The other day a reporter came up to me and asked me about the investigation. He wanted to know why I had Sam Smith, the reporter, whapped! Â I have not had him whapped. I had nothing to do with it.Â Rather than issue a non committal no comment response, I took a page from Obama’s book.
“I think you ought to check your facts first,” I said.
He looked quite offended. I stared him down.Â Â I was thinking that if I was taken with whapping reporters, he ought to be careful.Â Â Therefore, either he was wrong or in danger. Â I think he eventually figured that out as well as he had no further questions.
Campaigning is hard.
