    Someone should have asked when Snow would be able to answer questions so they wouldn’t have to waste their time going to his press briefings until he’s ready to actually give one. E-mailed press releases would serve the purpose, increase WH security and save gasoline in the meantime.

    Right. Because White House press corps members never go to the White House unless the press secretary is holding a gaggle. It’s not like being there is their job or anything.
