She was the ONLY member of the White House Press Corpse (sic) to stand up to every president she sat before.  Obama sure didn't want her around.

She stood up to Bush and was nearly sacked but the outcry restored her. She stood up to Israel and...well, you can stand up against a mere president but you can't stand up against his actual controller. She's such a beautiful person. But this is not a sad development. As Ernest would say, referring to that wonderful commodity that good money can't buy (blow-back): "So who do I give the $100?".
