Shaded Meanings in Cabinet Meeting
Some post-Cabinet meeting hilarity this morning, according to White House transcripts, beginning with Bush's acknowledgment of Nedra Pickler's Toby Zakaria's bitchin' sunglassses:
THE PRESIDENT: Fine-looking shades you got there.That's right, we wait for natural disasters to strike before sending Laura Bush out with the Sears Caravan to appear on "Extreme Makeover." Decorum, people, decorum.
Q Thanks, Mr. President. Bono style. (Laughter.)
THE PRESIDENT: Wait a minute, you don't need to be endorsing any products here in the Cabinet -- (laughter.)
Speaking of product placement, a listener to DC's "Elliot in the Morning" is claiming that she and her friends were booted from their front-row seats at last weekend's U2 show to make room for Condoleezza Rice. But we bet they were really nice boots.
UPDATE: Shades the property Toby Zakaria. Says our WH operative: "She's a reporter for Reuters. She said she had just been to the eye doctor and her eyes were dilated." Riiiight.
