(Newser) – Possibly the only conservative more outrageous than Rush Limbaugh is .. his brother. In a jolting new political dig, David Limbaugh (Gawker call him the "less drug-addicted" Limbaugh) has tweeted photos of President Obama and Texas Gov. Rick Perry and snickers: "Boys will be boys." Perry is decked out in his Air Force pilot's uniform looking manly, while Obama looks like he's about 14 years old and chillin' with something that could be mistaken for a joint between his lips. Limbaugh claims it's a "retweet" from a "friend."

"James Richard 'Rick' Perry" and "Barack Hussein Obama II" are both labeled as 22 in the tweeted photos—but Obama is likely younger. As Media Matters points out, the image of him was taken when he was a freshman (see original here). Perry's spokesman Mark Miner told Politico: "A picture is worth a thousand words." Perry has attacked the president for not serving in the military. (Read more Barack Obama stories.)
