“The president isn’t out doing town hall meetings just for his health.”

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs: “The president isn’t out doing town hall meetings just for his health.”

Really? Because I figure handling questions about “mean signs” from 11-year-olds can’t be that stressful.

(Yes, I know there’s some evidence that the 11-year-old is the daughter of an Obama donor, etc. I’m less bothered by that than wondering just what kind of question Obama thought he was going to get when he picked on the 11-year-old. “Mr. President, why do you keep saying that the status quo is untenable and that our health care system has to fundamentally change, but at the same time insisting that everyone who’s happy with their care will have nothing change?” )
