I've been mildly amused by the story about a New Orleans politician and her election website. Wonkette discovered that the photo featured on her website showed her standing on a reproduction French-Quarter street-front in Disneyland - rather a stupid thing, given she lives in freaking New Orleans. The giggles got a bit louder when the Disney folks decided to send threatening letters to her for use of their proprietary photos.

Now it's gotten to coffee-spitting time. In response to the threat, instead of going out and actually taking a picture of herself in her own hometown, she's had aides photoshop out the incriminating garbage can that was one of the main giveaways the photo was shot on a Disneyland set. Yeah, that'll fix 'em. Noooobody will guess it's a fake now. Too, too funny.
