JUST AN ORDINARY "OUTREACH EFFORT"....Jeez, speaking of the Armstrong Williams scandal, I was gobsmacked to read in the Washington Post today that outgoing Education Secretary Rod Paige, who was responsible for the deal with Williams, won't even admit he did anything wrong. Hell, Williams himself has apologized repeatedly, and even George Bush has pretended to be upset about it. Paige, though, says that secretly paying a journalist to plug the administration line on TV and in print is just a standard "outreach effort."

If this is SOP, then who else have they signed deals with?
