We Bet Paul Gigot Has a Man Crush Too

Posted By on Fri, Jan 5, 2007 at 11:26 AM

Congressman Jim Cooper appears twice today in The Wall Street Journal, which published his letter to the editor (suscription required) and noted that he'll be on FOX News' Journal Editorial Report this weekend (Saturday at 10 p.m. and repeating 5 a.m. Sunday). Journalism types heart Cooper for his intelligence and rational thinking. (In fact, City Paper editor Clint Brewer allowed on Steve Gill's show today that he has a "man crush" on Cooper—after Gill called this editor on a similar sentiment.) For those without subscriptions, here's the content of Cooper's letter:

I appreciate the bipartisan tone of President Bush's advice for Congress. In that same spirit of transparency and collegiality, I encourage him to be honest about the dismal federal budget deficit (particularly the accrual deficit numbers that his own Treasury Department issues), include a good-faith estimate of Iraq war costs in the annual budget, and open his famously secretive administration to meaningful oversight by Congress and the American people.

The 110th Congress can work with the president, and we will. On our end of Pennsylvania Avenue, we are making important changes that will make government function better. I hope that President Bush will as well.
