Here’s a fun nugget from the U.S. attorney documents (h/t reader B.M.):
It looks like Rich Lowry of National Review offered the White House his services in doing some positive P.R. on behalf of Rove protege Tim Griffin, who the administration had sought to muscle into the U.S. attorney job in Arkansas as a replacement for the fired Bud Cummins.
In a January 2007 email, White House political director Sara Taylor wrote:
Prior is going after Griffin. He’s made this his cause…. We need to find some folks to defend Tim and his credentials, not to mention our policy.
Your thoughts? Rich Lowry offered to help Tim
The best part? Taylor went on to ask: “Anyone better?”
Lowry didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about whether he felt dissed.
