Press Room Laughter Dies Down (no more chuckles for Gibbs)
Polito.com ^ | 2/10/2010 | PATRICK GAVIN

Posted on 02/10/2010 6:24:51 AM PST by SonOfDarkSkies

"There definitely aren't a lot of laughs around the briefing room these days," says Washington Examiner White House correspondent Julie Mason. "Robert's little digs and evasions have lost their power to amuse — particularly since we haven't had a presser since July."

The thrill is gone. The Press left out in the cold, they aint laughing at the lame jokes. The MSM is acting like a jilted lover.

Gibbs is the master of evasions, of the passive aggressive and the put down. I’ll admit this maggot has been pretty effective

Looks like his charm has worn off

Hey lamestreams! What took you so long??? The only thing to laugh at in that press room is how STOOPID Gibbs looks standing up there with the misconception that he knows what he’s doing.

The thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away
You know you done me wrong baby
And you’ll be sorry someday

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away from me
The thrill is gone baby
The thrill is gone away from me
Although I’ll still live on
But so lonely I’ll be

The thrill is gone
It’s gone away for good
Oh, the thrill is gone baby
Baby its gone away for good
Someday I know I’ll be over it all baby
Just like I know a man should

You know I’m free, free now baby
I’m free from your spell
I’m free, free now
I’m free from your spell
And now that it’s over
All I can do is wish you well

In the comments there's a pretty good piece of poetry by "Indebtforever" (not me) -

Press corp(se) haiku:

Glib idiot Gibbs

Laugh while you can, monkey boy

November awaits..




The poll question is also over 90% against Gibbs' behavior.

Bwaaaahahahaha!!!

yesterday when Gibbs, who serves an empty suit and two teleprompters, was trying to parody Palin’s hand notes, the laughter was feeble

Gibbs all but put a lamp shade on his head

They are laughing at him. Not with him

I want to start a trend -

whenever you’re talking to a lib, do the “tennis head” impression.

When they ask why you’re doing that, tell them you understood that talking in such a way makes you appear to be smarter to libs.

Yeah, that's why I think the 4 words written on Obama's hand are:

'Look left, Look right'.

Glad to hear that. And when the big O turned up in the press room to answer questions he got loud groans when he called on chucktoad.

Instead of ignoring it, he pointed it out, making it more obvious that the other reporters do not consider toad a legitimate journalist given his home at msnbc.

"Robert's little digs and evasions have lost their power to amuse — particularly since we haven't had a presser since July."

I guess it is still ALL ABOUT THEM, isn't it? As if "give us a presser and we will continue to be amused and spread your lies..."

The media is an absolute joke. They prop this numbskull up like no other president in my memory. And I thought the drooling over Bill Clinton was slavish.

Obama sends out Robert Gibbs
Whose job is to tell lies and fibs,
The bull he still shoots
Is no longer so cute
And his sarcasm is even ticking off libs.

I would like to see anyone in the press develop a story that would describe just exactly where the discretionary income would come from that would allow their subscribers to buy their newspapers with severly reduced discretionary income.

It woud seem to me that the newspapers should support all attempts to increase discretionary income because their industry depends on it for subscriber fees and their advertisers depend on it to stay in business and to buy more advertising.

Supporting and administration that has pledged to increase taxes and reduce discretionary income is nothing short of suicide for that industry.

I have seen and worked in industries that were managed poorly but I have never seen a suicidal industry like this. It boggles the mind.

I would like to know if when Gibbs says, “I do not know, I will find out the answer”...does he ever? Does he get back to the reports that ask questions he is unsure of....?

It sounded like a lot of them laughed when Gibbs was mocking Sarah Palin with the handwriting on his palm. Some of the analysts have tried to say it was feeble or guilty laughter. There seem to have been some groans too, maybe more because of the juvenile level of the humor than out of any sympathy for Sarah Palin (a private citizen being mocked by the official spokesman of the President of the United States).

As they were saying on "Fox and Friends," Gibbs probably didn't do this on his own but got Obama's OK ahead of time--on the same day that Obama was posturing about bipartisanship.

This story is a prime example of how ridiculous the media is today. First off, this entire story isn't news worthy in the least and a waste of time that demonstrates how out of touch the reporters and the people whom they cover area. Secondly, though reading coverage of the windbag Gibbs may make you sick to your stomach, understand that this is exactly what we need. His arrogance is only rivaled by his President's. Any rational American would easily become ill while watching this guy engage in yet another cheap political ploy to the tune of maniacal laughter while this country's economy goes to crap. Unbeknownst to these “journalists”, this story typifies exactly what the American people are so tired of. Keep up the good work ignorant media!

Every time they mention Palin they just elevate her to an equivalent stature with Odumbo. It just shows how deep of a hole they have dug for themselves.
