1.  I can’t hit a golf ball (because we’re at war), but besides that…

3.  Bush playing for Nike?  Misty May stunt plus Kerry’s assets and double-swoosh.  Just do it!

4.  Ironic counterpoint to the Edwards interview with GDub’s hands (and the softball team’s, too) all over the place.

4.  And it was Laura off to the Forbidden City?
