Name Dropper and ignorant...

From todays Washington Times Inside Politics column:

Some of the most revealing moments of the daily White House press briefing are compliments of White House correspondents when posing their questions to presidential spokesman Scott McClellan.
Take this week's ear-opener:
Reporter: "My question is, is President Bush ready to replace Kofi Annan with my friend President Bill Clinton as the United Nations secretary general?"
"Your friend?" interjected a fellow reporter.


OK, not only is this unnamed reporter a name dropping leftie, he (or she) displays a shocking ignorance of the workings of the UN.
