Someone with some skillz please:

get a still of Gandalf holding Glamdring up with the lightning striking it from The Two Towers (movie, in case you've been living under a rock for the past 5 years), and put RP's face on Gandalf of course. Juxtapose with a still of Gandalf striking the Balrog - with Guiliani's face on it, of course.

This would be great.

Shouldn't be hard, if not easy. Just give me the pictures, as high-res as possible, and I'll do it in a snap.

I was thinking more the movie stills from The Two Towers movie; but those work pretty well too. Maybe not quite as recognizable as the movie stills. Someone who is good at photoshop can surely pull 'em from a vid.

Couldn't this be construed as copywrite infringement?

We're not using it for commercial gain

It falls under fair use, at least until all our freedoms are stripped away.

Fair use as parody so long as it isn't sold.

Also I suck at potato chopping paintings. I'm going to try and find a movie shot.

Man, you guys beat me to it. So funny because I thought this exact same thing. There is a subtle resemblence between Ron Paul and Ian McKellan (sp?). I think the use of a movie still would be great. Too funny! :D

Yeah, you guys are right about Fair Use (political comment, etc), so no worries. I'll be a lawyer in December, so if it comes up, I can help you fend 'em off until I graduate and then I'll help you settle for a nominal fee! :)

Somebody get on this pronto!!

I'm working on it!

Course I haven't slept all night and will probably go to bed for a few hours first...
