From Crooks and Liars:

From ABC:

As President Bush took a question Thursday in the White House Rose Garden about scandals involving his Attorney General, he remarked, "I've got confidence in Al Gonzales doin' the job."

Simultaneously, a sparrow flew overhead and left a splash on the President's sleeve, which Bush tried several times to wipe off.

Well, of course, there are no real political or intellectual ramifications for this. But it is most certainly worth noting. A real case of poetic justice. I mean, Bush is doing his usual defense of his heinous picks for important executive branch jobs and a bird comes along and shits on him. Then, like the redneck moron he is, the President smears the bird turd into his suit sleeve. Fucking great. You can't write fiction like this. I also love the fact that the video reruns the shit-and-wipe multiple times.

You know half the country wishes it could have been that bird.
