Off the bus, Bumiller!

How to fumble a "gotcha" question:

(Hat tip: Hot Air) What Elizabeth Bumiller of the New York Times was trying to do was to point out that, in May 2004, McCain had denied meeting with John Kerry to discuss the VP slot -- something that McCain has since admitted. That initial denial is the kind of inside-baseball thing that no one outside the press corps really cares about, and McCain -- who knows the cameras are rolling -- refuses to play along.

Good for him. And bad for Bumiller, who clearly becomes flustered and can't seem to remember the point of her question.
