Staying "on script" even when it's absurd

It's not a Eugene Ionesco play, it's a White House press briefing.

Raw Story correspondent Eric Brewer complained a few days ago that he was often left with his hand in the air at White House press briefings by Dana Perino. Yesterday she called on him, and I'm sure she's not thrilled that she did.

Brewer asked Perino a question she couldn't answer. And so, she didn't, instead accusing Brewer of taking one of Bush's statement's out of context. Of course, he hadn't misinterpreted Bush, he had simply pointed out that Bush's scare statement didn't make logical sense, in context or not.
