It’s been a rough few days for Jay Carney, what with all the bobbing and weaving he’s had to do to try and convince the White House press corps that his boss doesn’t know anything about anything. Like the Justice Department secretly obtaining AP reporters’ phone records, for instance. When asked about that at this afternoon’s press briefing, Carney couldn’t help but get all wee-wee’d up.
Poor guy … he’s under so much pressure. He could really use a friend right now. Thankfully, one of the three Hilary Rosens he knows personally is stepping up to the plate:
