That American politicianthing where they point into the crowd at a rally with sudden completely fake look of recognition and a barely mouthed 'Heeeeeeeeeey!!' is so bloody annoying, no???

Yes - it is quite weird. Only a matter of time before they start doing it over here too.

its a JFK trick apprently
blair did it too
they look up ina kind of semi fascist aslute

moondog Mon 25-Aug-08 20:13:50

Interesting re JFK. Isuppose spin doctors say 'Look you may be in Hulahicknee, Nowheresville, Wisconsin but you gotta make 'em believe that you are their buddy so di it Mr President.'

Am going to watch every one of 'em now. Yes,can see Blair doing it.

Yes! Every second photo of Hillary in the Primaries had her doing that, with an added maniacal grin. Most disconcerting...

moondog Mon 25-Aug-08 20:32:14

I can't bear Hillary. So brittle.

ShittyCatsLawyer Mon 25-Aug-08 20:32:47

i read an article on it once

ditto jacketless ness

moondog Mon 25-Aug-08 20:39:34

She's done it agian!!! (Sky news)
Jacket issue also worthy of note. Suggests shifty politician is regular chap, who can get down to business, whether that involves changing diapers, sinking Coors on neighbours porch or pitching for Little League.

" am nromal man , need food to functionm tkae GINAT bites out of hearty bef sarnie"

you asnd me dog
we oculd be campaign pundits on american tv

moondog Mon 25-Aug-08 20:42:41

I do like him though.

(You'd have thought with all $$$ that has gone into Hillary's makeover they could have sorted out size of her arse though. She's a heifer.)

You mean like *this*?

ShittyCatsLawyer Mon 25-Aug-08 20:44:05

moondog Mon 25-Aug-08 20:52:07

That is it exactly Twoif!!
Aye, the odd arse is unshiftable. I know one or two like that come to think of it. V v unfortunate.

(What is significanc eof woman with obama? Is that Michelle before she did a reverse jacko???)

moondog Tue 26-Aug-08 20:37:28

Two new variationstonight:

1.) After pointing into crowd with unbridled delight and recognition, she points back to her ear and jabs repeatedly.
'I will phone you'?
'How is the ear infection'?

2.) After pointing etc and etc, follow 'Heeeeeeey' with a special mouthed five word message only destined for Chose One.

Silly cow.

And what is having your daughter introduce you all about? hmm
How come the Americans swallow this shit?

TheCrackFox Wed 27-Aug-08 17:22:04

Do you think they actually recognise anyone in the audience? I think they don't and it is all one big charade.

moondog Wed 27-Aug-08 17:23:12

Yes, that's it.

sagacious Wed 27-Aug-08 17:25:33

I agree with the OP.
I do dislike the ending of a question with the word no?
