According to BuzzFlash, Ari Fleischer was
literally laughed out of the room greeted with derisive laughter by the normally docile White House press corps when he tried to assert that the US isn't buying other countries' support for its "coalition of the billing," and even links to a video of the event. Here's the official White House transcript:
MR. FLEISCHER: You're saying that the leaders of other nations are buyable. And that is not an acceptable proposition. (Laughter.)
Not acceptable? Washington is counting on it!
Update: I just watched the video, and while it's a scream, I'd disagree with the characterization that Fleischer was "laughed out of the room." His statement was greeted with derisive laughter that persisted after he left the room, and Felischer appeared to me to be surprised--if not dismayed--at the skepticism with which his, um, statement was met. I'm gonna watch this one again and again.
