Is President Obama a Republican?

In Reuters story,  Obama pardons holiday turkeys, a photo appears with the caption, “U.S. President Barack Obama (R) watches as his daughter Malia pets the 2011 Thanksgiving Turkey, Liberty”

Now at first glance, we thought Reuters had made a grave mistake.  We checked our calender and it clearly was not April 1st, it was in fact November 24th, and we knew Obama hadn’t changed his political affiliation overnight. (We keep our eye on such things)

So how could Reuters place an (R) after the Presidents Name?  Well, take a look at the photo and you will see that Obama is the one who is standing to the (Right) of the Turkey.  Oh, we all needed some editor to tell us Obama is the one on the right!

We fixed the photo up and changed the caption.  Hopefully Reuters will see this is all in fun. Next time, we think that one would just add (Right) instead of (R) next to any Liberal.  Better Yet, let folks figure out who is the President and who is the Turkey.
