Know Any Promising Young Folks Who Wanna Run Into a Burning Building?


Funny how some things just make their own satiric gravy. From the White House listserv:

Dear Friends,

We are looking for a well-qualified, diverse group of applicants who would like to intern here for President Bush.

If you have any questions please contact White House Personnel at 202-456-5979.

Thank you!

Mr. Paris Dennard

The White House

I can think of a few questions prospective interns might like to ask, like what a Bush Tortur-ific, Never Ending War, White House means by “character” and “leadership”.
