I'm Telling Mom

White House press event, featuring David Gregory (NBC) and Press Secretary Tony Snow:

GREGORY: Actually, Tony, I don't think that's fair, if you look at the facts. If you look at the facts.
MR. SNOW: Well, I do, because -- no, because, for instance --
GREGORY: No, no, no. No, I don't think you should be able to just wipe that, kind of dismiss the question --
MR. SNOW: Well, let me --
GREGORY: It's not a Democratic argument, [Mr. Snow].
MR. SNOW: Let me answer the question, [Gregory].
GREGORY: But hold on, let's not let you get away with saying that's a Democratic argument.
MR. SNOW: Okay, let me -- let's not let you get away with being rude. Let me just answer the question, and you can come back at me.
GREGORY: Excuse me. Don't point your finger at me. I'm not being rude.

After this, things degenerated into a discussion over who was making Democratic arguments and who wasn't, and then Snow took Gregory's graham crackers.
