Oh lord, is this gonna be the "That's not a hair-related question" of 2012?

Though, it's a pity Obama didn't think to use it in the Rose Garden the other day. It would have been THE perfect response

To be fair to Harper, he was asked a clown question.

Bryce Harper grew up in Las Vegas so it makes sense.

You had confidence in any of those parties to begin with?

FTFA: Moments earlier Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was asked about President Obama's new immigration policy announced last Friday.
McConnell refused to comment on the policy, deferring until the presumed Republican nominee, former Gov. Mitt Romney, made his opinion known first.
"I think we're going to wait and see what Gov. Romney has to say, and then our members are going to be discussing his views on this, and I think many of them will have similar views. Others may not," McConnell said.


Oh FFS, why can't reporters grow a spine? "Senator McConnell, the reason I'm not asking Mitt Romney is because he's not a member of the federal government. You sir, are, and as such you are expected to make known your position in matters of federal government policy. I ask again, what is your stance on this matter?"

It ain't hard.

That would be showing a liberal bias.

It's also a quick way to ensure that your news organization never gets any access to Mitch McConnell (and possibly several other prominent Republicans) again.

Thing is, if a news org took a stand and this did happen, it would only hurt the GOP in the long run...

"We've received reports that Sen McConnell has been violating protected tortoises, we've reached out to Sen McConnell's office and were told "no comment""

Reid's actually a bit of a badass, or at least he was at one point in time.

My favorite Harry Reid story (quoted from his Wikipedia page):

Reid served as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission from 1977 to 1981. When Jack Gordon, LaToya Jackson's future agent and husband, offered Reid a $12,000 bribe to approve new games for casinos, Reid brought in the FBI to tape Gordon's bribery attempt and arrest him. After FBI agents interrupted the transaction as prearranged, Reid lost his temper and began choking Gordon, saying "You son of a biatch, you tried to bribe me!" Gordon was convicted in 1979 and sentenced to six months in prison.[1] In 1981, Reid's wife found a bomb attached to the family station wagon; Reid suspected it was placed by Gordon.[1]

That's a clown question, Subby.

Beautiful. It's like the fifth Amendment: Just invoke it whenever you don't want to answer the question.

Which would be all the time.

Senator Harry Reid you say? He is one die-hard Pacman fanatic.
