Modest pricing

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jul 10, 2003

Only a few hours passed between the announcement that Palestinian Prime Minister Abbas was threatening to quit and the announcement that the White House planned to send $20 million in aid to the Palestinian regime. You heard it here first.

A White House spokesman commented that, to be sure, "$20 million is not much money."

Well, wait a minute there, please. I recognize that $20 million is a drop in the bucket in comparison with what the US is sending to Israel. But "not much money?"

Tell you what, Mr. White House Spokesman. I have an old Nissan for sale; are you interested? How much do I want for it? Oh, "not much money."
