The Screw Job

When trouble comes like a rainy day
I run to our secret hideaway and listen

You tell me what to do

I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20

So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

The Love Shack is a little old place

where we can get together

There's a small hotel

With a wishing well

I wish that we were there together

The Bush administration is seeking to sequester White House visitor logs for a decade, while two dozen news agencies have filed for their release under the Freedom of Information Act ("White House Challenges Release of Visitor logs.")

According to Seymour Hersh's book,
The Dark Side of Camelot, John F. Kennedy's Secret Service-abetted trysts with prostitutes were kept secret so as to prevent public scandal. After all, Catholics only screw to procreate, or so the Pope tells us.

45 Years later, White House denizens again want to keep hanky-panky out of the headlines. Except this time, it is the U.S. taxpayers who are getting the screw job.

"If released, the documents would show how often prominent religious conservatives visited the White House and Vice President Dick Cheney's residence. . ."

Today's prostitutes -- the "prominent religious conservatives" -- are every bit as practiced as Kennedy's Ms. Exner in separating a fool from his money. The problem is, this time it is our money.

We're getting taken for a ride, but it is not a pleasurable one.

Oh, man, if only the worst thing George Bush ever did in the White House was screw around with fast women, imagine how happy many of us would be.

If only.
