Carnival offers shoot-the-president game

(Click to enlarge.) More America today, people. Facebook pal Joe Ferraro sends a story about a Catholic church’s carnival game that has contestants shooting darts at a black man holding health care legislation and wearing the presidential seal for a belt buckle. Barack Obama, mayhaps? The owner of “Alien Attack” tells the Lehigh Valley paper:

“Yes, a woman talked to me about it,” [Irvin L. Good, Jr.] said Tuesday. “She said she was offended by it. I said if you are, you might want to be. But you’re interpreting it as being Obama. We’re not interpreting it as Obama. The name of the game is ‘Alien Leader.’ If you’re offended, that’s fine, we duly note that.”
The priest at our Lady of Mount Carmel says he learned of the game only afterward, when a parishioner complained, and that he’d have stopped it had he known about it. [Lehigh Valley Live]
