Oh, how we laughed, but then someone checked and spoiled the fun.

The popular quote:

“A moment I’ve been dreading. George brought his ne’re-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job.”

And this despite an intriguing listing:

Library Lady

Posted by Mr. President on August 15, 2007

clinton-blogs-for-hillary.jpgThe LA Times reports that many of those panting for Hillary Clinton documents from the Clinton Library will remain breathless for a considerable time.clinton-anti-1.gif

This is presented as something of a novelty. And the other girls make Hillary look bad:

“About 75,000 pages of Rosalynn Carter’s records are publicly available, including scheduling and social office files. Both the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush libraries also said that some records covering former first ladies Nancy Reagan and Barbara Bush were open”

The article does portray Library archivists working through the mountain of FOIA requests in the order received, with the aching slowness of the process attributed to staff shortages at the Clinton and all US President’s libraries.

Even sports bores rush to inform the world of her crimes. clinton-stop-hillary-pac.jpg

Dolls, Deals and Democracy

Posted by Mr. President on August 8, 2007

Who hems our pants?

bush-one-doll.jpgclinton-doll.jpgbush-doll.jpgThanks to the youngsters at postfoetry we learn that the Library of Congress is dumping it’s Presidential action figures, at half price!

Who wouldn’t want a doll which belts out such priceless pearls as “I believe again that the American people are capable of self control and of learning by their mistakes?”[Teddy Roosevelt of course!]

Nixon Dodges Another Bullet

Posted by Mr. President on August 2, 2007

Which one is not like the other ones? reagan-nixon-bush-ford.jpg

A Senate Committee has passed reporting requirements for Presidential Libraries, with living ex presidents caught up in the dragnet aimed at the Bush Library in waiting. The dead get a pass.

The House version does not go after the foundations of Libraries already part of the National Archives system.

Happy filing to the Clinton, Carter and Bush[1] entities!
