Sit On It, GAO! The White House stood up for itself Tuesday, declaring that the GAO's assessment that the White House-produced PR clips may be illegal is hogwash.

It'll wind up in Congress, but already the outcry has been pretty big - you just don't use taxpayer money for this. Expect more blowback before the dust settles, and we couldn't be happier. There's so much innuendo and under the table dealing (check out Michael Shnayerson's article in Vanity Fair if you need more proof of sketchy PR dealings by the administration), but it's really comforting to see the White House blowing in the wind because of this.
