ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! For the record, they cut to another scene too quickly, and past experience with these kinds of videos always makes the interpretation a little iffy when they cut away too soon. (remembering the one that claimed a foreign delegation was refusing to shake Obama's hand, when a fuller, less edited video elsewhere showed otherwise).

Noah, as an interesting aside, concerning "objectivity..." One of the comments in the Huffington Post story links to a right wing site, Breitbart. The comments on Breitbart about this video are generally from right wingers, and even THEY seem to believe Bush was wiping his hands. The difference between the sides is that a lot of the right wingers seem to agree with the sentiment that there is a need to wipe your hands on somebody's shirt after shaking hands with a Haitian; they don't seem to...

Reference: My point is that that even if Bush DID purposely wipe his hands on Clintons Shirt, there are other reasons that might not have anything to do with them being Haitian. But it would've been trifling as hell to wipe it on Clinton's shirt and not on his own! That's what made it so funny to me. If dude had wiped his own shirt, that would have been one thing. But the wiping of Clinton's shirt is part of what makes it so absurd -- and therefore so comedic -- to think he was wiping,...

I posted this in the "tea partiers spit and call nigger/faggot" thread but it goes well here too, i think: I don't remember which republican politician said it, but during all the town hall melee and ensuing drama over healthcare reform, a politician said "This will be Obama's Waterloo"...

One cannot pass judgment until benefits are reconciled with cost and or when the action experiences its full reaction. I think a truly civil and modern society should have Universal Health Care.

Sore Loser GOP Still Fighting Lost Health Care Battle It would be nice if Republicans could simply face the fact that they lost the battle of health care reform . But the party of privilege isn't used to hearing the word "NO" applied to anything they seek. So as President Barack Obama was signing in to law landmark legislation that will provide health care coverage for 32-million uninsured Americans, Republicans across the country were still trying to fight a battle they have already lost.
