Video of Bush and the Yawning Boy

Watch amusing footage of President Bush speaking at a campaign rally while in the background a 13-year-old boy is seen yawning uncontrollably, twisting his head from side to side, checking his watch, and looking thoroughly bored.
David Letterman sparked a political uproar when he aired this video clip of Tyler Crotty (AKA the "Yawning Boy" and the "Bored Bush Boy") battling to stay awake during a Bush campaign speech. CNN reported that the White House accused Letterman of doctoring the video, but later backed off the claim. This is the original video clip Letterman aired as part of a segment titled "George W. Bush Invigorating America's Youth."
