Dick Cheney Needs to Take David Gregory Hunting


I succumbed to the temptation. I promised myself I wouldn't make any Dick Cheney hunting jokes - primarily because they've all already have been made. I even went so far as to write an archaeology post to avoid the topic.

Oh well. Just count the title to this post as a fantasy of bodily harm inflicted on one of the White House press corps' biggest grandstanding poseur gasbags.

Yes, Gregory is a pompous windbag:

The most heated public moment occurred during McClellan's off-camera "gaggle" with White House reporters yesterday morning. It featured NBC's David Gregory, one of McClellan's most persistent inquisitors over the last year, who raised his voice while asking a question about the incident.

"Hold on," McClellan interrupted, pointing out that "the cameras aren't on right now. You can do this later."

"Don't accuse me of trying to pose to the cameras," Gregory replied. "Don't be a jerk to me personally when I'm asking you a serious question."

"You don't have to yell," McClellan said.

"I will yell," said Gregory, jabbing his finger in McClellan's direction. "If you want to use that podium to try to take shots at me personally, which I don't appreciate, then I will raise my voice, because that's wrong."

Get over yourself, David.
