We recommend Maureen Dowd’s neatly executed tribute to Vice, the Bullshitter-in-Chief’s pet moniker for the Leaker-in-Chief. She’s on the button again this morning, and she also gets away with an excellent headline, “Dick at the Heart of Darkness.”
If the double entendre isn’t clear enough, her column begins:
After W. was elected, he sometimes gave visitors a tour of the love alcove off the Oval Office where Bill trysted with Monica — the notorious spot where his predecessor had dishonored the White House.
Gets too cute:
At least it was only a little pantry — and a little panting.
But then shows she’s not just dicking around:
If W. wants to show people now where the White House has been dishonored in far more astounding and deadly ways, he’ll have to haul them around every nook and cranny of his vice president’s office, then go across the river for a walk of shame through the Rummy empire at the Pentagon.
