In a clever (though arguably inappropriate) jab at former Gov. Sarah Palin, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs showed up to the daily press briefing with a grocery list written on his hand. The list included eggs, milk, and bread… And hope and change, just in case he forgot. (His words, not mine.)

Yes, it’s a media-hyped “scandal” that really shouldn’t be a big deal, but is becoming one. (And of course, by continuing to blog about it, I’m not helping.) Here’s a photo comparison, courtesy of Fox News:
I’m not going to get into whether it’s appropriate for a White House Press Secretary to publicly make a joke at a rival politician’s expense. I’m just going to have a quick chuckle and move on.
