"Mike" Hears Everything

It seems some folks in the media are making hay about something that the President said while his microphone, unbeknownst to him was still on:

After six minutes of public remarks by the president, reporters were ushered out. "I support the free press; let's just get them out of the room," Bush said, intending to speak behind closed doors with fellow Republicans and take lawmakers' questions.
This was actually kind of cool. I must say, though, that I'm a little disappointed that he didn't hearken back to his famous remark from the 2000 campaign and say something like "Let's get the Major League Asshole All-Star Team the hell out of the room". His approval rating might have gone up ten points. Cussing works, you know; at least two people I worked with six years ago told me that they decided to vote for Bush because he called Adam Clymer a MLA.

And even if you don't like it when someone like the President cusses, it's not as if he shot somebody. Oops.
