The ‘Terrorist Fist Jab’

Before delivering his victory speech, Barack Obama bumped fists with his wife, Michelle Obama, a victorious/well-wishing gesture.

It was — at worst — harmless, at best, adorable. Since truth usually lies between the fringe extremes, let’s just agree that it was a personal gesture between two individuals, something no one fully understands but them. Certainly, it’s not something to be discussed and analyzed on FOX news, right? I’m sure we can all agree it’s not something the network should, say, pay a body language expert to discuss.

…Right?

There’s just so much to talk about in this election season: the Iraq war, America’s standing in the world, the economy, immigration, torture, domestic spying, a swollen Executive branch, the impeachment of the Bush administration. I mean, gosh, our time is just too valuable to talk about this “terrorist fist jab.”

Which, by the way, is exactly how FOX describes the gesture.
