This Reuters photo of Willie Mays aboard Air Fore One, which was flying President Barack Obama to St. Louis for tonight's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, caught our attention because of what looks to be questionable adult content on the plane's TV screen. Although we have already heard from friends that it might be footage from "Planet of the Apes" we can only imagine the reaction of those who don't have the luxury of that information. Right wingers across America are probably saying this is just "another sign that Obama is a homo loving commie."
