Who Raised These Kids?

Last year on the floor of the United States Senate, Vice President Cheney told Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont to fuck himself.

Yesterday President George W. Bush gave the press the finger. Apparently this is not the first time the president has been so digitally outspoken.

I’m sure Barbara is so proud of her son who has restored respect and integrity to the Oval Office and that he and everyone in his administration comports themselves with the dignity that is worthy of the higher standards expected of their position.

If they were my campers, though, I’d take away their blue kerchiefs.

Update: The White House is going into full-court press to try to deny that Bush flipped off the press, even to the point where they are calling bloggers to say that he was giving the “thumbs up!” sign. (This is their version of “I didn’t inhale.”) Check out the close-up here and decide for yourself. As for me, I’ve driven in Miami traffic long enough to know when I’ve been flipped off.
