New Republic, the same Obama-slobbering magazine that allowed the president to say he does “skeet shooting all the time” at Camp David — without challenging him to produce proof — this week tweeted what it said was a White House photo of Mr. Obama shooting skeet. The only problem is, it was fake, a fakery that the new official organ of the Obama presidency was forced to admit. And the world breathlessly awaits word from the White House on what kind of gun the president uses. ... Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel sent letters to TD Bank and Bank of America urging them to stop offering lines of credit to gun manufacturers. Those big bad bullies are profiting from gun violence, he claims. It's like saying automakers profit from vehicular homicide and swimming pool manufacturers profit from backyard child drownings. Mr. Emanuel has become the poster child for “progressive” critical thinking skills. ... There's a new scandal for the “most transparent administration” in American history. The Washington Free Beacon reports that congressional investigators have discovered a second high-ranking EPA official who used a personal email account to conduct official business, ostensibly to keep such emails out of the public domain. Investigators believe the EPA's outgoing boss went as far as using a pseudonym in her government-related private email dealings. Talk about “shadow government.”
