The White House press briefing is almost 15-20 minutes behind schedule... What's up? Is Jay Carney renegotiating his pay for having to do this stuff (without bursting into laughter?

Takes a bit of time to draft a Presidential resignation letter.

OK, I can dream, can’t I?

I'm surprised the WH would bother.
By Monday, the Benghazi story won't exist.

Or maybe Jay Carney resigned (I doubt - but can hope) and zero is having to get familiar with the lies he directed to be told today. It is hard to keep up with them.

The tail you see is illusional. It is stationary. The movement perceived is actually a dog.

It is the dog that is being wagged, poorly I might add.

At around 11:30am today, the 12:30 White House Daily Briefing was rescheduled to 1:45.

It is now 2:20 and still no sign of Jay Carney...

Watch this farce, whenever it begins, Here.

Ready here, with popcorn.

Security personel apprehended Mr. Carney who was heard shouting “i can’t do it anymore” as he was injected with what appeared to be thorzine. Mr. Carney is reportedly up and awake now, preparing for the rescheduled Presss Briefing.

It will be great if the first question asked is “Why did the white house feel the need to hold an off the record briefing to the “select” members of the press before telling the American People the truth?”

I think Carney had some kind of stroke, fell in the bathroom and got a concussion.

We will see him with thick black-rimmed glasses soon and somewhere in his long diatribe he will tell us "it doesn't really matter".

It does seem highly unusual, but I seem to recall this happening before, but in regards to active military actions or something reasonable people could see deserved secrecy. Not something like this cover-up on Benghazi though.
