Meet Ace, the Skeet-Truther

In response to So What Was Obama's Skeet Score?:

 Oh Ace, Ace, Ace - an intervention may be in order, here.

Dick Polman of Newsworks has a word or two to say about your wing-nuttiness.

The skeet shooter truthers are probably the mutant spawn of the birthers, and they'll probably morph anew once the current wingnuttiness wanes. But let's check them out anyway, if only to satiate our craving for black comedy.

It all began when President Obama told The New Republic magazine that, "yes," he has indeed fired a gun (like all accredited red-blooded Americans), and that "up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time . . . oftentimes, guests of mine go up there." And alarm bells instantly clanged among the practitioners of the paranoid style - to wit, Republican congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, a founder of skeet trutherism: "If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos?"

The Obama team stayed silent for a few days, apparently assuming that the skeet truthers would surgically remove their fingers from their laptops, doff their pajamas, and get a life. Dream on, Obama team. So finally, over the weekend, it decided to release a photo of the president shooting clay pigeons, on his birthday last August. OK, wingnuts? Satisfied now?

No, by God. Let's see the scores.
