Via infojunkies:

Letterman airs clip of kid caught yawning on tape during Bush speech. White House says clip is faked. Letterman calls White House liars. You be the judge.

Yes, it seems so. Though this is egregiously stupid.

Maybe... I understand CNN is now saying that they said it was faked (never mind the anchor saying this came from the prez). Somebody lied somewhere, but there is some doubt as to whether the liar was at CNN or in DC. Or perhaps CNN is taking the fall. (dons tinfoil hat) Anyway, it's good fodder for Dave to play with. I hope he gets the kid on his show.

True--maybe they're both lying. But given that the administration was caught faking news stories, I could see them lying about something like this. On the other hand, it seems an incredibly stupid thing to lie about, by either party, given the surfeit of corroborating evidence that must exist. So maybe it's just a gaffe.

In any case, I'd like to see the kid on Letterman too.

Bugger-he made it on but I missed it... Letterman's got it on his site:

That is pretty funny, but looking at the mannerisms of the kid, it seems like he might be retarded. It's most obvious when he claps.

Have you ever watched a child clap?

Then you know what I'm talking about. Children often look like they're imitating a behavior they do not understand when they're clapping.

Possibly, but for a kid that (apparent) age, I would have expected much more coordination and understanding of their actions.

Hmmm...possibly, but I don't thinks so. He's too coordinated. Also, how many retarded kids can tell time? If he is retarded, he's only mildly so.

I think he's just tired and bored, so he's not particularly careful about clapping.
