Some free advice for Robert Gibbs*

My two cents on the Gibbs-Santelli spat over President Obama's housing plan: game, set, match Santelli.

I know Gibbs is new on the job as the President's Press Secretary, and I think he's been doing a pretty good job at it, but he should know better than to engage in a tit-for-tat with a prominent broadcast journalist.

What's the old adage:  don't pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel.  All he's done is further make Santelli a martyr celebrity, and in the process has gotten the White House off message

I'm sure Gibbs will learn from it.  And I'm sure Santelli will keep egging him on with his anti-handout stimulus diatribes.  It's entertaining, if nothing else, but ultimately unproductive for the White House. 

* Actually that wasn't free. I demand some bailout dough for this advice.

Gibbs sounded a little like Nancy Pelosi. Shrill and Scary
