No Low to Which They Will Not Stoop...

If you can come up with a more nauseating combination of moral bankruptcy and sycophancy than this one, do let me know—the Bush administration admits (ooops) that they paid a black conservative commentator almost a quarter of a million dollars to tout No Child Left Behind to his African American viewers and other African Americans in the news media.

Uh, using taxpayer dollars to fund partisan propaganda…does that sound like a bad idea to anyone else up there? Remember the fabricated news segments the administration created and distributed? This is worse than shameless—it’s corrupt.

We should take some solace in the fact that this story was broken by a reporter who used a FOIA request. It rarely feels like the administration respects the public's right to information.
