HELP WANTED: Republican Decorator

Apolitical as this site usually is, it is impossible to ignore the generally good news from yesterday’s election. And, as if Bush could not make a more inept stab at humor, this excerpt from the International Herald Tribune is up there with “You won’t have Nixon to kick around anymore”:

  • The president joked that he had given House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, in line to become the first female speaker of the House, the name of a Republican interior decorator to help her pick out drapes for her new office. The comment was poke at the California Democrat's pre-election remark about having her pick of Capitol building suites.
If Nancy runs short of names, I’m sure she could always call Mark Foley or Ted Haggard. It's likely that they have a few names in their secret rolodexes. Or, Bush, for that matter, could check in with some of his fellow college cheerleaders.
