070306_salvoad PETA is normally more than happy to exploit events that can assist in their media whoring agenda, but in the case of President Obama’s fly-killing incident, it was news organizations that prodded them into action. The animal rights organization writes:

“Believe it or not, we’ve actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA’s official response to the executive insect execution.”

But since they were asked, the group used the opportunity to reassure Buddhists that the president isn’t Siddhārtha Gautama and that in the future, he should use one of their “humane” insect traps.
