Christopher Pyne might be "the fixer," but his Photoshop skills could certainly do with a polish, judging from the job he just did on Anthony Albanese in parliament this afternoon.
In a heated debate over infrastructure projects, Pyne whipped out a photo of Mount Rushmore. The carving, of 18-metre high faces of U.S. presidents into solid granite, usually bears the likenesses of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln -- except Pyne's doctored version had Albo's face slapped where George Washington's face would be.
Fairfax snapper Alex Ellinghausen captured this image:

His colleague Andrew Meares got this one. Barnaby Joyce seemed to enjoy it.
