Take it down a notch

I feel bad for Obama. Aside from the fact that the US is a giant clusterfuck right now, the guy cannot catch a break. I feel like every week I hear about some DISASTROUS thing that he's done. There was that whole Special Olympics joke on Leno and then hugging the Queen of England (NO!)? Or was that Michelle? I don't know, I just cannot get over how sensitive people are. The latest atrocious thing that he's done is killed a fly... So PETA is of course stepping in and is quoted as saying:
“We support compassion for the even the smallest animals," says Bruce Friedrich, VP for Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt."
Friedrich says PETA supports "brushing flies away rather than killing them" and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.
I'm all for humane treatment of animals (unless its Bruiser and he poops on the carpet) but come ON. Go back to throwing fake blood on fur wearers.

uh oh- I guess I am a animal killer now too. I didn't know fly counted in the same category as dogs. oops

Yeah I saw this and rolled my eyes. Apparently the PETA people aren't working hard enough if they're freaking out about this. Lame-o.
