My Evil Twin Did It!
That may be the hilarious defense of Claude Allen, Bush's chief domestic policy advisor accused of being, well, a serial thief. Best part of this story not likely to get enough ink? That the White House knew about at least one criminal charge and let him keep his job.

Once, just once, wouldn't it be nice if this White House actually owned up to a problem ahead of time and put a little priority on responsibility and accountability? Don't they know how much better this story would be for them if the first news was about how the White House had fired an advisor who was being charged with shoplifting? I suppose it *is* more entertaining that they wait until they have to scramble and dance around the embarrassing details...
