Luntz wants off White House mailing lists.

“I don’t want to be on your White House list anymore,” Republican political strategist Frank Luntz wrote to Bush White House official Scott Arogeti on Friday, after he had received a text copy of the president’s speech on fighting global terrorism to the Heritage Foundation. “This is my third attempt to get my name removed,” he said. Luntz was irritated that Bush’s speech opened with “a pathetic joke.” The Washington Times reports:

Mr. Luntz apparently thought Mr. Bush was a bit too jovial when he began his remarks: “Thanks for the kind introduction. I’m looking forward to working with you for the next 14 months — but you better put on your running shoes, because my spirits are high, my energy level is good and I’m sprinting to the finish line.”
