Congressman Roscoe G. Bartlett of Maryland's Sixth Congressional District can take pride in at least one accomplishment during his first term: No White House official will ever again fly a government helicopter to play a round of golf. Thanks in part to the Western Maryland congressman's dedication to eradicating government waste, President Clinton last week summarily dismissed his long-time friend David Watkins from his position as White House director of administration.Mr. Watkins made the mistake of using the presidential helicopter to fly to Holly Hills Country Club near New Market.

WASHINGTON -- I have never been among those who demanded an official apology for the institution of slavery in these United States.I fear that such an apology would be only lip service and would enable millions of contemporary Americans to absolve themselves of any blame for the residuals of slavery that are still very much a part of American life.Yet, I have no quarrel with President Clinton over what he said about slavery or about U.S. neglect of Africa.In fact, I am incensed that some right-wing politicians and publications are pretending that Mr. Clinton committed heresy when he expressed his shame about slavery and U.S. inaction during times of genocide in Africa.

THE problem with President Clinton's economic plans is that they have no sex in them. It's impossible for you to follow the daily adventures of the deficit, the budget and growth of the economy without falling asleep.How can we make the economy more interesting? By treating it as a sex scandal.From the New York Post:WASHINGTON -- An anonymous source in the capital announced today that members of the Clinton administration abused the military budget to the tune of $100 billion. When senators told the administration personnel to stop making lewd remarks to the Stealth bomber proponents, the administration replied that they weren't abusing anybody, and the White House had the right to proposition the armed forces in any manner it saw fit.No charges have been brought against the Clinton people, but an ethics committee is conducting an investigation and will decide whether the $100 billion hug could be considered government or private business.

WHEN CHRISTOPHER Columbus first laid eyes on the island of Hispaniola (now Haiti and the Dominican Republic), he wrote in his ship's log that it was the most beautiful spot in God's creation.It has been downhill since. The original inhabitants of the island were wiped out, probably by the European diseases Columbus' sailors carried. (For the multiculturalists among my readership, it should also be added that the exchange of diseases went both ways. Venereal diseases native to the new world were probably carried back to Europe by Columbus' men -- where they wreaked havoc.

I'm not saying that Jean Marbella deliberately tried to mislead readers in her recent column ("In all these sex scandals, see a double standard," Nov. 18) in which she implied that Bill Clinton had been impeached because he had had a sexual affair with a female intern in The White House. Nor am I saying that she tried to excuse his outrageous behavior by asserting, "...there's no shame in being a stud. " Truth be told, however, President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives for committing perjury before a grand jury, and for obstructing justice.

WASHINGTON -- A controversial proposal to tighten White House security is making the Clinton administration feel more vulnerable politically.A draft of the soon-to-be-released security study calls for closing Pennsylvania Avenue to vehicles in front of the president's home, CNN reported yesterday. The idea sent President Clinton officials ducking for cover."I'd refer you over to the Treasury Department," said Michael McCurry, the White House press secretary. But Treasury officials had "no comment."

LONDON -- Even in the darkest hours of his administration, President Clinton seems to have some British friends left, although they may be a diminishing band.One day after Prime Minister Tony Blair backed Clinton in the Houses of Commons,the normally conservative Times of London newspaper scored a few blows yesterday against the president's congressional rivals.The Times labeled as 'highly irresponsible," the decision by Republican leaders to move ahead with impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives while the U.S.-British air campaign continued in Iraq."

THE COVER story that this was the work of one beaver working alone did not meet the eyeball test. So the government quickly retreated to the two-beaver hypothesis, then three. If you want to believe it. It was Japanese cherry trees that came down around the Tidal Basin, and we all know how jealous the Communist Chinese regime is of Japanese influence in Washington. Chinese intelligence payments to elect President Clinton are on record. So is the visit of Prime Minister Zhu Rongji.
