Don't Make Me Say This Again
According to the Washington Post, Pres. Bush has ordered White House staff to attend a series of mandatory briefings that will "provide refresher lectures on general ethics rules, including the rules governing the protection of classified information." No word as yet on whether Pres. Bush will receive his own series of "refresher lectures" to reacquaint him with pledges he made during his campaign to be a "uniter not a divider", to avoid the use of our troops to engage in nation building, to ensure that the federal government complies with all environmental laws, to restore "confidence in government" by attacking pork-barrel spending, to restrict tax cuts to "the bottom end of the spectrum" and to pay the nation's debt down to a "historically low level."
