Big Guy sat down with CBS's Bob Schieffer on Friday and taped his interview for today's edition of "Face the Nation." Big Guy did it in four takes. He's really getting this interview stuff down. Surprisingly, none in the media are complaining about Big Guy not doing any live TV interviews, where he could get hit with "gotcha" questions about the budget deficit, veteran health-care cutbacks, or how much Michelle spends on shoes.
Instead, all the whining is about CBS News, which has been gloating because they got the Big Boy exclusively twice in about six days for sit downs. You see, all the media wants their own taped interviews with Big Guy. NBC thought they were being clever by putting up a sign in the press room that read, "If it's Friday, it's CBS" in silent protest for being dissed again for a Friday taping.
But all these guys need to understand, we're going to have seven and a half years to make up for the slights of the first three months. And CBS did some really good work for us during the election, and now it's pay-back time. We're just tring to keep everyone - especially Katie Couric - happy. And if anyone understands that, it's NBC News, which coined the mantra: pay backs a bitch ... and so is, well, you get the idea.
