Ah yes, the White House actually dared folks to ‘shop the picture; Grokster Susan has one here that speaks to the serious side of what Obama is trying to do (and it isn’t just the Second Amendment). *I* think, given his absolute personal disdain for guns and those that own them, this does a better job of “capturing the moment” of a stupid idea to show Obama as “just a regular guy – just with commonsense ideas of removing something else from your life so you don’t have to worry about”.
Yes indeedy – a Michael Dukakis moment. Problem is, however, is that the only way he’d be embarrassed by it would be for someone asking him to autograph it….heh!

Oh trust me, White House Typist, this in NO ways “suggests approval or endorsement of the President”. Love the ears, though….
