The catalyst for this blog was Robert Gibbs’ foray into the Twitterverse, offering up his Gibbsian absurdity for the world to see in 140 characters or
less. And so, it brings a great smile to my face that the guy who owes his career to being one heck of a Beltway Brown-Noser gives me the opportunity to cover his latest newsworthy moment.
Is it possible to lampoon a guy who uses the Sarah Palin scandal de rigueur to mask his woeful tenure as a Press Secretary? Is it possible to ridicule a guy who depends on the Gibbs Giggle Index to obfuscate Obama administration failures (When the truth is, they’re often laughing at him for the efforts)? The answer: Yes. And you can archive that, Gibber.
Ask yourself if you’ve ever gotten any worthwhile information from a Robert Gibbs Press Briefing? For the life of me I can’t think of any substantive information that has been given out at one these fiascos…for years. Am I wrong, or just jaded? It feels as though Gibbs looked at wonderful examples of past Press Secretaries and said, “Nope, I’ll model myself after that guy.
The next time Gibbs mentions Supreme Court cases the American people disagree with, I wonder if someone will ask him about Kelo vs. New London. Somehow I doubt anyone would ask Robert “Captain Stubing” Gibbs about a decision that completely undermines your private property rights because it’s kind of a bummer to think that one of the pillars of a free society was demolished right in front of our eyes and no one noticed. My own reaction, years later, is still something akin to Snake’s death. Or was it… Snaaake’s death?
Regardless, all you need to know about Robert Gibbs has already been said-by Jim Carrey.
