Fickle Finger of Fate Points Up

In today's Gaggle, we read hostile presser questions and Scottie non-denial denials on TreasonGate, Bolton, North Korea, and the Energy Bill, and we also get the First Finger.
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.

One thing that has become obvious to me after reading the Gaggles of late, the Press Corps has lost respect for the man behind the podium. They mock him. And rightly so.

But hey, let's give Dubya the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he was merely flicking away the booger he'd just dug out of his nose.

With his middle finger.

Lawd knows it'd take his middle finger to dig out boogers, considering the damage the cocaine abuse did to his septum.
