BETTER DUCK AND COVER, PAUL....Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill isn't finished with his, um, unkind remarks about George Bush, remarks that we all get to hear and see tomorrow on 60 Minutes. But then there's this:

O'Neill, who was asked to resign because of his opposition to the tax cut, says he doesn't think his tell-all account in this book will be attacked by his former employers as sour grapes. "I will be really disappointed if [the White House] reacts that way," he tells Stahl. "I can't imagine that I am going to be attacked for telling the truth."

He's got to be kidding. After all this time is he really that clueless about the kind of people he's dealing with?

How did a naif like him get so rich, anyway?
