The White House's Penchant For Self-Gratification Proposals

Evidently, Patrick Leahy isn't the only one that has had it suggested to him by someone in the Bush Administration to perform an anatomically impossible act.

From the Daily News, regarding the UAE-running-our-ports issue, we find this gem.

"This was a sound business decision," said a senior Republican operative
of the Dubai deal, "and an absolutely inept political decision. But this
is what happens when you've spent five and a half years telling your
Republican friends to go screw themselves."

Yes kids, Republicans and Democrats alike enjoy these undignified and sometimes confusing pieces of unsolicited advice from the White House.
