Gibbs on Polanski: Beg pardon?

The teeth of justice are sharp!                (reuters)

From today's White House press briefing, just in case you were wondering:

 

Q: Will the president pardon Polanski? Will he, or not?

Robert Gibbs: I don't know of any pending pardon request, Lester.

Q: Does he believe pedophiles should not be prosecuted?

Robert Gibbs: The president believes pedophiles should be prosecuted, Lester.

Q: Thank you.

 

Who is this Lester, you ask? Mr. L. Kinsolving is a firebrand talk radio host and longtime fixture of the briefing room. Now you know.

Les is more.                        (WCP)
