Just in case you didn’t see this, the Secretary of the Interior the other day threatened to punch out a reporter.
Boy, between Obama defending Susan Rice against her accusers at his press conference Wednesday – “they’ve got a problem with me” – and Ken Salazar, there sure are a lot of tough guys in this administration.
That’s okay, reporters are used to getting a little hostility.
I think the main things reporters need to learn in the fancy journalism schools many attend are shorthand and kung fu.
Our moronic quote of the day comes from Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. Salazar was recently quoted getting his Yogi Berra on in the Washington Post, which ran the quote without any hint of irony. He was making excuses for President Obama’s lack of attention to conservation. Said he:
“This has been a very time-consuming four years.”
Well, come to think of it, yes, Mr. Salazar is right. It has been a time consuming four years. It’s taken up, uhh, let’s see . . . about four years.
