The Is he serious? Quote of the Day

From the article discussing President Bush’s threatened veto, explaining why he has kept his veto pen in its original packaging. (I guess it’s like collectible Star Wars figurines – worth more unopened.) Enjoy:

“By working closely with Congress — and by threatening vetoes when they were called for — discretionary spending has been kept in check and there hasn’t been a need to veto a spending bill,” said Scott Milburn, a spokesman for the Office of Management and Budget.

I understand that Mr. Milburn has to toe the line, but seriously, wouldn’t it be better to say “No comment” when the reporter calls seeking quotes for a story on the lack of presidential vetoes? Discretionary spending has been kept in check? Who’s his speech writer, Tom DeLay? At least I got a chuckle out of it.
