Bush Flips Out Again
[UPDATED] White House Says it Was a 'Thumb'

Has Bush ever said anything that didn't turn out to be a lie?

His latest effort at "restoring honor and dignity to the White House" was revealed yesterday. Here's the video.

We're happy to see how he's matured since his earlier days as Governor, when he was making the Christians proud down in Texas. I'm sure you remember it. But if not, here's that video for ya.

President Frat Boy. America couldn't be prouder.

UPDATE: From today's White House briefing:

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.

UPDATE 4:00p PT: Aravosis at AMERICAblog received a call from the White House with a fresh explanation:

David Almacy just called me from the White House communications office to clarify the reports that Bush flipped off reporters yesterday while visiting the Hill. David says that Bush was definitely giving the thumbs up sign with regards to the upcoming CAFTA vote (Central American Free Trade Agreement). I asked David if I could write about our conversation, and he said please do.

...Which forces me to ask again: Is there nothing these guys won't lie about??
