Bird attack on George W. Bush


American sparrows

From the USA, ABC’s Ann Compton reports:

Bush In Line of Fire

May 24, 2007 1:50 PM

An outdoor news conference in perfect spring weather, with birds chirping loudly in the magnolia trees, is not without its hazards.

As President Bush took a question Thursday in the White House Rose Garden about scandals involving his Attorney General, he remarked, “I’ve got confidence in Al Gonzales doin’ the job.”

Simultaneously, a sparrow flew overhead and left a splash on the President’s sleeve, which Bush tried several times to wipe off.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Dana Perino promptly put the incident through the proper spin cycle, telling ABC News, “It was his lucky day…everyone knows that’s a sign of good luck.”

This time an (American) sparrow; last time, it was penguins

The Bush administration plans to delist the bald eagle, increasing dangers to this national bird of the USA.

Just when, for the first time in 70 years, bald eagles nest in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Maybe at Bush’s next news conference, a bald eagle will follow the sparrow’s example …
