Tea Party Credo: "If you can't reform your image, Photoshop it!"
Last week I posted on one of the Tea Party leaders and a "Man of Faith", Dale Robertson, who has some serious messaging issues to deal with, as you can see here:
It appears that Robertson has decided to reform his image in the only way he knows how:
When you're a Tea Party activist and you've been caught
holding a racist sign that refers to taxpayers as the "n" word, maybe
it's better to just leave the whole subject alone.
Dale Robertson seems to disagree. Over the weekend, the Houston-based Tea Party leader posted the photo of himself at a rally last year that you can see [here].
Notice something strange about the words on that sign Robertson
is holding? That's because it's a (very poorly) photoshopped image. In
the real photo, Robertson's sign bears a very different message.
If only all idiotic comments were so easily (air)brushed aside? The GOP could just make a photo like this one:
MAY 1, 2003:
"My fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended."
And declare the Bush years a rousing success...
What? You think people might notice?
