  1. If I understand McClellan correctly, he blames the press for being complicit in not digging up the truth about what the Bush administration has been up to all these years. Has he offered up any suggestions on what they might do in order to quit playing the patsy to the Bush administration’s con man?

    It seems to me that one of the first things that ought to be done is to do away with White House press briefings altogether. The very structure of these briefings seems to be part of the problem: everybody wants to ask questions, and nobody wants to be frozen out from future briefings by asking the wrong, hard questions today. So nothing but softballs get lobbed at the Press Secretary. Let the White House just issue press releases and be done with it.

    If they want to keep the press briefings going, then make the President come out and have the guts to tell his own damn lies, instead of assigning some lower level Press Secretary flunkie to do it for him. Make the President personally accountable for the stories that get put out by the press.

    If the press doesn’t want to be the President’s patsy any longer when it comes to lying to the American citizens, they should just flat out refuse to show up at any further press briefings. Declare them as being obsolete propaganda tools, and that the press is no longer going to cooperate. Make them dig for the stories instead of just parroting to the public whatever the lies are today that the administration wants them to hear.

  2. A better cartoon of the day is the following:

    Is anyone else here as disgusted as I am with the entire US government’s prostration before the Jewish Lobby?
