TIPS FROM THE POOL, INTO THE DEEP END

White House pool reporters are keen observers. They like to include descriptions of President Obama‘s clothing, whether or not he jogs up the stairs to Air Force One, signage and so forth.

“Air Force One is rolling for takeoff at SUX at 7:04 p.m. CT. 14-minute motorcade uneventful except for a lady showing the press van her middle finger from a gas station parking lot.”
