Damn those pesky reporters!

Don't sit on the edge of your seat expecting anytime soon to see a repeat of Wednesday's 'grilling' of White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs.

For those of you who can be torn away from news of the day regarding demise of Michael Jackson (obligatory apology for insensitivity "....and we all regret the passing of a man so early in his prime...blah, blah, blah, etc.") Yes, other movements and motions are taking place on a daily basis since this regrettable news was learned late last week.

During Wednesday's White House news conference, President Barack Obama's press secretary Robert Gibbs was central to a rare oddity--a few 'hard-hitting' questions from, of all people, members of the White House press corp, or as I like to refer to them, "White House props." Interrogating the usual giddy Gibbs, he pulled a 'Pelosi,' telling these drifters off the reservation that the questions would be answered at another time, of course, designated by him.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi managed to temporarily dodge the bullet a few weeks back by using these very tactics stating, she will entertain no more questions on that topic (her earlier charges that the CIA is a bunch of liars). Of course, its not unusual for monarchs of the left to act in such a condescending manner. After all they are, following their own coronation, the political elite and how dare anyone question their authority.

So for those of you who got a sudden tingle of excitement when a few media-types actually posed questions of merit to the President's representative, break out the muscle relaxants and return to your muted positions. That's why the 'Right' is so top heavy with losers--their heads are always in the clouds, looking for rays of sunshine to enter their otherwise dark and murky days. With all due respect ('cause I'm in the mix there somewhere), the 'Left' is, by definition destined for that designation, so don't try to follow its perpetual misdirected lead!

Betting you 'a dime to a dollar,' this will be the last serious discussion you'll hear on these topics, and perhaps you'll see a few more voided areas in the news conference room, vacated for, what else, 'new White House props!'
