What goes around comes around

I call it good aim:

ABC's Ann Compton reports: An outdoor news conference in perfect spring weather, with birds chirping loudly in the magnolia trees, is not without its hazards.

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.
That's one smart bird! Bush also was boasting about winning all his new war funding, no strings attached, and said yesterday it would be a bloody summer for our soldiers (hear: hee, hee, hee, I'm the commander guy). The sadist seems to thirst for that blood.

Listening to him makes my skin crawl, so I'm not going to post the video. But what fool wipes bird poop off his left arm with his right hand and then grabs the presidential podium, aka Bush's bully pulpit? Where's his sidekick with a wipe?

Extra-credit reading:
... (T)he Sermon on the Mount, in the Book of Matthew, ... says if you want to know God's design when it comes to the question of empires, study the sparrows.

Then, lo and behold, a sparrow empties our bowels upon our emperor.

You give Bush too much credit by comparing him to Monk from USA Network. Bush's lamebrain is in a similarly fictional world, though. I saw the video and thought, "He's drunk again." Wiping birdshit off with your bare hand is not normal behavior.
