Political Photo of the Year?



Is it real or is it Memorex? If the photo above is real, then it has to qualify as THE political photo of the year...or maybe of all time in terms of providing laughs. Supposedly this photo was taken at the 9-11 memorial this year. Some folks think it is photoshopped because it seems just too comedically perfect. Therefore your homework assignment, boys and girls, is to find out if this photo is for real or not. Okay, we shall next return with a regular DUFU edition but this photo is so incredible I had to devote this edition to it.

UPDATE: We now have proof that the photo above is REAL! Below is another photo from the same event: a May 3 Delaware Law Enforcement memorial ceremony in Dover. Sitting next to Biden in the photo below is Chief McDerby aka "W.C. Fields." So the classic photo above is REAL!!!

Anonymous Corona. Yeah, I saw this yesterday. It's too perfect not to be shopped. I can imagine the big guys' comments right afterward. said...

Yeah, I saw this yesterday & thought this must be shopped. It's too perfect. I imagine the big dudes' next line would be, "You're gonna look pretty funny eating corn on the cob with NO F*CKING TEETH!"

Not real. Too many elements at odd with each other. Biden face is fuzzy, cops face is crystal clear.

That is too funny!

If it was shopped, congratulations to the comedian who put it together. The expressions, everything, are just perfect.

Biden to cop (in best Mae West voice): "Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just glad tosee me?"

Definitely Photoshopped. I have searched archives of Biden photos and can't find this anywhere.

"Are you a union member or just happy to touch me?"

Note how everyone in the picture is frowning. Not a smile in the crop.

ROFL! It's a real photo?! Just goes to show you that when the DUmmies are in charge, it's hard to tell comedy from reality.

Wow, it's real. Maybe Biden thought his wife was sitting next to him. Heh.

And what happened to my post up there? Wow, misfire.

That startled cop actually looks like W.C. Fields but the thigh messaging Biden makes a poor Mae West.

It would have been hilarious if the offended policeman had wrestled Biden to the ground and cuffed him.

I'm jealous. This is BS!! I sent Joe sexy pictures of myself dressed as each village person; and all I got was a visit from the Secret Service and a restraining order

Then I see him feeling up this Goober!!! That's it I'm not voting for grandma and grandpa this year. That's 4 less votes I'll be casting for the Democratics.

I agree. The hand on the knee. The rolled up papers with a surprise inside...and the guys in back. The guys in back are genius.

It's really funny or it's funny really or it's fucking funny.

I think we all can agree on this one.

Oh, I get it now. Joe noticed what the big guy was holding and saw that it was ribbed.

Because I have the power.

I don't think it's photoshoped. Some have said that the officer's face is in focus and the vp's isn't. That's how single-lens camera lenses work, especially if shot wide open which is often necessary in poor lighting. If people even farther away were in focus, that would be evidence of photoshoping.
