Press Pass

Dana Milbank got his fe-fe’s hurt because President Obama didn’t take him along to watch a middle school soccer game.

Over the weekend, Obama broke with years of protocol and slipped off to a soccer game without the “protective” pool that is always in the vicinity of the president in case the unthinkable occurs. Obama joked about it later to Pakistan’s prime minister, saying reporters “were very upset.”

This was part of a larger tantrum about how the press has been so badly mistreated by the Obama administration.

Note to the Washington Press corps and the Village people: It’s not about you.
