At least now we know he's a man. I was wondering.

You would think that Michelle would have taught him to just move his eyes.

Oh boy, if this gets any traction, the blogosphere is in for a fun week. SWIPIEW, a bit of an Obama fan, just saw me open your site and squealed: "Is he looking at her a__?" "Yes", I said. "No, no I don't think so", she protested. " He's looking at her hair." "Umm, dear..." "Look, you can see he's looking at her hair. Is that a man's site you are looking at?" "As a mtter of fact, it is. A conservative man's site!" "Mmmm..."

Her hair! That's the ticket. He was just looking at her hair!

(Man, they really just don't get us, do they?)

I think we all know what I think of Obama, but in the list of weakness for which I would forgive him, scoping a sweet little derriere like that is near the top. It's not like he reached out and grabbed it.

Terrible disappointment this, but full marks to the frog.

Personally, I find the video ambiguous. But what's hilarious is the energy people who see themselves as Obama supporters are putting into "proving" that he wasn't oggling.

I saw the video when it first happened and Obama didn't help the black girl down the stairs twice as in this version.

However, Sarkozy definitely seems to be checking out the landscape carefully.

David is right. Obama supporters are putting a lot of energy into changing this reality just like they're putting a lot of energy into saying he didn't bounce the pitch in the Star Game although the original ESPN video shows quite clearly that the catcher picked up the ball after it bounced.

It's a lot of work maintaining Obama's god like persona.

Seems to me that both sides are working pretty hard against reality.

I still don't think anything can top the Republican rage at Obama 'flicking the bird' to McCain during a speech. Still makes me LOL.
