Hee hee....

Are they selling popcorn? This is almost cheerin' me up.

At yesterday's White House briefing, ABC News's Jake Tapper asked whether Obama worried that the nearly $200,000 in back taxes and penalties owed between Geithner and Daschle will "undercut the president's cry for an era of responsibility."

"Both Secretary Geithner and Secretary-designate Daschle are the right people for very important jobs," press secretary Robert Gibbs replied.

"Is there an amount of money in unpaid back taxes for any nominee to the President's Cabinet that would be considered disqualifying?" needled Fox News's Major Garrett.

"I'm not going to get into hypotheticals," Gibbs answered.

UPDATE: It's been pointed out and duly that I didn't provide a link. I do that sometimes.
