    Funny. All of reading that nonsense and the first thing we all saw was the right-handed error.

    You also missed my comment at the bottom. I was hoping to short-circuit a bunch of comments about Obama being left handed, but I guess it didn’t work.

    And just in case you were wondering, yes, Hitler was right handed.

    yup, the left handed thing was I came to comment about.
    The rest are just non-sense.

    Good thing you put that LH comment IK, because it looked like a hit squad was lining up on you.

  8. Yup, we *know* who is left handed, and we’re keeping track. That we are… 😉

    (And here I wasn’t going to comment, because I did catch the ps… but with such a lovely set of comments to comment on I just had to.)

    I assumed that the creator of these t-shirts was being purposely ironic. It is pretty common knowledge that Obama is left handed.

    Now I’m thinking I should buy (and wear) that specific shirt, just to see how many people fall for it.

    Oh, and I just found this in the FAQ for the t-shirt site:

    You doltful dunderpuss! Obama isn’t even right handed.
    Yes that is correct. Part of the joke for many of these shirts is that they are factually inaccurate: Obama was born in Hawaii not some scary far off land, Social Security is already a government program, gays already have the right to vote and Obama is left handed. “Grossly misinformed” was my watchword when designing these shirts.

    For the “Right Handed Like Hitler” shirt in particular I was just trying to convey the most general and useless way to compare someone to Hitler. I was thinking about using either “carbon based life form” or handedness. I checked to see if he was a righty or not and when I saw that he was a lefty I figured the joke worked better that way since A.) the vast majority of people are right handed, making it a pretty useless way to compare someone to Hitler since it applies to nearly everyone, and B.) in this case he’s actually part of the small minority that doesn’t fit the bill, making the comparison even more ill informed and foolish.

    Plus, the FAQ gets extra points for a great Star Trek reference.

    Ok, now that I go back and re-read the t-shirts and the explanation from their website, the more I feel like a total doltful dunderpuss.

    I assumed the “right-handed” comment regarding President Obama is intentional. The t-shirt is to illustrate and accentuate the pure, unadulterated ignorance of the Tea Partiers and their complete disregard and disrespect for facts.
