Bush and Frogs

I posted a comment to Digby's blog questioning the "Bush blowing up frogs" story, told by an ostensible childhood friend of Bush's and frequently cited by the Democratically inclined as evidence of Bush's early sadism. My comment appears to have been deleted (maybe I should have announced my left wing bona fides first).
I grew up in Midland, TX where springtime frogs were an interesting desert anomaly and someone was always telling stories about someone they knew blowing them up with firecrackers.
I'm not saying Bush isn't sadistic but this is weak anecdotal evidence--there are better examples.
Update: Digby kindly responded to my email and thought my comment's disappearance might have been a Haloscan error.
