Saturday Open Thread
I'm gathering mine and will give an unvarnished and unfiltered report sometime this weekend. (I still have some shoe polish reporting to do.)
It's fake! Oh, thank God it's fake.
Sometime last week this picture appeared out of nowhere on one of the Liberal Internets. Of course the BONKERS Left went Bonkers, claiming this proves that abstinence education doesn't work.
But I knew it wasn't true, Hillary. You're not like that Lefty Lohan who practices unmarital sex with countless men, including a guy who is not a real foreigner but pretends to be one on TV. Your abstinence education would never teach you to keep unholy birth control in your clear pink bag.
And I knew it. I knew it because I have the unique ability to spot forgeries, sometimes before they're even created.
So take a deep breath everyone. Our Hillary does NOT know about birth control.
BTW this "Jeff Gannon" blog is some grade A dada humor! Whoever's writing it takes great pains to point out that he's not the real Jeff, Administration Paid Shill number whatever, but rather someone with a great Andy Kaufman sense of humor. If you read the comments you'll see there are people on both sides who are not getting the joke. That's why it's Boss, Daddyo.You want to know what's grade A dada humor? A Deadhead talking about politics, that's what. And secondly, I am NOT Andy Kaufman and I am NOT Daddyo.
After the news broke that Guckert/Gannon was a male prostitute, Democrats in Congress started to cool on the idea of pushing for an investigation. Get that? Sounds like Guckert may have had a non-partisan client list, and boots are shaking on both sides of the isle. Even David Corn seems to be backing off. And all this happened after "Not Jeff Gannon" posted a couple rather strange things about "my weapon" on his blog. Sounds like a threat, to me.I'm not sure what's so strange about a my 7.2 Inch Mini Cougar. Why don't you tell us about your weapon?
Jeff Gannon Blogs
In the fine tradition of NYT reporter Adam Nagourney and other imaginary journalist-type people (we were pretty sure James Wolcott was imaginary too until quite recently, but we were disabused of that notion when he approached Wonkette on behalf of Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter for a Hollywoood-treatment-for-sex negotiation), Talon News reporter Jeff Gannon has a blog! Hey! Try and parse that last sentence! It's only 1:30 and I'm utterly shit-faced. Now I understand why Real Wonkette is always IMing me incoherently in the middle of a workday. But I bet Jeff Gannon is drunk too. Probably with Scott McClellan. At Bachelor's Mill. What were we talking about? —C.S.

NOT WOLF BLITZER: Because one of the things, as you know, that was said is that you had some French New Wave films in your DVD collection. That you frequently purchase them. I don't understand what that is, but maybe you could explain that.
NOT JEFF GANNON: Well, several years ago, before I didn't come to Washington, I received a couple French New Wave DVDs as a secret Santa gift. I never even unwrapped them from the plastic, but I did put Breathless and Contempt among my collection of action films. But no, I would never purchase them. French New Wave films make me sick and I bet John Kerry would have been the first president to enjoy French New Wave films. Not CNN, 2/10/05
I've got invoices, baby. I'm going to tease it to my readers for 48 hours and then you're TOAST Gannon. Toast.
PS Just so you know, several of my friends already have copies of my files. I'm just saying...
1) My chest is NEVER shaved or clipped.
2) My weapon is neither cut nor 8 inches.
3) I will NOT go to the game with you and then take you home.
1) I am still sexy after all these years.
2) I am a shoe polish journalist
3) I am a big fan of Steve Sanders.
4) I go to Church thrice daily
MR. McCLELLAN: Jeff, go ahead.
Q Thank you. With all the reaching out that's going on around here, the President said Thursday in his press conference that he was reaching out to the press corps. What did he mean by that, and why would he feel the need to reach out to a group of supposedly non-partisan people?
MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I think that was a tongue-in-cheek comment that the President made at the beginning of the press conference, and he was showing his outreach efforts by holding that press conference the day after the election was decided.
Q Has he decided to let bygones be bygones --
MR. McCLELLAN: Look, you heard from the President -- you heard from the President in the news conference. The media certainly has an important role to play in keeping the American people informed about the decisions that we make here in Washington, D.C.
Q And despite the role that they tried to play, the President won anyhow. Is there some kind of rapprochement that's going on here?
MR. McCLELLAN: There will be plenty of analysis of the media and critiquing of the media, I'm sure, going forward. And I'll leave that to others to get into. The President has great respect for the job that the press does.
