Will any news mention Bush flipping the Bird??
Come on now! If Clinton flipped the bird when being asked about Monica, all hell would break loose. Giving Reporters the bird is NEWSWORTHY!

12. I've flipped the bird many times
and yep, that's what it looks like. Bush has been flipping us the bird since the first day he stepped into the whitehouse. He's just getting caught doing it now, no news, he has been telling us to go fuck ourselves for 5 1/2 years now, what's the big deal.

I'm sure if this was Clinton it would be:

32. Why do I point out that some want it to be a thumb,
just as you point out that some want it to be a finger?

Um, because that's what we're seeing here?

I don't recall accusing anyone of being a Bush apologist, though. Perhaps you are Miss Cleo?

So fucking sad, I have to agree.

19. I really think it's a thumb, guys.
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 10:31 AM by Stirk
Look at it frame-by-frame as he lowers his arm. The "finger" moves off to the left, and is pretty clearly his thumb.

25. Who cares if it's his thumb?
Yeah, maybe it's his thumb, but who cares? He walked away from reporters and ignored their questions - as he and his whole stonewalling administration have been doing for days and days - and he made a dismissive gesture with his hand as he did it.

What if the foreign reporter who was trying to question him thought the same thing we did? That he was being flipped off and dismissed by a world leader? Heck, there are some places where the thumbs up is the same as the "bird" anyway.

Thumb or middle finger, Bush's meaning was clear: "Drop dead, losers. I'm the Emperor and I do what I want and there's nothing you can do about it."

He is doing a lot of the things that I have seen, and expect from someone who is back on the coke...

Just a thought
