No…thank you!

Great post from Foreign Policy about the State Department Press Office:

…this short transcript just arrived in my email in box, under the grandiose headline “Remarks with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu Before Their Meeting”:

QUESTION: Madam Secretary, do you expect Turkey to finally agree on sanctions against Iran?

SECRETARY CLINTON: We are working every day and making progress.

QUESTION: Thank you.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you.

I’ve read that five times and it may be the funniest thing I read all day.  Could someone be trying to pad their press release numbers?  Was this a dare or part of a bet by State Dept. flunkies?  ‘Hey, who can put out the most content free press release?’
