The Facts Machine

"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Monday, October 31, 2005


Early this morning, I wrote: "I expect, nay, demand a series of questions from the White House press corps regarding what it is about Bush's new nominee that made Bush pass over him/her in favor of Harriet Miers in the first place. As long as they're gonna try to change the subject, let's see them squirm."

Well, CBS News reporter John Roberts was up to the task at this morning's press gaggle. The only problem was, he didn't exactly phrase the question in the way I would have.
“Scott, you said that – or the President said, repeatedly, that Harriet Miers was the best person for the job. So does that mean Alito is sloppy seconds, or what?”
Whoa there, Bessie!

File this one next to Howard Dean's "hide the salami" quote on Meet the Press.
