Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis: Birdie, birdie in the sky...

Birdie, birdie in the sky...

Back when President Bush was Governor Bush, he was captured on video flipping the bird to a reporter in Texas. The picture to the left is a still from that video.

Last year, there were unconfirmed reports of President Bush flipping off protesters in Pennsylvania.

Last night on Jay Leno, Jay played a very interesting video of President Bush walking past a group of reporters. He gave them a special salute on the right.

So the question is: has this man totally lost his mind?

Interestingly enough, David Almacy from White House Communications actually called John Aravosis at Americablog to assure him that the President was actually giving a "thumbs up" sign regarding the CAFTA vote.

OK.

Then how come, during a White House briefing today, Scott McClellan was mum about the incident?

Q Scott, last night on the Tonight Show, Jay Leno, who apparently is subbing for Johnnie, displayed a video of the President at the Capitol yesterday. In that video, the President walking away from the press lifts his hand and raises a finger. Mr. Leno interpreted it as, shall we say, a finger of hostility. Each of our fingers has a special purpose and meaning in life. (Laughter.) Can you tell us what finger it was he held up?

MR. McCLELLAN: Ken, I'm not even going to dignify that with much of a response. But if someone is misportraying something, that's unfortunate.

Q Well, it was not a finger of hostility?

MR. McCLELLAN: Ken, I was there with him, and I'm just not going to -- I'm not going to dignify that with a response. I mean, I haven't seen the video that you're talking about, but I know the way the President acts. And if someone is misportraying it, that's unfortunate.


But Scott, I thought you guys said it was his thumb?

Yeah, sure, youbetcha...
