  1. The term for that in the Obama administration is “good girl!”
    More seriously, there’s a long tradition of putting government officials under oath, then pretending you’re asking a question when you’re giving a speech, then pretending you take the answer seriously when you know it’s just a spouting of the administration’s line. This runs through progressive and conservative administrations alike.
    It would be newsworthy if a member of Congress swore someone in, asked a straightforward question about a fact, and got a straightforward and truthful answer.

  2. Maybe she could be appointed as Ambassador to the UN, with her qualifications, she’d be a lock.
