Bush Thanks White House Press Corp for Never Doing Their Job Ever

Few things over the past eight years have been as broken and impotent as the White House Press Corp. That pack of groveling dogs wouldn't know the word adversarial if it shot them in the face. They, more than any other institution in this country--with the possible exception of the largely worthless Democratic congress--have abdicated their responsibility to watch over the government and report on its abuses of power.

Bush couldn't have been more thrilled with their collective performance, however, and so today he thanked them for being so spineless. The article states:

"Mostly, I’m interested in saying thank you for the job," Bush said.

Which can only be his way of saying, "if you guys did your job, I'd have been impeached by now. So...thanks."
