"The stars were aligned. It was a coincidence." -- White House spokeswoman Dana Perino, explaining how it came to pass that NRCC chairman and New York Rep. Tom Reynolds could announce that millions of dollars in federal storm relief was headed to his district right after he testified in the House Ethics Committee's Mark Foley probe and not long after Karl Rove held a closed-door meeting with a federal disaster relief official in New York.
Quote of the Day
A Rove meeting, a need for good news, federal aid in a Republican's district? It's all a coincidence.
