Here's a delightful video by washingtonpost.com blogger Mary Ann Akers about what she quite correctly calls "one of the weirder places in Washington": the White House Briefing Room.

Akers looks at the supporting cast of zany characters who inhabit the place. "These are people who aren't necessarily affiliated with any news organization -- they might be journalists, they might not be -- they come here because they really like to hang out here at the White House."

I wrote about wacky denizens of the briefing room past and present in this column four years ago.
