Sure, you could ask why the American public had to pay for leaders of the nonpartisan Office of National Drug Control Policy "to appear at about 20 political events
with vulnerable Republican members of Congress before the 2006 elections." You also could ask why they seemingly made far fewer appearances
alongside Democratic or independent congressmen in that time period.
But it'd be better just to be quiet and let the office's White House liaison speak on the matter
: "The director and the deputies deserve the most recognition because they actually had to give up time with their families for the god awful places we sent them."Swing
districts. Imagine the horror.
