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,

The application deadline for the Summer 2008 White House Internship is February 26, 2008. If you know students and/or organizations that may be interested in this information please share this with them.

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

A White House Internship is an opportunity for current students and recent graduates to experience everyday life at the White House while working with high-level officials on a variety of tasks and projects.

Strong applicants should exhibit:

· Sound academic credentials

· A demonstrated interest in public service

· Solid written and verbal communication skills

· A history of community involvement

· Strong character and leadership skills

Beyond experiencing the day-to-day operations of the White House, interns participate in a speaker series, tours, community service projects, and various White House events.

For more information please visit our website at: www.whitehouse.gov/intern.

Applications should be submitted to intern_application@whitehouse.gov on or before February 26, 2008 for the Summer 2008 Internship.

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”.
