White House spokesman Robert Gibbs hinted earlier today that President Obama might be getting a tad annoyed with all the lobbying going on over his impending Supreme Court pick. Hispanics want a Hispanic, gays want a gay, women want a woman, Eskimos want an Eskimo. He gets it. "This is a decision that he alone will make. I don't think that the lobbying of interest groups will help," Gibbs said at the daily press briefing before adding a more stern, futile warning. "I think in many ways the lobbying can and will be counterproductive." [Page/Time]
