White House staffers could probably use a laugh right now to distract them from all the serious talk of indictments and Harriet Miers. Maybe that’s why some of them are reading The Onion.
But this New York Times article makes me question White House spokesman Trent Duffy’s claim that the staffers “have a sense of humor, believe it or not.”
Apparently the White House took time to write a letter to The Onion, asking that it quit using the presidential seal with its parody of the president’s weekly radio address.
Scott Dikkers, editor in chief of the satirical paper, wrote in response, “I’m surprised the president deems it wise to spend taxpayer money for his lawyer to write letters to The Onion.”
