Bush's Presser

So the president held a press conference today and I missed it. Can't we have some more advanced notice that these will be held so that I actually know to tune in and watch?

Bush had an interesting response to a question on whether the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the aircraft carrier was premature, given the casualties since: "The 'Mission Accomplished' sign, of course, was put up by the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, saying that their mission was accomplished." This is an interesting new dodge that I don't think I've heard before. Given how obsessive we know this administration is about the image the president projects while speaking, the White House must have known the banner would be there and they certainly did nothing to have it removed.

UPDATE: I see Kos is all over this story.
