Crooksandliars captured this video clip1 from last night’s Leno. There was some discussion in the post at Crooksandliars as to whether it was Bush’s thumb or middle finger. I single framed through the clip a couple of times and have to agree with the folks who claim to have seen a knuckle to the left of the extended finger. Do we refer to the etended digit as the First Finger?
This isn’t the first time for W. Although I don’t have a link, I distinctly remember that he did something very similar during the election—only that time he made eye contact with the intended target. Just a frat boy who never grew up, except the pranks are lethal.
