Your tax dollars at work: So, what is former Democrat Sen. Max Cleland's paying gig nowadays? He spent yesterday in a bit of political theater attempting to deliver a letter to President Bush at his Texas ranch. Cleland is one of Kerry's lead surrogates and spends much of his time criss-crossing the nation on Kerry's behalf.
So, one would guess Cleland's drawing a paycheck from the Kerry campaign.
Wrong. He's drawing a paycheck from you.
Cleland is currently serving as one of President Bush's appointees to the Export-Import Bank. A cushy political patronage job that pays $136,000 annually.
Wait until the New York Times gets ahold of this. It now appears that the entire Democratic Party is just a puppet of the Bush campaign.
