This is exactly why I hate memes most of the time, in particular political ones. Just now, Moveon.org realized that the picture on the left is, in fact, Romney going through a TSA security check. Though Moveon.org had the partial decency to admit its mistake (the meme has been circulating for a few days at least), it wouldn't matter because the logical implication wouldn't follow regardless.
Romney getting his shoes shined does not imply he is a pompous ass - there are plenty of people who get their shoes shined who are decent human beings. Conversely, Obama handing what looks like money to some guy who appears to be a cheerleader of sorts (?), does not imply that he just strolls through opulent buildings throwing cash at proles.
Plus it's too late to admit a wrong because it doesn't matter. This stupid, misguided notion is sufficiently hammered in.
Memes are typically trite, misguided, short-sighted and appeal to the LCD of the online community. It's the worst form of propaganda, discourages coherent discourse or research. .. I could go on but I think I'll stop and get back to work.
