The venerable Helen Thomas gives Ari Fleischer what for, including:

MR. FLEISCHER: Helen, if you think that the people of Iraq are in a position to dictate who their dictator is, I don't think that has been what history has shown.

Q I think many countries don't have -- people don't have the decision -- including us.

There's also this great exchange, where Ari refuses to mention how many convicted criminals are on the White House staff. Because we know of at least one: Elliott Abrams.

Is there some sort of pre-briefing reporter happy hour? Does Helen Thomas ask these things holding a Bloody Mary?

No, she apparently just has the balls the rest of the press corps lacks.

The Democratic party also lacks these balls. What we have here is a Ball Gap!
