Purple Finger, Brown Nose

God. I have to say that the purple finger imagery from this speech is the lamest attempt at political theater since, well, the President landed on an aircraft carrier, dressed in a flight suit, and prematurely declared Mission Accomplished. For some reason it reminded me of Tobias on Arrested Development, and how he got blue paint all over the place, while waiting to be called back by the Blue Man Group. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I pity you. Update: If you were lucky enough to miss the speech, Rising-Hegemon has pictures of the Purple Fingerers (scroll down a bit).
