(Newser) – A video of President Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy at yesterday's "Junior 8" G8 event has Matt Drudge and his buddies in a lather, but it's not quite as incriminating as a still photo makes it out to be, John Cook blogs for Gawker. "We undertook a Zapruder treatment" that exonerates Obama in the Case of the Surreptitious Check-Out, he writes.

Cook's painstaking breakdown reveals that:

  • The apparent object of his attention "was not in Obama's field of vision prior to the initiation of his head-turn," which means he wasn't "turning his head to get a better look."
  • To see "what it looks like when someone takes a gander of a lady's ass," the person to concentrate on is Sarkozy, not Obama.
  • The key conclusion: "The photograph appears to show Obama craning his neck to check out Woman B's ass, when in fact the moment is a chance alignment of ass and visual field that any man knows as a freebie."
