"I wanted to slap him"

You may or may not have seen the interview that an Irish journalist did with President Bush two summers ago. It was wildly entertaining. She refused to acquiesce to the president's slippery, evasive answers, instead pushing him to answer. Bush was clearly agitated with her and the exchange really was rare and entertaining.

Last Sunday, the journalist, Carole Coleman, wrote a narrative about the interview. I highly recommend it. Said Coleman, "I wanted to slap him." I understand the sentiment, but generally, it's not a good idea to slap a president. Physically, that is. Her questions were punishing enough.
