Good morning Washington.
For those of you wondering why we’re not including the Politico, Roll Call and The Hill in our “Pictures of Morning Papers” feature — which we’d love to do — it’s because a.) Politico and Roll Call are usually a day behind in posting theres and b.) The Hill hasn’t put one up since Nov. 28.

WEST WING REPORTAGE
Good morning Washington.
MR. SAGAL: Alright, well. Dana, so — and we know that you, unlike Mr. Rove, are still employed at the White House — and we ask you this: Is Barney, in fact a lump?
MS. PERINO: I wouldn’t call him a lump. Of course, you’re right, Karl is on his way out the door. Look, Barney’s kind of standoffish, but heâ€™s got personality. He’s got a little bit of sass. You know, I don’t think — he doesn’t let people get too close to him.
MR. SAGAL: What does Barney think about Rove?
MS. PERINO: Well, I did see one thing last week when we were down in Texas. In fact it was actually more Ms. Beasley. They alternated from wanting to be petted by him to growling at him. So it was maybe a love/hate relationship.
KYRIE Oâ€™CONNOR: So Karl didn’t have to, like, carry the pooper-scooper or anything?
MS. PERINO: No, that job is reserved for other people. Like me.
MR. SAGAL: Really?
MS. PERINO: Well, I do deal with — I deal with the press a lot.
Touche Dana. Touche
More fallout from Salon’s FishbowlDC Hottest Media Types article
Conservatives continue to hammer away at TNR over the “Baghdad Diarist”
and a Supervising Senior Producer, Weekend All Things Considered.
Jeff Gannon tells FishbowlDC:
Dana Milbank had the Washington Post print something he knew wasn’t true and the newspaper refused to correct the record when it was shown to be false. The credibility of the Washington Post comes into question when it stands behind incomplete, inaccurate and malicious reporting.
Milbank’s opinion pieces masquerading as news stories is the reason he is no longer a White House correspondent. Milbank is a clown, as demonstrated in his many appearances on Keith Olbermann’s left-wing Bush hate-a-thon on MSNBC.
Gannon also steers us towards a press release put out by by
Pastor Michael Hall and the U. S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon.
Oh it’s on…
As a result, Gannon has promoted, via email, a release put out by the Christian Newswire, in which they say, “Had Milbank actually witnessed the late afternoon event, led by Dr. Corinthia Boone, an African-American woman with a vibrant ministry in Washington he would have seen every chair occupied with attendees united in praise, prayer and worship.”
Gannon tells FishbowlDC:
Dana Milbank dishonestly reported on the U. S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon. Despite being aware of information to the contrary, Milbank chose to mock the event and the participants as well as attack me personally. It is yet another instance of the Washington Post’s long history of hostility toward members of the Christian faith.
In 1993, the Washington Post ran a front page story that Christian conservatives were “largely poor, uneducated and easy to command.” It would appear that the Christians Milbank sought to offend are going to fight back. It’s about time.
Those planning on seeing Jeff Gannon at Nathan’s Q&A Cafe this Thursday will be able to see both Harlan Ullman (aka, “Mr. Shock and Awe” and someone that the D.C. Madam says was on her “list”…Ullman told CNN “The allegations do not dignify a response. I’m a private, not a public, citizen. Any further questions are referred to my attorneys.”) and Gannon in a double-header.
Harlan will begin at 12:30, followed by Gannon.
Nathans of Georgetown owner Carol Joynt will sit down and interview Jeff Gannon on April 19, as part of her “Q&A Cafe” lunch series at the restaurant.
