the absurdists could not do better

Via Talking Points Memo, a transcript of a White House press conference. As a script, it is kind of lacking the absurdist oomph that The Bald Soparano has, but as a start, I’m sure it could make a scene to rival the best of the absurdist theater.

Admittedly, the press corps were being pretty ruthless, but the inability of our current administration to answer a simple question straight-on makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of forthrightness. How the president manages to make himself seem like a straight-talking man of the people while engaging in this ring-a-ring of roses boggles my mind.

    This was written in full sarcasm mode, I hope I projected.
