Anyway, doesn't this strike you as similar? Keeping Sarah Palin sequestered from the press (it's sexist to ask a lady questions!) was apparently not enough.
And, in a related note, watch this horrifying clip from The Daily Show. (The particularly horrifying part is of our President.) If only Bush had read Earth Goat and followed my edict to watch the recent Fresh Air with Michael Greenberger explaining the financial crisis. I mean, seriously -- why is he even trying to discuss the markets? It is so embarrassing!
Due to my embarrassed condition, professor, I will have to miss class.
