Sloppy Seconds?

CBS News hits new low, digs...
CBS News finds own coffin, pounds in nail...

I'm not sure how else to report this...

A question posed to White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan at this morning’s “gaggle” by CBS White House correspondent John Roberts has attracted quite a bit of chatter on the Internet. Of course, the topic of the day is the Supreme Court nomination of Samuel Alito, and the question from Roberts, was, “Scott, you said that – or the President said, repeatedly, that Harriet Miers was the best person for the job. So does that mean Alito is sloppy seconds, or what?”


Of course, there is a simple explanation for this - from John Robert's apology:

The early morning White House gaggle is an informal, free-wheeling and often irreverent forum, which is not broadcast and generally not publicly available.

While he did apologize, it seems clear to me that if this hadn't gotten out it would have been just another day for the CBS News correspondent.
