WH Pool Report: You Are Getting Verrrrry Sleeeepy
In this White House pool report, Karl Rove gets all cryptic and shit:
At one point, Reuters reporter Adam Entous felt a tap on his shoulder. It was Rove, who handed him a small bottle of Tylenol PM pills. "You look like you could use this," Entous said Rove told him.A signal? A code? Does it mean that the media has been caught napping? Or could it mean that Rove thinks reporters have been staying up to late? Staying up too late plotting his downfall, and thus he would like them to sleep. He's a wily one, boys, better hire a food-taster!
Or maybe this whole investigation is just a big headache.
Full report after the jump.

Pool Report #2, 7/15/05
Yarn plant tour.
]The streets of Belmont were lined with onlookers on the way to the yarn factory. Some waved American flags.
The plant tour lasted less than 10 minutes. Bush was escorted into the factory's "laydown" area, where big bales of raw cotton awaited their fate on the assembly line. Bush paused, grabbed a small clump of cotton, rolled it in his fingers. It apparently met with his approval. He put it back and moved on.
We then jogged through the big plant's carding, spinning and winding areas, where huge machines transformed the cotton into finished yarn. Bush paused briefly to talk to a black-capped worker standing, appropriately enough, next to a gigantic spinner, which turned cotton strands into yarn and wound it onto hundreds of multicolored spindles.
At one point, Reuters reporter Adam Entous felt a tap on his shoulder. It was Rove, who handed him a small bottle of Tylenol PM pills. "You look like you could use this," Entous said Rove told him.
The tour began at 12:27 p.m. and ended at 12:35. We are currently on our way to Gaston College in Dallas, where Bush will deliver his CAFTA speech.
