THROW THE TRUTH DOWN THE WELL
The President will speak to the press later this morning. Although we make no announcements regarding subject matter, we assure you that nothing the President says will be true in any way, and all statements of fact or policy will be completely denied at a later date.Honestly, while acknowledging the absolute requirement of press access to the President, I wonder why any reporter even bothers asking a question. The "answer" will invariably involve invocations of "freedom" of "democracy" of "good vs. evil," with no chance of honest discourse regarding the economy, foreign policy, or executive power.
Maybe the Colbert approach is the only way to get close to an honest answer, because at least the question'll be such a change-up, Bush won't be able to give the standard paint-by-numbers answer. No wonder there's been a growing backlash against "fake journalists," as well as the usual rants against bloggers.
I think it's time for Ali G or Borat to sit down with Bush.
