Surprise, surprise

Bush had nothing intelligent to say about the latest 'outbreak of violence' in the Middle East.

What? There's no one left in the White House capable of writing an intelligent-sounding 20-40 word response to a question they know Bush is going to get?

Interestingly, though, I really can't remember the last time I saw one of the MSM come right out and admit they're using canned material from the White House:

It's the label on the photo to the left: "In this handout photo provided by the White House shows President Bush as he called several world leaders concerning the situation in the Middle East from Air Force One en route to the G8 Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, Friday, July 14, 2006. (AP Photo/White House, Eric Draper,HO)"

They sure did work hard to get that Air Force One emblem showing in the photo, didn't they? Gosh, if you didn't look carefully, you might think he was in uniform or something.

After the White House got pasted for paying for coverage, and the whole thing about canned government releases came out, they have to be more open about it, or they'll get in trouble. Or something.
