Gilbert Arenas Gets Obama Tattoo

Just in case you happen to read the Bog but not the Wizards Insider....With so many of Gilbert's previous tales having been later proved to be slight exaggerations, this one actually could be Top 5 in his all-time smack-your-head-into-your-monitor weirdness. Michael Lee reports:

Arenas has decided to show his permanent support of President-elect Barack Obama with a tattoo. Arenas had the words "Change We Believe In" tattooed onto the fingers of his left hand in cursive writing. Then, Gilbert showed the outside of his pinky finger, which had "44" inked on it.

Arenas shortened Obama's campaign slogan, "Change We Can Believe In," choosing not to add ink to his thumb. Arenas has "change" written on the outside of his index finger; "we" on the inside of his middle finger; "believe" on the inside of his ring finger; and "in" on the inside of his pinky and "44" on the outside of his pinky.

And I can only assume he would have gotten a "You Betcha!" tat on his rump had McCain-Palin won.

Guess since the whole "Country First" thing didn't work out, he decided to finally join the winning team.

Yeah with the implementation of the fairness doctrine I'm going to have to request that Gilbert add an image of Ronald Reagan to his chest.

What if he turns out to be a crappy president? I mean, I hope the guy does a good job and everything, but let's just say "what if." I mean, Jimmy Carter was supposed to bring change, too.

Gilbert Arenas is the BIGGEST hypocrite on the face of the planet. Um didn't this idiot tell the media that he WAS NOT voting a couple of weeks back because he was so worried about getting taxed more or he didn't believe in what the candidates said they would do. And he tries to be a role model to kids but yet he tells people he is not VOTING and now he gets a tattoo for a candidate he said he didn't believe in. What a JERK!!! As u can see, i am really not a fan but if u r going act like ur somebody then u need to be careful about the words u speak out your mouth. As an african-american, voting is something that people fought for and this idiot said he wouldn't. Clearly NOT impressed!!!
