The White House press corps are a bunch of juvenile, ineducable little snots, which is why Press Secretary Robert Gibbs literally had to confiscate a cell phone today during today's press briefing.

When the first cell phone rang, during a discussion about photos of U.S. servicemembers abusing Iraqi detainees, Gibbs mildly admonished the class to "just put it on vibrate, man." After the second interruption, he demanded that the offender hand over the phone, which Gibbs then casually tossed to someone offstage. When CBS News' Bill Plante's phone rang, Gibbs just cold kicked him out of class. You know what they say about teachers: Their reward is in heaven.
