. archer on November 13th, 2012 9:47 pm

    Give them to the guy in the center divider with the cardboard sign at the stoplight.

  23. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 9:48 pm

    Zingers®.
    The Treat That Loves To Lay It On Thick.

    With a name like Zingers, you might be wondering about this treat’s intentions. But the truth is, Zingers are quite the sweethearts. And once you get to know their moist cake, creme filling and thick layer of icing, you’ll see that Zingers don’t hold back when it comes to treating you right.

    Uh YEAH-uh…!

  24. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 9:54 pm

    Well, like 90% of MM's hatemail, it all has obvious s_xual overtones to it. After (1) particularly personal and *offensive* attack, Michelle finally said;

    "Well I guess WE know what YOU do all day..?"

    None of us need defend or condone what this woman did to know her being treated like this by the media is just plain wrong.

  25. backwoodsconsr on November 13th, 2012 9:57 pm

    Such sweet charity!

  26. archer on November 13th, 2012 9:58 pm

    We could understand your reluctance if you were asked to help by buying broccoli crowns, rutabagas, or asparagus – gag me with a spoon.

    But, Twinkies??

  27. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 10:04 pm

    Yeah, E'F the tree bark & grass clippings Meanchelle, and BUST on them Zingers!

    Guard PT is like 11 mos. off so I figure I can get on the Bah-Zingers Bandwagon for a GOOD long while..!

    You know, this.., awkward, diametrically OPPOSED position between employees and employers was BOUND to go kah-flooey at some point? At least now it's out in the open.

  28. Truesoldier__ on November 13th, 2012 10:17 pm

    "But as bizarre as this story’s getting I wouldn’t count on the explanation being nearly that simple."

    If she didn't just happen to drop it in the park, then it would appear as if someone is sending her a message.

  29. archer on November 13th, 2012 10:44 pm

    Yeah, me too. No exorcise planed until spring now. Break out the loose-fitting winter clothes and winter foods and pack it on. Hey, pass me the red taters, the gravy, and the meat pies and leave the grazing to the WH.

  30. Marshall_Will on November 13th, 2012 10:59 pm

    Um… really was never my intent but after Debacle 2012, I imagine all bets are off for us in many regards. My experience has been, even "taking a few weeks off" can create a fitness "plateau" where all your goals are on the other SIDE of it! ( Let alone a few MONTHS )

    One of MM's posters mentioned that by staying IN the workforce, or for so long as you CAN, you make yourself a much harder target for Progressives looking to do nothing but exploit your now dependent state of affairs. Not to say that can't happen if you're working but..?

    I felt the same way about HC. If you work hard at staying fit, who CARES what laws they 'pass' until we can regain control? But after THIS, hardly seems to matter.

    Journalism degree – the new bestest toy in the Cracker Jack box!

  32. jeffythequick on November 14th, 2012 1:13 pm

    I don't think Frito-Lay would give away something so worthless in a box.
