Everybody Into the Pool!

Wonkette says that the White House press pool reports would be hard to parody:

WH Pool Report: They're Actually Hard to Parody Edition:In this White House pool report, the pool sleeps late, Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Penn, wakes up early (if he slept at all) and WH press dude Scott McClellan is foiled. Highlights:

  • Specter says the president is "also doing well among steelworkers 'who have respect for him because he put the steel tariffs on.' Your pool reminded him that the president also took them off."
  • And the Specter hits keep coming: "'I don't think we could have stopped it. The terrorists were going to be somewhere. I'd rather they be in Falluja than in Philadelphia.' (This must be a new take on the WC Fields line about Philadelphia, but I don't remember Fields discussing Falluja.)
  • "Motorcade to Villanova was uneventful; the president headed into a home we could not see on the edge of a golf course; you pool ate at the adjoining country club where life seemed quite comfortable, and the President's base appeared to be golfing and swimming."

I wish I could say the line about Philly bouyed me out of this depressing piece. This line sums it up for me:
"...your poolers, in the best Sea Island tradition, was kept a half mile away, and pacified with fine food at the clubhouse of the golf course." Sanger clearly not quite pacified.
Describes the WH treatment of the press pretty accurately in my view. And why we need to get behind Tom Curley and AP's legal action against the Pentagon .
