Big Blue & White 747

As I'm sure many of you have already heard, the government spent an estimated $360,000 for that “Photo Op” debacle which had the President’s 747 flying low over New York City, escorted by a fighter jet. This guy, Scott Kelby, hacked together the composite you see above in Adobe Photoshop, using a background from istockphoto and an official White House shot of "Big Blue and White 747" from their website.

Rather than spending $360,000 foolishly, I'm sure those smart(?) folks running the country could have used one of the interns at the White House to photoshop something similar for no cost.
