That's some horseshiat.

His noblisse oblige knows no bounds.

That's one uppity negro.

Thankfully the janitor had plenty of hand sanitizer available following the meeting.

Anyone want to bet that Cheney never even noticed the janitor?
 
2010-04-12 05:13:39 PM  
you know who else liked to fistbump? Not Hitler. well maybe Hitler did, but I mean Canseco and McGwire. and they both were on Steroids. So, I dont think its much of a stretch to assume Obama is a roider. It makes sense. How else do you explain him winning the election? He cheated. what was I talking about?

Never should have replaced the Electoral College with a home run contest. McCain never stood a chance.

Looks to me like the janitor won't even touch a black man unless he's wearing gloves. Typical.
 
2010-04-12 06:01:45 PM  
I am sorry I voted for him.

Wonder Twins Activate!

Form of a janitor.

That's a cool picture. I bet it's sitting in that guy's living room right now.

FTA: The photo was taken on Dec. 3, 2009

It was a Christmas Terrorist Fist-Bump!!!

Poor man is going to turn into a socialist atheist Muslim now. Thanks, Obama.
 
2010-04-12 07:46:06 PM  
Clearly terrorists have infiltrated the White House janitorial staff, and Obama was expressing his solidarity with his fellow in the movement.
 
2010-04-12 07:48:24 PM  
IMPEACH!

he was wearing gloves, he'll be okay. Now if he touched someone else w/ his gloved hand after terrorist fist-bumping w/ Obama, may the lord have mercy on their soul.

It's still flu season, people.

WHERE IS HANDSHAKE OBAMA WHARE
 
2010-04-12 08:26:49 PM  
I can't believe he even touched him. How does he know where Obama's fist has been. I mean, he was just in Prague last week and he probably hasn't even washed it.
 
2010-04-12 08:57:19 PM  
I heard he also told him to "fark off and get busy owning the means of production, yo."
 
2010-04-12 09:06:10 PM  
This guy works at a job which requires him to protect his hands from direct contact from certain materials.

But Obama's a dick for not grabbing on to that hand with his own gloveless hands. Gotcha.

Anything short of licking the man's palms repeatedly is clearly elitist and disrespectful.

/yes, I recognize a dumbass troll headline (thanks Admins!) when I see one
//but you know some fkn teabagger out there is genuinely outraged by this.
 
2010-04-12 09:07:47 PM  
WTF is this guy's problem?

wow.
this retarded nonsense was greenlit?


Just when I think the greenlights can't get any lower, the modmins prove me wrong.
 
2010-04-12 09:19:36 PM  
Just showin' the hired help who has the bigger... fist.

I don't mind the ones that are kind of clever or jokey, but I hate the ones that just blatantly lie in the headline.

See, I am unable to detect that fine line between actual retard teabaggery, and mocking of said retard teabaggary. So I just assume all of them are mocking. Fark is great fun that way.

Abe Simpson.. that you?
haha!

I'm not a big Obama fan but I have to give the man credit, he did fist bump the janitor while he was still wearing gloves. Dirty janitor gloves.
 
2010-04-12 09:55:30 PM  
The janitor is obviously ashamed of his sixth finger.

Oh... so that's my problem. I don't have a sense of humor.
And here I thought it was that this headline was so painfully moronic and unfunny it makes Dane Cook look like George Carlin.
 
2010-04-12 10:41:50 PM  
The worst part about this entire episode is that this was actually Obama signaling to the death panels that this particular mutant has an exemption (so long as he remains productive).

Who cares if it's funny or not? It's obviously a joke, and you're biatching about it in two posts now. Fark Politics tab is serious business.

Now THAT is how you double reverse troll a headline.

I think the real problem here is that there are so many Palin-Americans out there now that it's not only possible, but it's practically a guarantee that there are people out there that would look at that picture and think the headline is the truth.
 
2010-04-12 10:57:25 PM  
Oh, what's the matter, Bartok Horseradish Obstetrician? Afraid to make contact with a REAL AMERICAN in case his work ethic sullies your ELITIST skin?
 
2010-04-12 10:58:27 PM  
That photo was not staged at all, and clearly shows how down-to-earth Obama is. My opinion of him is now changed, and suddenly I am okay with him taking my money and giving it to other people.

He touched the Europeans with that hand, he's openly transmitting the gay.

Good to know. See everybody? The power of positive thought really does work miracles.

Thanks for sharing this, it was heartwarming.

GWLush: I am sorry I voted for him.


Based off recent polls, so is about 8% of the rest of America.
 
2010-04-12 11:01:33 PM  
What's with the made up, absurd RW subject lines?

Those little Obma Derangement Syndrome people look mighty desperate. Big surprise.
 
2010-04-12 11:02:13 PM  
That's got to be the best troll headline I've seen in the politics tab.
 
2010-04-12 11:03:50 PM  
The headline's a joke, people. For farks sake. You don't have to come in here and have a seizure over it.
