Scott McClellan Revisited

Jake Tapper runs circles around Robert Gibbs almost every day. And sometimes he strikes comedy gold. Today he went after Gibbs’s assertion that the Republicans have no ideas.

TAPPER:  If the president incorporated some of — if the Democrats on Capitol Hill and the president incorporated some of the Republican ideas, Why would the president say the Republican Party is a party of no — no ideas?

Huh? That’s what passes for intellectual argument from the White House press briefing room these days. No wonder they decided to go after Rush Limbaugh.
