Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C.:
“I have said that the Beltway is a leaky garden hose and yesterday, a friend passed me a list of American and Canadian political figures that some evil person got from the Press and Information Office of the Israeli Embassy. According to the attached cover sheet, this list shows various people who have signed up as “dedicated supporters of the State of Israel” and who can be counted on for money and political support.

The rabid Likudists, calling themselves NeoCons, who did their best to push the U.S. into a war against Israel’s enemy Iran, have quickly and quietly faded into silence now that the Bush machine is gone but there are indeed others to watch with care. See if you know anyone on this list...”
