AP Says Shots of Gun Pointed at Ted Cruz’s Head Not Intended to be Negative

But it sure is funny!

From PetaPixel: http://petapixel.com/2015/06/23/ap-says-shots-of-gun-pointed-at-ted-cruzs-head-not-intended-to-be-negative/

The photographer took a series of 14 photos, and I just can't help but think it's a subtle (maybe no-so-subtle) political jab. Great framing in my book!

1. I thought for a moment it was a real gun

That would have been unacceptable, IMHO. But showing him posed in front of a picture of a gun is okay, although I'd argue it's still in pretty bad taste no matter how we feel about him.

7. Yeah, but he posed himself there.

It isn't like the photog told him to stand there. He chose to do a 2nd amendment speech in front of a poster of gun pics. I'd say that's what is in bad taste, in light of the event his reactionary bullshit is in response to.

I'm tempted to give the photographer and editors a pass on this one.

12. I am amused

that he got himself in a position where a picture of a gun is aimed rather amusingly at him.

Meanwhile, he has no problem with real guns being pointed at lots and lots of people.

6. Carnival could take a page from John Ashcroft's play book

Just cover the offensive guns with drapes. That's what Ashcan did to the spirit of Justice in more than one way.

God save us from prudes!

9. Remember Sarah Palin and the turkey slaughter?

You would think someone would check the backdrop.
