I read the transcript of Mr. President Bush's press conference from last night, and I have never loved Mr. President Bush more.
Where do I begin on how great He is? Any and all answers would have to be incomplete, but I most liked the fact that, in an obvious tribute to Jeff Gannon, or maybe just press conference traditions, the questions asked were weak and Mr. President Bush still didn't answer them. This is wonderful and shows how great Mr. President Bush is because reporters who participated in this charade don't deserve answers and it is just plain stupid and dumb to think a public that tolerates this sort of politics and reporting somehow even might deserve better answers.
On a less satirical note, I would like to say that most hillarious bit about this event has been the controversy about the networks bumping the end of the press conference. They never should have aired it. Given the time constraints, and the way most news organizations cover and behave during these events, it was destined a pep rally for the Bush.
