Wanker of the Day

Josh Bolten! From It Affects You:

Describing why costly items were left off the budget:

"The budget went to bed . . . before the president's proposals were announced."

Or sometimes:

"But, it wouldn't be responsible for us to take a guess at what those costs are."

In the same briefing, describing why proposals which add revenue or reduce costs were added to the budget (and the amounts guessed):

"Well, the budget is the right place to present the entirety of the president's policies, so all of his proposals are reflected in there."
