The Feds Got to Google

If you were hoping to use Google Maps' new satellite imaging feature to see if George W. Bush really has been writing large messages to God on the roof of the White House, you're shit out of luck. As you can see from the image below (here's the link), the satellite close-up shot of the White House roof has clearly been scrubbed to an even, neutral brown by The Man. And note the bad Photoshop job covering the roofs of the adjacent buildings to the left and right (executive office buildings, maybe?), and the digital blur over each courtyard--are there nipples in there or something?



As others have suggested, they're probably just super-worried about security and stuff like that, what with all those people who want to kill our government. But it looks like Rummy's balls are so huge that he doesn't care if Osama knows what's on his roof:


UPDATE: There are nipples in there! Why else would they blur the whole Capitol Building? You know what it looks like when viewed from above, don't you?
