ALEX AT MARTINI REPUBLIC posts a jaw-dropping exchange between a reporter and Scott McClellan at the White House Press Briefing: The reporter asks if Pres. Bush opposes contraceptives; and Scott McClellan refuses to answer.

Q And my question is . . . . is the President also opposed to contraception, which stops this union and kills both sperm and egg?

MR. McCLELLAN: I think the President has made his views known on these issues, and his views known —

Q You know, but what I asked, is he opposed — he's not opposed to contraception, is he?

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, and you've made your views known, as well. The President —

Q No, no, but is he opposed to contraception, Scott? Could you just tell us yes or no?

MR. McCLELLAN: Les, I think that this question is —

Q Well, is he? Does he oppose contraception?

MR. McCLELLAN: Les, I think the President's views are very clear when it comes to building a culture of life —

Q If they were clear, I wouldn't have asked.

MR. McCLELLAN: — and if you want to ask those questions, that's fine. I'm just not going to dignify them with a response.
