Obama enjoys killing

POLITICO (Washington) - The president has been getting lots of kudos for a lightning-fast, Mr. Miyagi-worthy swipe he employed to slay a pesky house fly that was buzzing him in mid-interview during a taping with CNBC that aired Wednesday.


"He stopped the interview to track and kill the fly," said talk show host Conan O'Brien.


"That's some pretty impressive hand-eye coordination right there," Jimmy Fallon gushed. "Makes Obama look like a bad ass."


But now People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, calling it an "execution," wants the commander-in-chief to show a little more compassion to even "the least sympathetic animals."


"Believe it or not, we've actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA's official response to the executive insect execution," a blog on the group's website explained. "In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."


The group has sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside.


"We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Freidrich explained.


The fly saga began Tuesday, and it was the subject of a news report on Italian TV and almost a dozen Youtube postings that have been viewed more than 750,000 times. Thousands of people also have added commentary, including one who wrote, "But can he duck a shoe?" in reference to a hugely popular video of former president George Bush ducking a shoe thrown at him by an Iraqi cameraman during a news conference in Baghdad.


"Get out of here," Obama said as the fly buzzed him during his interview. The pest persisted, and when it landed on his left forearm, Obama smacked it.


"Now, where were we?" the president said without missing a beat. Pleased with himself, he added, "That was pretty impressive, wasn't it? I got the sucker."


Several observers in the room gave congratulatory shout-outs. Obama pointed to the floor and instructed an obliging cameraman to get a close-up of the corpse.


"It's like he's got one of those fly Terminator targeting systems in his eyes," said an awed Jon Stewart.

What incredible non-news. Nobody cares about what PETA says anyways.

Is this real? It's like what The Onion would do, or something.


Worried about swatting a fly? Fly abuse, oh noes? Oh PETA....have a grand old time going after all the fly-swatter companies. *snicker*

Funny you would say that. I posted this in another forum, and the first reply was

I swear, my first reaction was to check if The Onion posted the article.

I'm just glad PETA show themselves as what they are: humourless halfwits. I still remember that bit about the noble lobster.

I think PETA's HQ should be filled with hungry lions. I wonder if those PETA people would fight the lions back.


They actually force their pets to be vegan too : http://www.peta.org/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=19644



Isn't forcing a carnivore to be vegan animal cruelty?

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

Little did those reporters know that that fly was in fact North Korean espionage microtechnology.

Actually... Jon Stewart admitted it was the Daily Shows secret spy.


As to the shoe question, Obama could probably jump OVER the shoe that was tossed at him.

Victor of the 5 year fan fic competition!


Kevin Butler will awesome your face off.

That's PETA for you. Don't these people have something more important to do with their lives. It was a very funny video, though.

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.
