"After acknowledging the failure of the past, the existence of non-believers, and the trials ahead, Obama makes that final connection that will cement his place in histroy as a great President: Securing the all-important surfer vote."

Looks to me like he is about to give the sign for someone to call him soon.

"Lets get together later on, call me for an appointment, and I will see if I can fit you in.".

"Screw bowling, I'm installing the world's largest wave-pool off the West Wing. Hang loose, brah!"


"Two in the pink, one in the... how's that go?"


Oh, NO!!!! He's Dr. Evil!!!!

"This is Eagle. OP is GO! Grab Cheney NOW!"

Oh, if only that were true! :)

Hey Monica! Nice handbag. Call me.


Good Grief! Obama flashed that sign when his high school band from Hawaii was marching past the reviewing stand. In Hawaii, everyone knows it means "hang loose." No more, no less, just hang loose. It's a lot like "Island Time." I f you haven't visited Hawaii, then none of this really makes sense.

Uh, also, if you were alive in the 80s, or saw any surf/beach movies. I think a lot of people know the hang loose hand gesture, and I doubt that Bil was trying to imply that this was some sort of terrorist fist jab sort of thing. It's a good photo to comment on for fun.


But I haven't been to Hawaii, so I'm probably wrong.

All of you missed what is going on here.

Being our first technologically savvy president, Obama was horrified to be told that he would have to surrender his Blackberry. But fine negotiator that he is, he haggled with the powers that be to have Walter Reed implant the components of a micro-miniature cell phone under the skin of his left hand.

So, to most of us, that gesture means, "Call me!" ... but when Obama does it, it means, "Excuse me, I'm talking to someone."

"Upon which all conservatives' heads exploded."

When you use the word terrorist, it has more juice than other words. It is like crying wolf. When I read your headline, I became anxious. I am not sure if I want to read your headlines anymore because of it. Yes, you are incendiary, and for what purpose - to see how many hits your little blog gets? I was shocked to see that it was you, after the other things you have written. "If you don't like this, then leave a comment" is so junior high, like saying something mean and leaving it for people to erase. Grow up.
