April Fool's in the White House briefing room:
- MR. McCLELLAN: ...Helen, go ahead.
Q. When is the President going to hold a news conference? He has not tackled any of these issues in an overall news conference, full-scale, since last December 15th. Isn't it about time that we had a time -- chance, that is, to question?
. . .
MR. McCLELLAN: Okay, we will do one later today. Oh, April Fool's, I'm sorry. (Laughter.)
See, he's not actually going to give a press conference! Hilarious. Still, it's not quite as funny as the gag about releasing the records of Cheney's energy task force meetings. . . NOT!
