NEWS: McCain Article from

My comment made it onto a CNN page (yeah... woo... i know... (but still...)). It's an article about McCain at a pro-Israel forum, criticizing Obama about his Middle East something something *shrug* (I don't really care). What struck me was the picture.

Two thumbs up?...

My comment:

"'Thumbs up' traditionally translates as the foulest of gesticular insults in some Middle Eastern countries — the most straightforward interpretation is 'Up yours, pal!' according to Roger E. Axtell's book Gestures: The Do's and Taboos of Body Language Around the World."

Nice job with the picture of McCain giving the double thumbs-up...
Well, at least he didn't try to give anyone a back-rub.
