RFK '08!

That's an actual poll at the Philadelphia Inquirer, attached to some story about how wonderful Obama is. (Just in case we'd all forgotten.) Please click on that image and vote for Bobby Kennedy, just to be silly geese. It's an embarrassing mistake, but in the Inquirer's defense, RFK died before most of the paper's remaining staff members' parents were born.

The real answer, of course, is None of the Above. It's starting to look like the former president who Obama resembles most is either Bill Clinton or... George W. Bush! No wonder our netroots friends are seething. But then, that's their natural state.

Update: And now that people have noticed, the Inquirer has flushed ol' Bobby down the memory hole. Keep earning your paychecks, media pros.
