As Dennis reported earlier, yesterday afternoon president-elect Barack Obama paid a visit to the White House and met with ex-president-to-be George W. Bush.
Hours later a tantalizing leak emerged from the meeting: According to some loose-lipped sources, Obama nobly urged Bush to help the U.S. auto industry, and Bush was all, "Maaaaybe, if you stop gettin' in the way of my Colombia Free Trade Agreement, heh heh heh."
For today's indignant denials, let's turn to White House press secretary Dana Perino…
"They did speak about a range of issues, both domestic and international, and they did spend some time talking about the economy." she said. "But in no way did President Bush suggest that there was a quid pro quo when it came to Colombia free trade agreement or the other free trade agreements."
Mrs. Perino also played down rumors that Mr. Bush was angry over the leaks coming from the Obama transition team.
"I've also gotten several requests wanting to know if there is irritation at the White House towards the Obama team, and you're not going to hear that from me," Mrs. Perino said.
Of course not.
The White House already leaked it to Matt Drudge.

During this election, no one has had their finger on the pulse more than Matt Drudge. Just now he let us know about Obama's upcoming disgusting game of basketball.
According to the article, Obama would rather play basketball rather than watching election coverage of himself playing basketball like the rest of America. Does he think he's better than us?
Thousands of supporters were lining up outside the entrance to the event several hours before the gates open at 8:30.
Meantime, Obama returned from a rally in Indiana to play a pickup game of basketball at a Attack Athletics, a West Side gym. As is is custom before a big election, Obama likes to play ball with Illinois Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias and Chicago schools chief Arne Duncan.
Listen, Obama, I know you read this blog, and I'm just telling you, quit it with the basketball. It's just plain insulting that you have traditions and that you like doing things with people you admire and call friends.
Why aren't you campaigning like McCain? I bet he's going to keep campaigning until the last result comes in proving that the Mac is indeed back. And look at Sarah Palin! She's already started campaigning for 2012!
Does Obama love basketball more than he loves desperately campaigning at the last minute? Ugh! Un-American!
Thanks to www.drudgereport.com for providing us with the news.
Actually, I can't even say that sarcastically. No thanks, Matt Drudge, because you suck.
I realize everyone's harping on Matt Drudge sucking, but you know what? Every time he does anything, an angel loses his wings crash lands on a basket of puppies. So, I'm just trying to save puppies, okay?

So, Matt Drudge was all over that bogus Ashley Todd story last night, with the red headline and the flashing siren.
I don't know if it's because he actually believed it or if he's just that desperate for any "good" news for McCain.
Whatever the case, he at least re-pulled out the bold, red font for the headline "SHE MADE IT UP!" He deserves props for that.
However, I still think I prefer this one, provided by Digg commenter stagmire…
