Dear White House Press Pool: Stop sucking

Dear White House reporters,

Stop sucking.

More specifically, do not ever let anyone say again that you “were besides [yourselves] with excitement, putting away the chicken parmigiana [you] were eating to talk to the president.”

It’s bad enough that we had to read about how “the White House is thin-skinned, controlling, eager to go over [your] heads and stingy with even basic information.” And that’s what you said after you let Robert Gibbs walk away from a meeting with the White House Correspondent’s Association saying, “We discussed and made progress on a number of issues important to both.” What does that even mean? And why are you allowing Robert Gibbs to feel good about anything? You harpies pounded Tony Snow while the man was dying of cancer, and yet you give a perfectly healthy Robert Gibbs a pass to make dumb jokes during briefings?

Muscle up, chuckleheads. Sure, people have stopped thinking of you as the 4th estate; and judging by the way things are going, Pres. Obama won’t need you to carry water for him much longer. (Except Richard Wolffe. Richard Wolffe will always have a job kissing someone’s ass.)

But in the meantime, why not make it count while you still have jobs?
