More on the outrageously staged dog-and-pony show from Crawford, Texas. Turns out that noble Max Cleland is a BUSH APPOINTEE on the board of the Export-Import Bank making a cool $136,000 a year to participate in a once a week meeting (probably by phone). As Rich Lowry of National Review points out, if Bush is such a dastardly dude why wouldn't Cleland resign from a political appointment he received FROM Bush? Or do his principles stop where the dollar signs begin?
I think we all know the answer to that question.
