If you can't beat 'em ...

This morning on Fox and Friends I was surprised to see a familiar face ... a face that I don't believe has been on Fox much if at all over the past several months during the White House's Anti-Fox News campaign ...

Robert Gibbs.

Gibbs appeared good natured, had well-worded, canned answers to the not incredibly light questions being asked of him ... almost as if he knew exactly what questions would be asked (this is probably fairly normal in the News Business these days especially for high-ranking White House officials from what I understand).   In other words, he did his job. 

I couldn't help but notice that at least twice he threw in very thinly veiled jabs at the Bush Administration.  But that is, sadly, what we've come to expect from this administration (you know, the one that's getting us away from the politics of the past).

Anyway, if you're going to try to control the message, which is your job as Press Secretary ... there's no better way than to go on yourself.
