A Robot Theater Presentation: Arguing With Lefties

Amusing, but depressingly accurate:

Hat tip: Babalu

Speaking of useful idiots.… A gaggle of lefty bloggers (proggers?) were invited to the White House for meeting with the Big Kahuna, today.

On Wednesday, the president conducted what appears to be the first ever in-person sit-down with political bloggers, hosting a group of five in the White House.

The invitees fall more under the rubric of ideological or issue-oriented activists as opposed to online reporters, though the names are familiar to most political junkies. An administration official confirmed that Joe Sudbay of AMERICABlog; Duncan Black (“Atrios”), who runs the site Eschaton; Barbara Morrill, who writes for the DailyKos; Jon Amato, who edits Crooks and Liars; and Oliver Willis, who runs an eponymous site, spoke with the president on Wednesday.

UPDATE!

Iowahawk has the exclusive transcript from the meeting: One Afternoon In the Office of the Powerful Man On Earth:

UNIDENTIFIED WHITE HOUSE AIDE
I would like to thank you all again for agreeing to meet with the President on such short notice. I know that all of you, like the President, have very busy schedules. In order that we keep the President on his, I would like to…. excuse me sir, what are you doing?

JOHN AMATO
Who, me?

AIDE
Yes.

JOHN AMATO
I’m just taking one of these souvenir pens.

AIDE
I’m sorry sir, that is the Abraham Lincoln fountain pen. The one used to sign the Emancipation Proclamation.

JOHN AMATO
So it stays here? On the desk?

AIDE
Yes.

JOHN AMATO
Hey man, my bad. I’ll put it right back in the holder thingy.

AIDE
As I was saying…

JOHN AMATO
How about this ashtray?

AIDE
No sir. We will distribute a few small personal gifts to you at the conclusion of the meeting. As I was saying, the President is on a tight schedule today, so in order to make yours a productive meeting it is important that we keep it brisk and to the point. First I’d like to give you some protocol.

BARBARA MORRILL
Is that anything like Darvocet? Because if it is I better have just a half-hit, I’m already on my third gin since lunch.

AIDE
No ma’am. Protocol is the formal etiquette we use here for meetings. Sir?

JOHN AMATO
Sorry, just checking out the desk drawers.
