President Bush's "Oh, Shit" Moment of the Day
Earlier today, we described an exchange at this morning's press conference between President Bush and Peter Wallsten of the Los Angeles Times. President Bush joked about Wallsten's wearing sunglasses while asking his question.
We called it the best exchange of the conference; but it was even better than we thought. A tipster points out:
For what it matters, during the Bush Rose Garden presser this a.m., Wallsten was wearing shades because he is legally blind -- a fact that Bush apparently didn't know, or forgot, about one of the reporters covering him for one of America's major newspapers.
Way to go, Mr. President.
Latest update: President Bush has apologized to Wallsten.
