The fact that some people are using the term "Woodwardgate" may very well cause a tear in the ironic space-time continuum.

After Bob Woodward revealed that a White House official told him he would "regret" saying Barack Obama is negotiating the sequester in bad faith, the internet rage-o-sphere demanded to know the identity of this goon and the nature of his threat.
Now we know: the thug in question is Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling, and his vicious email to Woodward begins: "I apologize for raising my voice in our conversation today."
If that doesn't make your blood run cold, this will: "I know you may not believe this, but as a friend, I think you will regret staking out that claim." Ooooh. That sounds like… a warning that a journalist may be getting the story wrong, not a threat. Then again, this Gene Sperling is a very intimidating character:

* You know what the worst part of the GOP primaries is for the GOP? People are paying attention to the GOP.
* Bob Woodward says sitting next to Al Gore at dinner is "taxing" and "unpleasant," which rings false to me. It can't possibly be that positive an experience.
* Why bother trying to discover your own political beliefs through careful study and thoughtful introspection when you can just let your TiVo do the heavy lifting for you. Is there anything that machine doesn't know?
* Rick Santorum came this close to turning into the Hulk while discussing gay marriage with some kids. Instead, he just turned into his regular Giant Douche.
