Whoa, Helen!

Unless I misheard completely, legendary reporter/columnist Helen Thomas, at yesterday's White House press briefing, asked Press Secretary Robert Gibbs the following vintage Helen Thomas question:

Why does [President Obama] want to sent more troops to Afghanistan to kill people?
Even though change has come to America, I find it oddly comforting that Helen "My follow-up is, why does [President Bush] want to drop bombs on innocent Iraqis?" Thomas has stayed the same.
