Posted on 07/01/2004 1:47:06 PM PDT by ConservativeMajority
At Thursday's White House press briefing, Press Secretary Scott McClellan talked about the East Room event being held later that day to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
Since a guest list had not yet been released, reporters were asking who would be attending.
Q Scott, as far as who is going to be there today, we heard that tentatively the daughter of President Johnson would be there.
MR. McCLELLAN: I believe that's correct. We'll get you a list of those who will be attending. And I did see her name on the list. So I suspect she will be there.
Q Elijah Cummings -- is Elijah Cummings --
MR. McCLELLAN: Yes, I believe we reached out to the Congressional Black Caucus, and he will be here representing the Congressional Black Caucus.
MR. McCLELLAN: Let me get you the list. I don't know the entire list, but I do remember those individuals were on there.
Q You said Elijah Cummings?
MR. McCLELLAN: I believe he is attending.
Q And Robert Byrd or Fritz Hollings? They filibustered it.
MR. McCLELLAN: Let me keep moving, Jeff.
This was carried live on CSPIN, CNN, MSNBC.......but not FNC. Pity.
BWA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA!
You stirring the pot again, Jeff?
LOL... I love it!
I confess. I was thinking it and the next thing I knew I was hearing it come out of my mouth.

I am told it will be "new and improved" soon.
From Fritz - "Ya mean dey want me to go to a meetin with all dem Afro-American potentates? Up in da White House. I say, I say ah have to think on that proposition."
