Being a Prick II

Here is White House press secretary Robert Gibbs' brilliant response to Rick Santelli's comments. Initially, I thought that Santelli was a trader; he is, in fact, a right wingnut prick of a reporter. I have already asked you for forgiveness in the first post. Did I not?

I thought Gibbs response was spot on! The raging right-wing "reporter" nearly had a heart attack while he yelled on the floor of one of the sources of our current economic crisis... Coffee or tea, either way the man sounds like an egomaniac set on a waning opinion...

I agree, poetryman. It was a brilliant response to revengeful reporting. But then again, as you point out, he was not reporting anything. It appeared that he sought to advance a personal "professional" agenda amid a major national financial crisis on the floor of an institution that benefited from a bailout of hundreds of billions of dollars.

Boy this fellow Gibbs is a smoothie, in the best way. A comforting figure to see on TV - at a time when symbols and psychology count for a lot.

I agree, John. Isn't he great?! Disarming in a very warm southern way. He's quite comforting and refreshing indeed.
