Look, I'm not sure exactly what kind of voice CNN tells their political reporters to use for articles that will run on the front page, but I'm going to guess that "funny" and "at the President's expense" are not traditionally part of the directive.
From the front page of CNN.com, right now:
"Key Republican joins Dems in opposing Bolton
This is probably not what President Bush had in mind when he stressed bipartisanship after the Democratic Party's midterm elections sweep."
Okay, okay, back to the celeb gossip asap, I promise, guys. Hang in there...
