What’s ‘It’ All About?



To every White House reporter:

The term “it” is not absolute. If you ask someone if they understand “it” or have “it,” have eaten “it,” slept with “it,” read “it,” decorated “it,” ignored “it,” had sex with “it,” jumped on “it” or twirled “it” over their head while whistling “it,” then you are responsible for defining “IT.”

He doesn’t get “it,” he doesn’t understand “it,” does he understand “it?” What if the people think you didn’t get “it?”

Every reporter in the room at the White House press conference after the election used the term “it.”

I think President Obama understands what I think “it” is, so to hell with what you think “it” is.

Every questioner at the press conference used the term “it.” What the hell do you mean by “it?” If “it” is advanced algebra, I don’t get understand “it.” If “it” is why anyone would vote for Michelle Bachmann, I really don’t understand “it.” If “it” is that I need health care or a job then I understand “it.”

You people are supposed to have our best interests in mind. Fire any reporter who can’t ask a simple question.

The President should have had a two word answer to every question, “Define IT.”

Obviously not one of you knows what you are talking about.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
