Things have been getting a bit testy of late between White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and the press corps he deals with.

That testiness reached the boiling point yesterday, when I asked Gibbs about the controversial recess appointment of Donald Berwick to head Medicare and Medicaid services and how this represented a difference from the Bush Administration practices that President Obama’s top spokesman frequently refers to.
