Is the WH trying to kill the press corps in an air crash???
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A26935-20...

Now for an update on the White House's ongoing effort to kill the press corps. The White House travel office signed a contract last week with an airline called Primaris to fly the press corps to Bush events. The two-month-old company has only one airplane. True, media representatives gave their blessing to the deal. But that was before they learned that the company's president twice had his pilot's license revoked related to his flying of an "unairworthy" aircraft, that the chief executive flopped in his last attempt to start an airline and that the 15-year-old plane itself was damaged in a hailstorm a decade ago and spent most of the past two years mothballed in France.

The phrase killing two birds with one stone comes to mind.

3. Why would they? The administration owns the press corps.
Its not like anyone is questioning the White House or speaking out. They are all a bunch of worthless sycophants.

5. Think "severed horsehead under your blanket", it's merely a warning
as they "turn the corner" into the stretch run of the campaign.

7. Well, as long as Bush isn't running the company...
there's less of a chance of it running into the ground (pardon the pun).

12. I wouldn't get on that plane.
Forget it! I would give up my job first. I wonder if the chimp's cabal would fly on it?
