Obama's "evil eye"

It must be a slow day at the Drudge Report. The big headline: "BEWARE THE OBAMA 'EVIL EYE'":

As the summer begins, White House watchers have spotted a new look by President Obama: The Evil Eye!

Staffers have joked about the menacing glance, which comes when the president meets with world leaders who are not aligned with his progressive view.

White House photographers have captured the "evil eye" in recent weeks, during sessions with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Colombia's Alvaro Uribev.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi got hit with the commander's malocchio last week in the Oval office.

And at least one White House reporter has been on the receiving end of the daggers during a press conference.
As they say, "Developing."

They have obviously never met my mother. She still gives errant souls "the look". That look used to stop us kids in our tracks. We were just grateful that she never put 100% into "the look", otherwise we feared we'd be stretched lifeless on the carpet.

Benny Goodman had what musicians called "The Ray," a look he gave errant musicians.

It amused me that with all the real news yesterday, Drudge was touting an "evil eye" story. Nothing new about that strategy though — a few weeks ago, he was pushing the claim that Obama was insulting Israel by talking with his feet on his desk.
