Bush and the Bird - The Press Office strikes backIf you clicked through the link on my first post about President Bush giving the press the finger. You may have seen, as I did, that the president clearly flips the bird to the press corp. However, that isn't what the White House press office is saying.
After Bush uber-critic (some say hater), John Aravosis posted a scathing comment on Bush's actions, the White House Press Office called him and explained that no, the president was raising his thumb as a sign of getting the CAFTA agreement passed through Congress.
As usual Wonkette, has the funniest reasons why the President acted the way he did.
Below is the pic for your inspection. Do you see the bird or a thumb?
