My buddy Nichelle of Anovelista sent me this photo and it cracked. me. UP!! Ha haaaaa! If that isn’t what we Trinis call a “cut eye,” I don’t know what is.

The caption reads as follows: “US President George W. Bush (C) leans over to talk with a girl (R) after Bush participated in a lesson for young children on the importance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day during a tour of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC, 21 January 2008. By Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty.”

It’s been posted over at Andrew Sullivan’s Daily Dish.

Little girl, I don’t know who you are… but thanks for making my Tuesday morning brighter. I needed a good belly laugh to kick off what’s bound to be a busy day.

That's definitely a "you are in my personal space, and I don't know you like that, president or no president" look -- wow. Definitely made me smile.

Lord! I am HOWLING over here! I know that's right, little girl. If I ever met him, I'd be giving him serious "Madam", too (that's what we call the 'side eye' in my family).

This is why the pic is so funny... I didn't even read the caption or anything else to know, that the only grey-haired white man she could have possibly looked at that way, was our president.

I see I'm not the only Southern chick in the house. I received more than one pinch from my Grandma for "cutting my eyes" at her like the kid in the picture.

Yes, I don't know who gets the award for side-eye of the year, her or that cute little baby that was a viral sensation a month or so back. HILARIOUS. I TOTALLY feel her.

She can see right through the bullsh*t!! Classic! There's another one with Hillary that's been floating around... same kind of situation. I've been looking for it to post on my blog. A link on another blog I read sent me to yours, and I thought I'd find it here. And instead saw this one. Cheers!
