Wonkette takes a shot at Extreme Mortman’s old stomping and happy hour grounds, the glorious American institution known as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Arts and Sciences.
Wonkette’s tale is funny, but funnier still is this greatest HUD anecdote ever.
From the June 19, 1981 New York Times:
President Reagan was making his way down a line of mayors visiting the White House, shaking hands, when he came to Samuel R. Pierce Jr., his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
“Hello, Mr. Mayor,” Mr. Reagan said to Mr. Pierce.
