THOSE WERE THE DAYS….From The Note today: “Dusty Foggo said through his lawyer yesterday that he did not have any improper relationship with Brent Wilkes, a defense contractor at the center of a congressional bribery scandal.”

Remember the days when “improper relationship” referred to a little hanky-panky with a White House intern? Sigh. Good times.
