While watching Fridays White House Daily Briefing on WhiteHouse.gov, my eye was drawn to the thumbnail for this weekss West Wing Week video, and I thought to myself, in faux-outraged wingnut voice, Oh, so I guess West Wing Week is essential, but death benefits arent, huh? Huh?!?
As if by psychokinesis, mere seconds later, ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl made the exact same joke to Press Secretary Jay Carney. He was joking, right?
With apologies to Josh, can you explain to me how it is that West Wing Week is still being produced? Karl asked. I mean, is that really a central government service that is not shut down as part of the shutdown?
Carney was not as amused as I was, replying I would refer you to the Office of Management and Budget in terms of what
They dont mention the weekly video webcast, Karl cut in.

jay is such a little dweeb
I guess it all depends upon what the meaning of “is” is.
Jay Carney is the love child of Baghdad Bob and Doogie Howser.
I’d love to see someone, I know this is dilusional, reach over the dais and grab him and stretch his neck about 4 inches during one of these snooty smug PR briefing/lies/obfuscations he does.
I am so sick of this gang of criminals, can’t someone get us out of this mess
I understand he is married to Claire Shipman.
Cozy, ain’t it?
I have the PopEye syndrome.
All I can stands and I can't stands NO MO.
The DC power players are married or partnered with other power players. This is one big reason the whole ship is so hard to correct.
This has been entrenched into our government for so many years you will never fix it. Just the Clintonites alone will be there 15 or 20 more yrs.
Dunno about videos, but I heard that Obama will have the WH renovated again.
There will be NO West Wings, only East Wings.
And turn the whole building to face Mecca.
Just keep taking Popeye’s advice...
I’m strong to the finish, cause I eats me spinach.
“All I can stands and I can’t stands NO MO.”
Thems fighting words, when confronted by a gov’t bully.
Popeye fights with spinach, we fight with Constitution.
Claire Shipmam looks a little like Baghdad’s Bob. Perhaps his daughter.
What else would you expect from a devout muslim?
Propaganda has a very high priority for the Zero King.
Under Jimmy Carter: Jody Powell
Under Ronald Reagan: James Brady, Larry Speakes & Marlin Fitzwater
Under George H.W. Bush: Marlin Fitzwater
Under Bill Clinton: Dee Dee Myers, George Stephanopoulos, Mike McCurry, Joe Lockhart & Jake Siewert
Under George W. Bush: Ari Fleischer, Scott McClellan, Tony Snow & Dana Perino
Under Barack Obama: Robert Gibbs & Jay Carney
The Press Secretaries under Republican Administrations were mainly interested in giving out the news while those under the Democratic Administrations are purely political hacks only interested in advancing the political objectives of the Liberal Democrat Agenda
Carney has to keep up the defensive lines - he was promised that after he administered enough Lewinskys, he would finally be on the other end...
Scott McClellan always struck me as the personification of the Peter Principle.
Wait just a minute! Peter Principle? We do not allow... that kind of obscene talk in the White House Press Room!
Yeah, shove, old Scott wasn't the brightest bulb in the chandelier... but he was miles above what the Democrats have offered up--
Wait Bendy, you’ve incorrectly posed Scotty in the Baghdad Bob configuration. The Rat spokesliars all graduated from the Baghdad Bob School of Journalism. Scotty was not a liar, he was just struggling to do a job a click or two above his level of competence.
