"I never truckled; I never took off the hat to Fashion and held it out for pennies. By God, I told them the truth. They liked it or they didn't like it. What had that to do with me? I told them the truth; I knew it for the truth then, and I know it for the truth now." Frank Norris.
As I've mentioned before, I like the McClatchy News Service. They've gotten all aspects of Iraq right more consistently than any other major U.S. news outlet, including the New York Times. Today (3/6/07) they looked at the impact of multiple scandals on the Bush administration:
"Bush administration loses some spin control in Washington", notes the headline on Ron Hutcheson's article on White House woes.
Ya think ? "If President Bush ever thought things couldn't get any worse, he might want to reconsider."
"After six years of setting the national agenda, with help from
a compliant Congress, Bush is losing control of events in Washington.
The new reality hit home Tuesday on multiple fronts."
