Ribbing the Press Corps

Here is a transcript of an interchange between President Bush and the White House reporters at the Nothin' Fancy Cafe in Roswell, New Mexico. Appropriately, considering the location, it seems other-worldly. The "conversation" begins"

THE PRESIDENT: I need some ribs.
Q Mr. President, how are you?
THE PRESIDENT: I'm hungry and I'm going to order some ribs.
Q What would you like?
THE PRESIDENT: Whatever you think I'd like.

Read it all and decide for yourself what this says about the nature of the White House bear. (Thanks to sylloge for the tip.)
