Great LTTE/ Seattle P-I on Cheney/Bush 9/11 appearance
This just cracked me up.

Is there a fear that they might give contradictory statements if questioned separately? Also, it appears there may be a lack of confidence in the administration with the president going it alone.

One should remember that Charlie McCarthy never appeared without Edgar Bergen.

I love it. There is also good coverage of Tom Ridge's "town hall" meeting in Seattle yesterday. He got lots of honest remarks from the audience, but the best he could do was respond that "If you had access to the information that' I've had, you would know that the (terrorist) threat (to cities like Seattle) is real." What a boob.
The hard copy of the newspaper sports a good-sized photo of the audience member who stood up and held a sign reading "HOMELAND SECURITY/U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act: CODE RED THREAT TO DEMOCRACY."

Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge found Seattleites in no mood yesterday to participate in his efforts to engage Americans in preparations for terrorist attacks.

At a town hall meeting billed as a forum for citizens to voice their concerns, Ridge was met with more questions about Bush administration policies that allegedly damage Americans' freedoms at home and their reputation abroad than about homeland security.

Ridge told the Seattle University audience of about 350 people that terrorists seeking targets likely will look to places such as Seattle -- a large city, with international ports near the Canadian border. And Ridge declared that "we will not give up any freedom" to secure the country from terrorists.

But that assertion was quickly challenged by a skeptical audience split between members of the public and such public servants involved in homeland security as high-ranking police, firefighters and public-health professionals.

Started my day right.

2. Ha! Someone mentioned Edgar Bergen. Look for the rethug
attack machine to smear his daughter, Candice, just to stir up some guilt by association for Rush!
