I’m sure you came here just to see a disembodied finger, and I won’t disappoint you on that score. The politico in question is Obama’s condescending Press Secretary, Jay Carney, who regularly berates reporters in his quest to subvert and manipulate the truth in service to his master.

Apart from the disembodied finger and the mirror image, you had to know the picture was faked because absolutely no one, not even the Carney himself, would have THREE of the same books by Al Gore (check first shelf left and part of the mirror flip on the right).
