Let's Put Delay in Charge of the Money


US News & World Reports is reporting that Josh Bolten, incoming White House Chief of Staff, will be replaced with a "strong fiscal conservative."

"It would be a savvy move," said one official. Previous reports from the West Wing were that Bolten would pick an insider for the post, possibly Deputy OMB Director Joel Kaplan; Al Hubbard, director of the National Economic Council; or trade czar Rob Portman. But new indications are that Bolten might use the opening to send Congress a signal that he means business when he says the president wants to cut costs.

"This job gives him the ability to curry favor with Congress," said one insider. Sources said that he is considering former and current House members for the post. One associate even suggested that retiring Rep. Tom DeLay was being considered, though the most likely pick would be from a conservative budget association.
I've got an idea: Lets put a guy accused of money laundering in charge of the Office of Management and Budget. Doesn't that sound like something that could have no possible negative outcomes? I mean, really! Isn't that just the greatest idea ever? Maybe Ken Lay could take the job. Or Jeffrey Skilling!

Boy, I'm glad we have the responsible Party back at the reigns. Who knows what would have happened if we'd left the Democrats in office. Somebody might have gotten a blowjob!
