1. I honestly didn't think this would create this type of shitstorm.

THUMB or be damned. I swear we are in the twilight zone. I've already been accused of being a troll. I've been accused of being an apologist (wow). I've been told that since NBC showed it on Jay Leno and AOL posted it on their website, it MUST be a middle finger. Holy Shit. THat's all I can say.

4. I think it's his pointer finger
but when it comes to CAFTA he may as well have given us his middle finger

9. Insufficient evidence to support either.
The screen capture is dubious. That being said, I find it unlikely that Bush would give the press the finger. He's flipped off cameras before in the past, but even he is not classless enough to do it now.

10. I have looked at it over and over
And I have tried to make my hand form that way with my thumb. Either I have fucked up bones, or everyone else here does.

14. I accidentally voted for "thumb".
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 10:56 AM by Ronnie
I really think it's his bird finger. First of all, his thumb would have to be freakishly long. Secondly, Jay thinks it's his finger. Thirdly, he is the kind of classless person who would do that...thinking, of course, that he was out of camera range.

16. Should you have separated index and middle fingers in the poll?
Right now I'm leaning toward index finger or pen.

He still has his finger stuck up his ass.

18. With thumb and pen, your hand looks too bulbous.
Middle finger extended looks angular, like his hand in that photograph.

19. I really think it is his pointer finger.
If you take all the frames around this one, none of the others look like a middle finger.
If you turn your hand a certain way, your thumb is visible to the left of your index finger - in a way that this frame could be.

You really have to check all the other frames to be sure - and in none of those, does it look like a middle finger.

My last $0.02.

20. You know if this was some liberal the PTC and all those religious groups

Can we do the same?
