President Bush today convened a rare Sunday afternoon cabinet
meeting. Rumor had it the the meeting was to address declining
poll numbers as well as strategies for dealing with the
emerging 'Downing Street Memos', and the controversy over
closing the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Through a mix up in security
reporters and photographers were allowed a brief moment's
access as the meeting broke up. Cabinet members appeared
visibly stunned, but refused to answer questions.
White House spokesman Scott
McClellan later stated,"I've repeated the fact over and over
that this President simply does not respond to polls. This was
not a "Prayer Meeting", or a "Come to Jesus", in any way. It
was simply an informal get together, who among us doesn't
enjoy lounging around in a robe on their day off."
