Well, well. Whaddya know. Looks like the Bush Administration paid more than just Armstrong Williams, huh? First they said the White House had nothing to do with it – it was the Department of Education’s decision to give Williams the $240,000. But now it looks like the Department of Health and Human Services paid someone $21,000 to push another Bush policy. Oh, and a columnist who advised the president on the Inaugration Speech praised the speech on Fox News, failing to mention he had a role in writing it. So, of course, the president said he doesn’t want his administration hiring columnists, saying his policies should be able to “stand on their own.” Thank God we’ve got morals back in the White House. I believe we may talk about this tomorrow.
