Crowdsourcing My Fact-Checking

posted by on August 6 at 15:40 PM

I’m busy on deadline and need a little help. Make fun of my ignorance if you must, but can someone out there ID the image behind this speaker’s platform for me? The Constitutional Convention of 1787? (Bonus points if you can guess the politician who was recently using this backdrop.)

As to which speaker? Got to be Ron-the-Racist Paul.

Which politician? I'm guessing Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister of Iraq.

No, No.

It's the signing of the Patriot Act and Enabling Legislation for Removing Privacy Rights of Americans by the White House in 2004.

All I know is Ben Franklin is a P-I-M-P. Look at him all chillin' in his chair. Sure, he lets GW stand up and get the attention, but that's only cause he knows who gets the bitches. Aw yeah.

Thanks for all the help! In the next issue of The Stranger: The answer to the question of who was recently using this backdrop.

Ron Paul is a racist? I know nothing about him, just curious.

OK, did you all guess Ron Paul because you watch too much CNN, or did you just let your mouse roll over the image to see the hypertext "PaulSpeakersPlatform.jpg"?
