Any reaction from the WH correspondents? Are they applauding? Glad Colbert is nailing this crew.

Edited on Sat Apr-29-06 10:02 PM by ocelot
If they are seen laughing too hard they will probably be sent to a back seat in the WH briefing room and not called on, like what happened to Helen Thomas.

64. Quite a few shots of the repukes with "WTF?" sneers on their stone cold
faces - not a smile amongst the bunch of media whores.

The rest are quietly LAUGHING QUITELY TO THEMSELVES!

No chit-chat or posing for pictures, it was time to go back into hiding where they belong. Those two deserve each other.

43. You all missed Clinton's 2000 speech.
You know, the one where he shows this movie about his last days in which he has the Ameritrade geek show him how to use eBay, and then Bill shows him how to get free ice cream bars out of the machine. You've all seen the video, but the speech was priceless. Bill had people in stitches, even as he roasted Tim Russert, the Republicans, the Independent Counsel, and himself. I miss having a President with a real sense of humor.
