Not Political Enough

There is a headline and story in my Washington Post this morning that says

Bush Aide Blocked Report: Global Health Draft in 2006 Rejected for Not Being Political

A surgeon general's report in 2006 that called on Americans to help tackle global health problems has been kept from the public by a Bush political appointee without any background or expertise in medicine or public health, chiefly because the report did not promote the administration's policy accomplishments, according to current and former public health officials.


I was going to say something snarky here about how Bush promised to change the culture of Washington, but that would probably just be redundant.
