Quote of the day

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has a little fun with the Limbaugh-Steele fracas.

Published March 3, 2009 9:30PM (EST)

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is clearly enjoying the attention being devoted to the fight between Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele and radio host Rush Limbaugh. From his Tuesday briefing:

I was a little surprised at the speed in which Mr. Steele, the head of the RNC, apologized to the head of the Republican Party.

And with that, Gibbs ended the press conference. Not a bad idea -- it's hard to top that line.
