The Day the Press Corps Stopped Pretending to Respect the President
You know it's bad when the press laughs openly at your spin. He is still the president and stuff, you know. From today's presser:
Q Mr. President, you said you don't want to talk about an ongoing investigation, so I'd like to ask you, regardless of whether a crime was committed, do you still intend to fire anyone found to be involved in the CIA leak case? And are you displeased that Karl Rove told a reporter that Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife worked for the Agency on WMD issues?
PRESIDENT BUSH: We have a serious ongoing investigation here. (Laughter.)
Next week they'll bring spitballs.
President, Prime Minister of India Discuss Freedom and Democracy [WhiteHouse.gov; laughter starts at minute 10:00 in the video. It's pretty, uhm, brazen.]
