Lanny Davis was on the Washington Journal last week, calling Lieberman’s critics "bigots" and "liars." He was introduced as "former White House Counsel," and according to Colin McEnroe, Davis is also an advisor to the Lieberman campaign. But maybe when he shows up to hurl merde on behalf of "Short Ride" Joe, he should be mentioning that he’s also on the White House payroll?
In June 2005, President Bush appointed Mr. Davis to serve on the five-member Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, created by the U.S. Congress as part of the 2005 Intelligence Reform Act.
Davis is listed in the "2006 White House Salary List" recently published by the National Journal. All we can say is if his Washington Journal appearance is any indication of the caliber of defenders Lieberman’s got going to bat for him, we wholeheartedly approve of the angry, desperate-sounding Davis.
