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

2.  Lame duck means no holding back.  Born again means no questions asked.

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?

    A day old Bag post of the President’s hand 4″ from a bikini-clad hottie and NO COMMENTS YET?? Is the internet broken?
    Seeing Bush in China on a sporting events vacation while Russia is bombing an ally, the campaign is in full swing, the wars rage on and the economy faulters.. what to say? I’m glad he’s out of the way. I’m sure the Republicans are, too!
    Did anyone catch Bush being interviewed by Brett Sowcroft last night? He was nearly reduced to being a poor sportscaster.
