The White House: Where Bullshit is Job One

The New York Times reports that on September 28th, Grant M. Dixton, Associate Counsel to the President of the United States, sent a cease & desist letter to The Onion.

That's right, The Onion. Because The Onion used the Presidential Seal on its website. Without permission.

The Times notes that while Mr. Dixton was trying to shield us from confusing The Onion with The White House (one is run by smart people), he was also helping President Bush find a Supreme Court nominee. We all know how that turned out.

Clearly multitasking is not Mr. Dixton's thing.
