I had a few thoughts about the partial transcript of the press briefing below:
One: You can’t really get it from the transcript, but David Gregory was almost constantly interrupting Scott McClellan.
Two: It seemed as though the only answer that would satisfy David Gregory would have been something like:
The Vice President didn’t follow protocol and call you or BlackBerry you immediately after the trigger was pulled. Therefore, the Vice President will have to spend some time in the “Vice Presidential Time Out Chair” in the corner of the Oval Office.
Three: I really think Scott McClellan issued a smackdown on David Gregory.
