I just read the latest post from David Corn, in which he relates his experiences at the annual Radio & Television Correspondents Association dinner which took place last night. This event is most well-known of late for Bush's uproarious "where are the WMD's?" comedy routine from a couple of years ago.

Corn, who is clearly quite impressed by himself, related the killer "gotcha" questions about the lack of planning and foresight for the Iraq invastion that he contemplated asking Richard Perle and Donald Rumsfeld when he encountered them at the affair. Of course, he goes on to say that he, in the best "l'esprit d'escalier" display I've seen for a while, DIDN'T ASK THEM, clearly demonstrating that he has that same "go for the capillaries" instinct for reportage that he frequently castigates in others.

It seems that you can find a lot of shit in Corn.
