Could this be turning into a discussion about exactly what violence is?
I have to agree with Joe it violates the principle. But I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is true that the picture isn't doctored, it's real. So, in a way we are exposing him for what he really is, a person who leads violence against the poor, the aging, the middle class, and oh yeah, LGBT people.
In the interest of keeping the question open, may I ask, if this very recent quote by Bush is considered violence,
"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a g*dda*mned piece of paper!"
