During yesterday’s Whitehouse briefing, Tony Snow had the following exchange with CBS News’ Bill Plante. Take a gander at Bill Plante’s picture below and then tell me if this is the face of a man on the cutting edge of techno-terminology. Apparently, he is.
Plante: Are you going to say you’ve met those benchmarks? You’ve met almost none of them.
Snow: You’re going to find out exactly what people have said when the report becomes available — within the next week.
Plante: If it’s about the benchmarks that you’ve laid out, there are very few that have been met, or they have been met in the most vaporous way. We’ve seen progress in the alliance between most of the sheikhs opposed to Al Qaeda. Oh good.
Snow: Again I’m not going to rise to the bait —
Plante: It’s vaporware.
Snow: Vaporware? What is vaporware?
Plante: Vaporware is software that has been promised but hasn’t yet been delivered.
Snow: I see. I was afraid it had to do with bodily functions and —
Plante: Oh no.
Snow: I was a little worried about it.
