Real Questions; canned answers

The Cunning Realist notes that this is the first press conference in a while that didn't seem like a sham PR exercise.

Apparently, he used the word "kerfuffle." More details after I have a chance to do more than skim, but my first impression is that neither the friendly or unfriendly questions got answered directly: either he focused on one part of the issue, skipped to a related issue he wanted to talk about, or talked around it.

In other bizarre public appearance news, David Horowitz and Ward Churchill will debate, at least in the presidential sense: they will appear in the same place at the same time, with agendas and talking points in hand, and noise will be made. On the topic of the debate -- "Can Politics Be Taken Out Of The Classroom, and Should It Be?" -- odds are pretty good that I agree with Horowitz in principle and Churchill in practice, but don't tell either of them that.
