Go watch it, then come back here for my commentary, featured below:
Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for that smarmy son of a bitch to get his comeuppance? But more importantly: do you know how long those journalists must have been waiting for a chance like this? They must have gotten so sick of hearing that assclown say, in his special condescending way, “I just don’t understand where you media types got the idea that I said blah blah blah…” Why else would they have those two quotes right there, waiting to trip him up? I like to think that, after Rumsfeld hemmed and hawed his way out of the room, those interviewers were giving each other high-fives in the post-interview locker room, congratulating each other on nailing that punk. These guys won’t pay for a meal for weeks, the journalistic community is going to be so happy with them. And so am I.
