There were lots of Angler questions today at the White House press conference but not many answers from Dana Peroxide leading to this remark by Helen Thomas…

We (?) should get someone out here who can answer our questions

    I’m pretty sure it’s “we”, but either way Helen is right on.

    And you’ll notice that Dana carefully chooses not to respond.
    It’s Dana’s whole schtick — also Ponyboy’s — to claim not to know anything, not to have looked anything up, not to have any expertise or even any knowledge of anything.
    About time someone called her on it! Yay, Helen!

    We need a secular American version of sainthood. (No, I’m not talking about the Medal of Freedom.) And Helen Thomas should be the first recipient.

    It’s not schtick. Peroxide and Pony Blow are so far from the decision making process it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference what they say from the podium. You are more likely to get an honest opinion from this White House on thread on Free Republic (where I’m sure most of the workers post) then you will from the WH press secretary. They’re not acting like they don’t know shit – they don’t know shit by design.
    Scottie was grandfathered in to the circle and Ari was a traditional press secretary put in place pre-9/11 before the press was started doing it’s spot on impression of veal. This new batch (Blow, Peroxide) are to real Press Secretaries what a Fisher-Price steering wheel is to a real steering wheel. The Fisher-Price steering wheel has a pretty horn and some cool guages but it’s not actually hooked up to any car. Similarly Blow and Peroxide aren’t really hooked up to the White House. Pony Blow especially is just doing exactly what he did on the radio and TV – reading the faxed talking points he got at Fox.
    Wait until press secretary 3.0 comes out – Gordon Johndroe. He’s a high school dropout that was raised as Bush’s personal aide. That guy isn’t even going to speak english from the podium – it’s just going to be a neverending flow of Bushspeak that is more like speaking in tongues than English.
