Chris, please, stop with the tweets. It's grotesque and worthless.

I kicked twitter's tires once. I don't see what all the buzz is about.

I'm investing in hula hoops. The next great thing will be to post savvy pearls of political wisdom while keeping one of those things gyrating about your hips.

Dick Morris and Bill O' Reilly are talking about the presser now. They are complaining about how you know what Obama is going to say ahead of time.

The irony seems to be lost on them.

Michael Fletcher for the American Idol question?

Obama's doing fine with mainstream Americans. Most probably won't even care to watch. They're confident in his ability already...

So conversely, scrivener50, if I don't respond by making fun of you, that means you are way off the mark?

If JakeD, the (apparent) paid reactionary disinformation troll feels the need to respond, you KNOW it's on the money...

Yes, please, Chris -- get one of your fellow WH scribes to ask that question -- and be sure to attribute the source.

Get one of your fellow WH scribes to ask POTUS whether the Army and/or CIA knows if ANY form of radiation was used to "induce weakness and fatigue" in Gitmo detainees, to employ words used in the Senate Armed Services Committee report.

The (eventual) answer could place Gitmo torture in a higher category of horror... and raise questions about the use of radiation "directed energy weapons" here at home.

The Fix will be there, but Fox won't ; )
