About that photo of Obama at the G8 Summit...

The "internets" is all abuzz over a photo that is being heavily promoted and talked about concerning President Obama supposedly gawking over the backside of a young woman at the G8 Summit.

Case in point is coverage from the Fox News Channel, Fox Nation and the Drudge Report. There has been a lot of website nattering over the photo, even after Fox News reporter Greta Van Susteren exposed it as a "misleading" photo.

Obama is simply pausing to let another woman walk down the stairs. You can see the whole video here, showing that is was French President Nicholas Sarkozy doing the leering.

Even the Rupert Murdoch-owned New York Post had to backtrack after it was exposed that the photo was misleading.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you have nothing to say, stop banging the table.
