John McCain should like this, he likes to make jokes like this too

This is what happens when being a towel-snapping frat boy is regarded by the media and too many Americans as the primary qualification for the presidency:

President George Bush signed off with a defiant farewell over his refusal to accept global climate change targets at his last G8 summit.

As he prepared to fly out from Japan, he told his fellow leaders: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

President Bush made the private joke in the summit's closing session, senior sources said yesterday. His remarks were taken as a two-fingered salute from the President from Texas who is wedded to the oil industry. He had given some ground at the summit by saying he would "seriously consider" a 50 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2050.


I'd say it was more of a one-finger salute. Sort of like this one:
