“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.”
Watch the video (and yes, the birds in the background were really that loud):
See ABC’s video.

UPDATE: Keith Olbermann: “Must’ve been a dove.”
Rick Perlstein quotes Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.”
