I'm bummed I missed Bush's press conference earlier today, but they just showed a snippet of it where he flipped that old bat Helen Thomas the bird.

Well not literally (although that could have been pretty funny), but verbally. He had to tell her about five times to stop talking so he could answer her question: "Why did you really want war?" Dumbass.

Actually, she thinks because she's been part of the press corps since 300 BC she can get away with being as rude as she wants.
A friend of mine mentioned something about her at a press conference the other day, and I was shocked. I mean, I seriously thought the woman was dead! Or maybe was she going to retire or something? Old bat is right.

And, yeah, real reporters ask direct, tough questions, but there's no reason to be rude. At least, that's what I learned in journalism school. That was a while ago, though, so perhaps they've changed that.
