The Chipmunk in the Small Chair

A year after the event, there still seem to be questions about the Situation Room picture the White House released shortly after the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. That picture is apparently often referred to as the "Chipmunk in the Small Chair" photo.

And there's a reason for that. "Shortly after the release of the photo, a Swedish paper made the observation that the photo was manipulated and Obama looks like a midget in the chair despite his six-foot-plus stature."

Of course, the way Team Obama would really like everyone to remember the event is reflected in the picture looking like this. (It's something I got by e-mail.)
