    I can't get it either.

    I wanted to link a copy of the Onion's response to the Whitehouse.

    Here it is for now, with a roundabout link:

    "Dear Mr. Dixon,

    "I greatly appreciate your comments regarding my Weekly Radio Address parody. But I'm surprised the president deems it wise to spend taxpayer money for his lawyer to write letters to The Onion.

    "If you have a lot of extra money lying around that you don't know what to do with, here are some better ideas for spending it:

    "1. How about a tax break for satirists?

    "2. With indictments in 'Plamegate' forthcoming, perhaps a nice going-away present for Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Vice President Cheney, or whoever the president may be firing. I recommend a subscription to The Onion.

    "3. It has recently become obvious that there is need for some sort of federal organization to administer the management of emergencies - a hypothetical 'Federal Emergency Management Administration,' if you will. You could spend the money on that.

    "4. Harriet Miers could really use a scholarship to some kind of rudimentary judge school.

    "In the event there's any extra money left over after all these projects, then perhaps the president could justify paying lawyers to protect him from comedians."
