Gaggle Bonus: Coalition Problems and Some Extra Snark

From Holden:

Coalition Problems:

Q Costa Rica has demanded to be taken off a list of the coalition. Do you have anything to say about that? Have you heard from them directly?


Q Are you going to take them off the White House list on the website?

MR. McCLELLAN: I’m sure if that’s what — I’m not aware of any official communication with the United States on this matter. But, like I said, every country can make their own decision and has to make their own decision. If they want to be removed, then I’m sure we would.

Now, some delicious snark:

MR. MCCLELLAN: Consider the source.

Q He was Vice President, last I looked.
