News: Bush receives bad auspice
ABC reports that a sparrow shat on Bush at a news conference, right after he said "I've got confidence in Al Gonzales doin' the job." Crooks and Liars has the video.
Deputy White House Press Secretary Dana Perino immediately noted that "everyone knows that's a sign of good luck."
I'm sorry, I'm not an augur, but I can't imagine how a bird shitting on you is lucky.
Yes, that pretty much sums up the Bush administration: a bird shits on the President, and the press secretary says it's a sign of good fortune.
