CNN reports that FL Sen. Mel Martinez will replace Ken Mehlman as head of the RNC. This reminds me ofthis Bush/Martinez story…
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), at the White House this spring for a meeting with other senators to discuss immigration with President Bush, was surprised when Bush approached him as the meeting broke up and observed: “Senator Martinez, you’ve been very quiet.”
“That’s Martinez,” Menendez said, pointing to Mel Martinez — Florida’s junior senator and Bush’s former secretary of housing and urban development.
Bush turned bright red, we’re told. Seor Mayor?
The White House could not confirm the comment.
