Oh, please.

He wishes he were this awesome.

The funniest part of this is that someone had to photoshop Obama being awesome, but Sarah doesn't have to fake it...

Well its a fake AR, but we get the point.

Still don't you remember Obama having the sword fight on the front lawn of the White House...that was pretty awesome.

*snicker* Ok I'm kidding. If he wasn't the president he would have likely gotten a wedgie for that one.

Breda said...

There's video of Sarah shooting that rifle.

and it is bad firearm handling, if you click on the photo her finger is in the trigger guard.

Still a nice photo though

Breda said...

Ok, I looked it up - it's a rifle simulator.

Linda said...

The most awesome would be Obama's back as he left the White House forever.

Most likely either FATS or EST 2000 simulator. There's an electronic optic thingy (technical term, I swear) in the barrel, and the cables are for pneumatic and electrical signals.
It's basically a giant first-person shooter...but where else can you sink a cargo ship in a box canyon with an AT-4?

Kevin...... I believe the picture was taken as she was using the "firearm", therefore, it is not a bad thing she had her finger on the trigger. How else is she going to fire it? lol

Let's just go with there is a MAJOR difference between the two, and I'll take Mrs. Palin ANY day...

Old NFO, I would take dang near anyone over Obambi, but Sarah is at the top of my list.

Ears, trigger finger, and no magazine. 40% awesome. Which still beats out His 0ness.

lee n. field,

"Ears, trigger finger, and no magazine."

Bzzzt! Thank you for playing.

The FATS carbine has its magwell full of data cable and pneumatic line. Ears are totally optional. You can dock her some points for the trigger finger discipline, maybe.

Matthew said...

The FATS we used had the cable forward of the magwell, you had to change mags to reload, though I think that was all software determinate. It might have been able to "fire" with an empty well and "unlimited ammo" allotted by the particular program.

Regardless, if she was firing the trigger finger is fine.

I've been pwnt! :o

not that I've *that* much room to talk, but it is rather telling, I think, what counts as "awesome" here.

Not the bridge in Concord, the Liberty Bell, or Independence Hall. Not the faded writing of the Declaration of Independence under glass, or the glasses Washington pulled from his face for his "in the service of my country" speech. Not the waters over the Arizona, and not the hills of Gettysburg.

No.. it's frickin' Photoshops of comic book gizmos.

'Cause that's what I want in a President. A guy buried in comic book fanboy lust. Beautiful. Does he get Wonder Woman's tiara to?
