Way to Get Us to Take You Seriously

From the AP:

PETA wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly

WASHINGTON (AP) — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he’s bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”

During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly intruded on Obama’s conversation with correspondent John Harwood.

“Get out of here,” the president told the pesky insect. When it didn’t, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.

“Now, where were we?” Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: “That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it? I got the sucker.”

That’s probably the first and only thing that came out of TheWun’s™ mouth that I honestly think is great ~ given the fact that PETA is upset!

R+I+P little fly.  We hardly knew you.  Oh, wait.  Yes we did.  You’re just like all of the others.  Annoying!

    Okay this is coming from a group that has euthanize THOUSANDS of cats and dogs. In 2006 PETA euthanize 2981 of the 9637 cats and dogs they handled that year. (That’s 31%) In 2007 they euthanize 1815 of the 8362 cats and dogs they handled that year. (That’s 22%). I found the records via Virginia’s Department of Ag. http://www.virginia.gov/vdacs_ar/cgi-bin/Vdacs_search.cgi (2008 records were not listed). PETA is short for: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (The records are listed under the groups full name). This is what they do and they are worried about 1 fly!
