Becky, you will never believe this. So you know how yesterday Barack Obama and George Bush had like a private conversation at the White House? Well, less than a day later, one of Obama's friends totally blabbed about what Bush said to him — in confidence. So the New York Times told everybody that Bush wouldn't rescue the auto industry unless Obama and the Democratic Congress got behind his fair free-trade agreement with Colombia. What. Ever.

But Bush says he totally didn't say that! So of course this morning, Bush got all mad and had his friends call Matt Drudge and basically like threaten him, saying "Senator Obama would be wise to keep close counsel." Because like, duh, what happens between presidents stays between presidents. But Obama's friends say, hey, that's how you play the game — stop being such whiny bitches. "What we did was hardly hardball!" Oh yeah, did I add that nobody is willing to have their name attached to any of these stories because they're such gossips? Yeah, Gawker thinks it's totally Rahm Emanuel because he's like a hot bully with a Napolean complex, but if you ask me, the whole thing was masterminded by Obama himself, because hello nobody else was there to hear the conversation and nobody is going rogue on him already. Becky, are you listening? Stop messing with my shiny scrunchie!

Obama's already shaking things up more than we even expected, and liberal bloggers are already like, right on! Except he totes needs to be more careful, because if he keeps pulling this crap, the Bush team, which probably isn't that mad, they just want to send a warning, is totally going to get mad for real.

Anyway, oh my God, Becky, look at her butt. It is so big …
