Buzz: Obama's Middle Finger

The Web Is Buzzing About This Photo - Barrack Gives The Bird?:

obama middle finger

Just when you thought the Democratic race couldn’t get uglier, Barack Obama is being accused of giving Hillary Clinton the finger at a town hall meeting in North Carolina.

The gesture — which may have been an innocent scratch of the face or, according to some, something more mischievous — came as Obama was complaining Thursday about the debate in Philadelphia the night before.

Bloggers were quick to note that as the Illinois senator scolded his Democratic rival for her performance at the debate, he raised his right hand and scratched his cheek with one finger. That finger.


This is the lamest controversy ever. Barrack Obama scratches his nose all of the time. To me, it's clear he's scratching his face in the grainy photo above. I know (despite Popemania 2008) it's been a slow news week but, come on, this is a absolute joke of a story.

First, that link in peeved guy's post didn't work for me. Also, at first I thought he was saying Obama is a monkey because of Peeve's icon, LOL. Anyway, this is a superlame story. But I had not heard it until I read it on your site, so my question is, why did YOU bother? Its just such a nothing story, isnt' it? Or is Stepanopolis going to ask Obam about it at the next debet!!LOL

And no, I don't think he is a monkey. A socialist, yes, but not a monkey.

Regardless, that monkey is intense!

OK now I see it peeved. Funny. I don't think Obama is a Socialist, any more than I think Bush/Cheney are facists. Then again...

I like my monkey, he looks appropriately peeved.
