Letter to the editor: Obama administration wins Schultz Award

Friday, May 24, 2013 - 12:01 am

Never have so many been paid so much to know so little.

President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Press Secretary Jay Carney and now IRS Acting Commissioner Steven Miller have en masse been awarded the Sergeant Schultz (“I know nothing – nothing!”) Award, resplendent with the Will Rogers Cluster (“I only know what I read in the newspapers”).

And talk about lucky timing for President Obama’s re-election — between the truth about Benghazi and the stand-down order; the IRS’ snooping for years; and the AP phone records scandal — good thing none of this came out before the election.

President Obama sure is lucky; I wonder if he bought a Powerball ticket?
