Well, talk about what has become a national news story, albeit comical, and get branded a "rabid partisan." I didn't even mention WHO was the lying politician in question until the comments section, yet I'm still no longer a must-read for some Cubs fans. Fine.
The story is, indeed, national now. Local 6 has more on the yawning kid. He's going to be on Letterman tonight. Letterman still claims that the White House (now I'll talk about who the subject is directly, okay?) did call CNN. I don't even know what to think anymore. My inclination is that some middle management in the West Wing saw this and got worried that a major donor might get pissed and called CNN. Then, some higher up caught on and said to the middle guys, "Stop micromanaging," and called CNN and tried to do a little bud nipping. Well, the cover-up is always worse than the crime.
Now that the story has gone national, and Letterman has had the kid front and center each of the last four nights, the White House is doing the right thing. The kids gets his 15 minutes on Dave's chair. With any luck, the cover-up part of this story will die over the weekend.
I just wanna know who the idiot is that thinks the President needs his image controlled so tightly. What are they worried about? They're running against a guy who looks like Frankenstein and talks like Joshua, the computer from War Games!
