The press corps sucks. It really, really, REALLY sucks. Really.
From today's Li'l Scottie McClellan press gaggle (and you have to wonder how much longer he can hold out before he has a meltdown and resigns to, uh ... spend more time with his family, yeah, that's it, more time with his family), we have this jaw-dropping exchange related to a recently-unearthed memo in which 1st Lt. George W. Bunnypants is ordered to take a physical:
Q :This was a direct order he defied, right? I mean, he did have a direct order that he defied?
MR. McCLELLAN: John, these issues have come up every year...
F**k, no, they haven't!! This is about a memo that no one has ever seen before, so it's clearly impossible for it to have "come up every year". And does anyone in the gaggle bother to point this out? Hint: no.
