Holier Than Whom?

Here's the beloved Conservative Christian in action. This is turning the other cheek, Bush style. I'm sure the press feels blessed by this compassionate conservative. As for me, I'm feeling a little bit tired of dealing with these self righteous, finger pointing, name calling, do as I say and not as I do Republican extremists. It's called hypocrisy, and it's your self inflicted mandate. The moral mandate, apparently, was too much uphill work to pull off.

OMG, is that GW giving The Finger to the media??!
Let's watch how they try to explain away and extrapolate this gesture to purify it and make it merely a figment of our liberally-biased imaginations.
This gesture is Hypocrisy defined.
And how old is our president anyway?
The Finger? C'mon!

No kidding, Betsy!

Scottie McClellan wouldn't even give it a flat denial!

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.

That's pretty good. But if you want to see another example of "right-wing hyppocrisy", check out Sean Hannity (a.k.a., "Little Jesus") when he thought the mic was turned off after interviewing a Democrat last year (MP3 audio file - WARNING!!! Profanity and vocal hatred alert!!!):

I, for one, am tiring of their "Jesus was a right-wing extremist" bullcrap. The good thing is, I've read the Bible and it seems to me that this brand of "smoke and mirrors" is going to "smite" them on the a## for even "going there", but hey - who am I to judge?

Lol, I've got no excuse for Bush, but Howard Dean is the one who has classified us as the 'White Christian Party.' And although we've been classified as that, can these guys not make a mistake or two every now and then? We're all sinners, so what's the deal with us judging these guys? Everyone acts as if, since we're known as white Christians, that we have no room to sin. And then, when we do sin all the other sinners are casting the first stone.

What's the deal?

And whatever they do is not even close to adultery in the White House, perjuring and lying to the American people, straight into the camera. All Presidents have their faults. We've all been sick of all Presidents.

But this judging thing is getting crazy.

"But this judging thing is getting crazy."

True, RV; from BOTH sides. Less rhetoric, & more "conversations" could go a long way toward getting this country back into the hands of the majority (i.e., the "regular folks" who make it up).

RV, I agree with you. This rampant judgement of character that is so pervasive in our gov is sickening (even though it is everywhere, truth be told). But I think part of the problem is the fact that too many think their own s*** don't stink. If they would just admit they're human (by this I mean being honest), apologize and move on we'd be in a much better place.

True, and hardly a new thing as many Presidents from both parties had extramarital affairs.

I think what everybody really objects to is the lying.

Come on! Everyone should give Pres. Bush a pass for this. Look at how the media hound his administration. I bet even Pres. Clinton said "right on" after seeing this picture.
