Overnight Open Thread. Still more Stimulus Package (genghis)

Not sure if anyone posted this earlier in the week, but NRO’s Media Blog covered this interview on Tuesday between PBS’ Chuckles Rose and ABC’s Jake Tapper. From NRO’s Tim Graham in the setup to his post:

”ABC White House reporter Jake Tapper described Obama’s first full day as president on the PBS talk show hosted by Charlie Rose on the evening of January 21. The real eyebrow-raising passage came when Rose asked Tapper about the relationship between Team Obama and the press, and Tapper described many of his press colleagues on their knees":

Followed by an excerpt from the interview (quoting Tapper):
”I would say for a lot of my colleagues, it's perhaps an unrequited love between them and the president. He’s — you know, he’s a cool customer. You know, I think that there are some of us that, you know, maybe try to report on our feet a little bit more than on our knees and he doesn`t necessarily know what to make of us all the time. You know, he eyes us warily.”

I’ll bet. I know some guys down in Orange County, CA who could probably work this story up into some sort of video. Sure, they’re not major film producers, and they work out of warehouses and rental storage spaces, but they’ve done some truly magnificent work in the past. Who cares if they have no Oscars festooning their garage-like spaces…they do this for the love of the craft, you see.

(hat tip to “Jubal Anderson Early,” who singlehandedly drove back the Spartan hordes at the Battle of Waterloo in 1066 A.D.)

Now that you’ve finished off your broccoli, I think you deserve a little dessert. Make sure you brush your teeth before heading off to your bunk. (Probably not quite safe for work, but anyone who objects is someone you really don’t want to work for/with anyway)
