No! (gasp!) Chicanery and political skullduggery in the Vice President’s office! I’m shocked! Shocked! I have little doubt that swift justice will be meted out to the miscreants, who will make full confession and admit that the entire blame is thiers, it was all thier idea. Indeed, they went to great lengths to ensure that thier Boss knew nothing about it, as he would have been swift to put paid to such!
Indeed, they will fall upon their swords, and right crisply. But perhaps some compassion may be called for, some rueful understanding of thier patriotic enthusiasm. A few lectures from Chuck Colson, and a stern talking to. A firm reprimand placed in their Permanent Record, and banishment to the private sector, or perhaps some minor sinecure in some understanding and forgiving corporate office.
