Emergent Transparency, American Style

Many poker players have a "tell" - a little tic or mannerism that allows other players to know when something's up, either a bluff or a flush. President Bush has a "tell" - it's that little smirk that he works so hard to control during news conferences. It's particularly "telling" when he gets "real earnest-like."

Have a look at the way he bowls over White House Press Corps veteran, Helen Thomas, in this video [wmv; qt-version] and watch for the tell-smirk. Then read the "transparency" version corroboration of the president's "tell."

I wonder how many pairs of asbestos underwear he owns...
