We know what you are. Now we're just discussing price.
In the first term he could just buy them off with pudding and a nickname:
President Bush played host to the White House press corps Thursday night for a private off-the-record dinner at his ranch.
The casual affair of fried catfish, potato salad, coleslaw, homemade cheese and chocolate-chip cookies followed a tradition in which Bush and his wife, Laura, have the press covering his annual August vacation out to the their ranch in central Texas as a sort of thank-you.
The event was not held last year because of the busy campaign season. The invitations to the reporters were issued on the condition that they not discuss conversations at the event.
Judy Miller is so gonna be pissed when she hears that the rest of the press has been doing her man while she's in lock-up...
