Truth in Editorial Interjections

Yesterday Tim Goeglein, a [special assistant to President Bush] [wp] who has essentially functioned as a political operative keeping right-wing activists in touch with the president, was caught [plagiarizing columns for his home-town newspaper] [nn].

This embarrassed everybody, and it wasn’t long before the President [“accepted his resignation”][wh].

Not long before his exposure Goeglein contributed a piece to [the National Review Online’s tribute to William F. Buckley, Jr] [nro]. What’s great about this is the byline:

>— Tim Goeglein is deputy director of the White House office of public liaison. [This has been corrected since posting. —Ed.]

It sure has, National Review Online!
