Stephen Colbert had a field day this Wednesday with the wingnuts on the right who are apparently outraged that President Obama dared to put his foot on his desk in the Oval Office. How dare he! Everyone knows that none of our previous presidents have ever done that.
Here's more from Steve Benen on some of the worst of the madness: Conservatives' newfound interest in Obama's feet:
Shortly after President Obama announced he would seek congressional approval for military intervention in Syria, the White House issued a photo of Obama speaking on the phone with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) that morning. It wasn't an especially remarkable Oval Office image, but the right really didn't care for it.
Drudge put the shot on his homepage and soon after, Tea Partiers, among others, wanted to know, "Does seeing President Obama's foot on the Oval Office desk make your blood boil?"
