DEALING WITH UPPITY REPORTERS, PLAN B
Image hosted by TinyPic.com After having its plant-a-fake-journalist(gay pornographer)-in-the-briefing-room tactic outed by that pesky liberal press, the White House adopts Plan B, also known as the "threaten them with a camel prod" plan.

Ok, so my prediction about last night's primetime presser didn't come true, but we did get a welcome addition to the DUHbya files: "It's in our country's interest to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm's way." Nice. (thx again Wonkette)

The president also uttered this 'no-shit' beauty: "I'm sure there are some people that don't like me." Un-huh. You know who really doesn't like you today Mr. President? Fans of The OC, that's who. Pre-empting American primetime television is the ultimate sin – but pre-empting it to talk about such inane and unimportant topics as Iraq, social security and the burgeoning energy crisis? Feh! Bush may as well have pissed on John Wayne's grave and spit in Babe Ruth's eye.

While Bush did leave OCists out on a ledge, he spared Paris Hilton and Donald Trump fans, proving he does know he's core constituency: the dumb and the rich. Besides, the OC already kinda hated him anyway.
