White House Levity

From Thursday’s White House Press Briefing:

    MS. PERINO: Good afternoon — morning. Sorry I’m a little bit late, but I had the opportunity to go with the President to his meeting with the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative.

    (Cell phone rings.)

    Total cell phone violation by Jim Axelrod of CBS News. (Laughter.)

    Q No, Terry is not here, sorry. (Laughter.)

    Q Can we start over again?

    MS. PERINO: Terry’s ring is much more obnoxious. (Laughter.)
