grinning like the cheshire cat....way over his head.....i guess the gravitas of the 'today show' has elevated him to this aloof position.

3. He belittles waitresses and wait staff, Russert didn't like Gregory either.
Did David Gregory almost lose his shot at getting his show on MSNBC?
About a month ago, he joined NBC colleague Tim Russert at a Washington D.C. restaurant for dinner, where he showed his lack of appreciation for the help. David Gregory: Not a consummate dining companion?

The twosome's waitress somehow messed up their dinner order, and Gregory who CBS is supposedly "enamored" with in their hunt for a Katie Couric replacement let's say, caustically reminded her how bad she erred.

But the server wasn't the only one who got a scolding: Russert chewed Gregory out for his tactless behavior. "Russert warned Gregory never to behave that way in front of him again," says a spy.
And once MSNBC got wind of the story, they made Gregory "promise up and down to change his behavior" before they handed him the 6pm slot, we're told. Not to mention that this incident is not, we're assured, the first time Gregory has chewed out a less-than-competent service employee.

David Gregory the Diva

White House correspondents like to describe their colleague NBC News's David Gregory as a "bit of a showboat." They recount, for instance, the time he ordered a Cape Cod cocktail on a press charter plane--then sent it back four times to achieve the ideal ratio of vodka to cranberry juice. Sticking with the air-travel theme, they note that his luggage tends to fill two overhead storage compartments. "He has a kind of traveling wardrobe," one reporter explains. And when, on his birthday, Gregory affixed to his backpack a bunch of balloons that read "You're Great!", reporters joked that he had bought them for himself.

Watching Gregory joust with President Bush and his spokesmen, you can see the genesis of this punch line. When he broke into French to question Jacques Chirac at a joint presidential press conference, Bush interjected, "The guy memorizes four words, and he plays like he's intercontinental."
