PETA Protests Obama's Killing of Innocent Fly

By now, I'm sure you've all have heard the fly swat heard 'round the world. Late night talk show hosts had a field day making fun of President Obama's artful swat of a persistent fly that bugged him during an interview.

Enter PETA to the fray: the animal rights group decried Obama's display of unchecked executive power and suggested that next time he used a humane fly catcher instead:

“We support compassion for the even the smallest animals," says Bruce Friedrich, VP for Policy at PETA. “We support giving insects the benefit of the doubt."

Friedrich says PETA supports "brushing flies away rather than killing them" and was disappointed that the President had gone ahead and squashed the pesky fly.

This afternoon PETA sent a Katcha Bug, a device which traps bugs and allows their safe release back into nature to the White House.

Good thing it didn't happen to Cheney - he'd have used his shotgun fo' sho': Link

So Peta people would not swat a mosquito in the act of sucking their blood, even in a west nile infected area.
Yeah right. Watch out for those poor termites eating you out of house and home too.
