So, the White House Press Secretary said some things that really irritated the Democratic base the other day. I kind of ignored it because I've never been very big on any of the press secretaries, regardless of party. They're spin-meisters, and as we used to say about Tony Snow and Dana Perino, spokes-liars. Robert Gibbs usually comes off better than they did--and he's a damned sight better than Scott McClellan--but I usually just don't care what he has to say.
Then again, Gibbs does speak for the President. Or is it for David Axelrod or for Rahm Emanuel? Whatever. What he said indicates that within the administration, there is a disconnect as to what they think liberals think and want, and the reality. Keith Olbermann thought enough of it to do a Special Comment on Tuesday's Countdown, so this is probably my final word on it. How could I top that?
