I'll kiss Bush's butt for $240,000, too.

Armstrong Willians says he may return the money he got for shilling for George Bush's education laws.

Why? Because he says he didn't do it, and so he didn't earn the money.

Of course it appears he didn't consider "negotiating" until it was spelled out that the whole scheme was completely illegal.

I don't know why he's returning it, though. It might be illegal for the government to bribe broadcasters to talk up their laws, but I'm not so sure it's illegal to take the money. And since Williams' station made a point of detailing 168 different times he talked about the wonders of No Child Left Behind, it appears Williams deserves his cash.

I'm sure none of that came from any of my tax money anyway.
