Finger-Gate
He said he would bring honor and integrity to the White House but instead, he brought a fistful of dollars and a finger stuck up in the air, telling the American people to go fuck themselves. He said he would be a uniter, not a divider, but as we now know, he lied like a Baptist preacher. He said he would get Osama, the supposed mastermind behind the attacks on 9/11, dead or alive, but Osama is somewhere in the world laughing his ass off at the cowboy. Everything he has touched has turned to shit and everything he has said has been a lie, yet his followers blindly follow until their legs are chopped off at the knees, then they will crawl across the desert for the man they invested so much in, as he turns his back to them and walks away like a pissed-off 12 year-old with his middle finger stuck up in the air...

1. Don't forget Cheney's "Go fuck yourself."
Dignity indeed.

2. Good Rant, but it is still a Thumb in the Video
W does stick up the PROVERBIAL finder at everyone but his sycophants.

3. We need the Governor picture
where he actually is. For comparison.

I agree. A thumb.

4. Then why did Scotty not say,
"He was giving a thumb's up". Easy! But he didn't say that, he dodged the question.

7. And right in the middle of his fist while the flex in his elbow joint
remains at such an angle that he would have had to contort his wrist to get the thumb "in the middle of his fist" as some have asserted.

Why doesn't Scotty just say: it was a thumbs up?

Geez, even Nixon was smart enough to use TWO fingers.

9. If you enlarge this picture,
it's easy to tell it's been photo-shopped. Shrub tells us to *&^% off every day just by being there, but this really was a thumbs up.

shame on him.

Does that look like someone who's been "born again"?

Thanks for digging that up. He sure does have long fingers.

10. see how WIDE his wrist is.. when turned that way.. its a thumb!
his hand is turned.. not back-of-hand facing the camera.. theres nothing here but ridicule... on the other hand (pun intended) his political advisor lied to grand jury and maybe treason, showing bush lied us into war... theres the DSM and recent resolution of inquiry, and an '06 election to win with paper trail machines that we need to fight for..

we got plenty with of fuk you's to deal with...

11. this is a waste of our time. i've seen the old video of bush giving the
finger on camera, and that's very real. this one is a thumbs-up, and there's no doubt in my mind. i'd love to believe it's a middle finger as much as anyone else, and for a few moments i did, but when i found a high-res version of the video online i paused it during many moments of the "finger" and moments before and after as his hand moved both up and down, and i have no doubt it's a thumb, not a finger. but if this story has legs as an embarrassment to bush, so be it... the more the better.
