In fairness, the 2008 Easter Egg roll was dedicated to ocean conservation. Later in the day, he did manage pop over to the State Department. In fact, here's how the President spent the rest of the week.
So while the Commander in Chief was having a good day last week, here's how press secretary Dana Perino's day went:
I can't identify the male reporter asking questions, but the female voice is Helen Thomas. Never one to shy away from calling "bullshite", her questions and comments seem to make Perino more and more frustrated as the press conference drags on.

Thanks to TPM and C&L for the stories initially.
