Funny Conversation , Condolezza and G Bush

Me: Hey, did you get a chance to review that document I sent you yesterday.
Lawyer: I sent it to a couple of other people for some additional feedback. I’ll get it back to you shortly. Refresh my memory, what was this for again?
Me: It’s a post for the blog.
Lawyer: Oh, yeah. Right. I forgot about that. That’s a really stupid idea – that blog. People parse every word in legal filings that nobody ever reads and then we go say any damn thing on a blog. (Apparently he senses my shock at his comment) Sorry… I know the blog wasn’t your idea.
Me: Actually, it was.
Lawyer: Oh. Forget it. What do I care. I’m retiring anyway.
