PETA is not amused... but then PETA never is. Still, conservatives should feel their terror abated to see that PETA is now rejecting Obama's divinity:

Also note that PETA issued this statement only after being contacted by "multiple media outlets" seeking PETA's opinion on the fly-swatting. Ah, those darn media muckrakers....
