Sorta... now that I'm reading some response to the clip, it sounds like CNN might be taking it out of context a little bit.  Something about how he'd already been introduced to all of them which is why he wasn't shaking their hands... I'm not sure.  Still... looks to me like he was getting a huge snub from everyone.  He's got kind of an aw-shucks, head-down, little-kid-scorned look about him that's fairly pathetic though.  Bush has gotta be hating life right now.

only two more months until his longest vacation ever.  for the next 20 years we're going to be seeing him get zoomed in on at baseball games.

I bet the first thing on the vacation agenda is to have a good, long, hard cry.

You know, watching that video last night, it's clearly out of context.  They're hurrying to get on stage for the photo and it's the gladhanders slowing shit down.

Yeah... once again, CNN wears its liberal agenda on its sleeve.

Palin being interviewed as turkeys are slaughtered in the background... pretty surreal.

Yeah...and the background story on it is even weirder.  Palin chose the backdrop, and even joked about it with the newscaster.

The slaughter's not even that bad really, it's the goony looking guy in the background who's kind of leering at the camera as the turkey feet wiggle around in his hand... very strange.

For anyone who's seen two or more episodes of Northern Exposure, there's nothing surprising about the video at all.

Hello -- Palin's from Alaska.  That state makes West Virginia look cosmopolitan.

hahahahaa... MSNBC is so fucking transparent.  Before they aired the clip they told everyone to get their kids out of the room.... then they blurred the turkey's feet out!  Gimme a break... it's a shitty place to do an interview, but they're trying to make it look like she's giving an interview on the set of a snuff film.

I noticed that, too.  And saw another clip of something from CNN this morning where the announcer was doing the same sort of thing... Again, glad I don't have a TV.  What's with this faux-sensationalist thing? 

Now hold on to your seats...make sure the lights are turned up...avert your head if you're squeamish...I have here...yes...yes...it is a block of cheddar cheese!!!!

The media's scrambling with no election to sensationalize.

It's all about the girl who lived for four months without a heart.

Which is kind of amazing really.
