OK, I'm willing to assume that most reporters are intelligent, attentive, and conscientious people who do the very best job of which they're capable.
I just don't know how many of them were at Naples Pizza today.
By my rough count while watching the raw video footage of the talk, the Q&A, and the sidewalk questions, Ned was asked at least 14 times if he supported either an immediate pullout of Iraq or an absolute, unchangable July 1st, 2007 deadline, as Joe Lieberman interprets the Kerry-Feingold Amendment; which was voted upon and defeated months ago.
Ned patiently explained his position. Over and over.
I'm getting the impression that a reporter doesn't think a question is valid unless he or she is the one asking it.
I don't know if I'll ever get used to hanging out with these people.
So, after hearing the same question repeated ad nauseum, I was ready to clunk a few of the reporters heads together like The Three Stooges.
Sheesh. I was SO upset and frustrated at the redundant, insipid questions that I needed to calm myself with a tasty lunch at an Indian restaurant.
And Branford Boy was buying.
(OK, I wasn't that upset...I was just hungry; thanks Kelly!)
Anyway, here's the video. Enjoy.
(And somebody tell Mark Davis that I was just kidding)
