Bush Whacked by the Stones



"You call yourself a Christian
I call you a hypocrite
You call yourself a patriot
Well I think you're full of shit.

How come you're so wrong
my sweet neo-con."


I thought the Stones' new lyrics (from "My Sweet Neo-con") deserved to be paired with my favourite Bush picture. The new Rolling Stones album, "A Bigger Bang" will be released September 6th (yes Duncan, that is a hint).

Just what is the context for that photo anyway?

When George Bush was Governor of Texas he gave the camera a one fingered salute before going on the air. This was historically significant because Bush is the highest ranking U.S. official (even at Governor) caught flipping the bird - the record was previously held by Rockefeller (1975).

In July 2004, protestors reported that Mr. Bush had given them the finger, but no camera caught the offending gesture.

It seems to be something he likes to do...

Hmm. That is interesting. Thanks.

I don't know exactly about this pic tho - I am working on it. Have found some things interesting enough... will share. Perhaps when you come over with more beer :-)
