White House Briefing Room Just A Nest Of Lunatics

Robert Gibbs To Ban Jake Tapper, From Life

Here's America's favorite traveling Bob Saget impersonator, ABC News' Jake Tapper, sort of... yeah... destroying Robert Gibbs with relative ease. Gibbs ends Tapper's time by ignoring his question, ha. Was "Gibbsy" really the best choice for this job, hmm?...

There are many video versions of this scene floating around tonight, as Barack Obama actually walked through this subterranean hell bunker to talk to these White House press reporters and photographers and videographers. It's a happy scene of serfs...

Reporter Complains That Obama Plane Is Smelly

Dean Reynolds sat down and penned this long angry rant about what a sack of douches the Obama campaign staffers are, while all the McCain people are helpful and informed. This jibes pretty squarely with Wonkette editorial impressions of...

Media Standoff! Press (Almost) Boycotts Sarah Palin At The U.N.

That gal with the lipstick is going to meet with Important World Leaders at the UN today, so naturally the McCain campaign did not want any reporters anywhere near that disaster. They said, "OK all you press organizations can...

Press Will Never Get To Ask Sarah Palin Any Questions, Because She’s Studying

Two weeks before Sarah Palin will talk to anyone. It's like cramming for the LSAT in two weeks, except in this case, the LSAT is "the entirety of foreign and domestic United States policy," which has nothing to do...
