There's a Robot Loose in the White House

This robot is affectionately referred to as 'Gibbsy' but unlike Johnny Five his intelligence level is limited to what's programmed into his response circuit..

Oh wait, sorry, wrong robot, here he is..

And here he is again..

Seriously, this kind of stonewalling should really be appalling. After all, the same robot recently proudly proclaimed his administration as the most transparent in history. Are they transparent enough to use the Memorial Day weekend as a cover for scandals, too? Nobody seemed appalled by that, either. And it must have worked--only a few minor reporters were in action Tuesday (instead of the Tappers, Garretts and Reids)--too many new stories to report on, besides, Holder has much bigger fish to fry along the gulf coast. There are Halliburton oil villains out there to capture!

Anyway, here's a pertinent part of Tuesday briefing:
Q Thanks, Robert. Just a couple of quick things on the Sestak thing again. The counsel’s memo on Friday said that efforts were made in June and July of 2009. Were there multiple efforts and were all those made by President Clinton?

MR. GIBBS: Whatever is in the memo is accurate.

Q Okay, but, I mean, with regards to June and July, I mean, were all those President Clinton or --

MR. GIBBS: I think the relationship on how that happened, yes, is explained in the memo.

Q Joe Sestak said he had one conversation with President Clinton.

MR. GIBBS: Let me check.
Elementary. The memo indicates multiples contacts; Sestak said he had one with Clinton, so what about the others? We know the robot won't check. Will anyone follow up? Will anyone question Bill Clinton? Anyone? Hello.. echo..
