Press Corps and Gibbs Plan “Beer Run”

Fox News’ Wendell Goler with other rowdy members of the press corps and White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had this priceless exchange in today’s otherwise quiet press briefing…

Q: Okay. And another subject, Officer Crowley is drinking Blue Moon, we hear Professor Gates is drinking Red Stripe or Becks — what’s the President drinking?

MR. GIBBS: The President had a Budweiser at the All-Star Game, so — why are you looking at me like that? That’s what he drank.

Q: We’re talking Blue Moon, Red Stripe, Becks –

MR. GIBBS: What’s wrong with Budweiser? Why do you hate Budweiser? (Laughter.)

Q: Well, he could get –

MR. GIBBS: Why do you hate Budweiser, Wendell? (Laughter.) Wendell, how about this — how about you and I, we’ll go pick out the beer, we’ll do the beer run. Uh-oh, hold, please. (Laughter.)

Q: I’m happy to do that.

MR. GIBBS: The mortgage services meeting is tomorrow. Apparently this has nothing to do — (laughter) — unclear whether beer will be served at that meeting and what it will be. (Laughter.) So we’ll go on the beer run together and pick it up in anticipation of the meeting.

Q: Pretzel or chips?

MR. GIBBS: Say again?

Q: Pretzel or chips?

MR. GIBBS: We’re just going to go straight beer. No sense in diluting it.
