Drive-by looting 

Great headline—"Bush Motorcade Passes War Protesters." Doesn't it always?

President Bush and his motorcade passed the growing camp of war protesters outside his ranch Friday without incident.

The motorcade didn't stop.

Cindy Sheehan, the California mother who started the vigil along the road leading to Bush's ranch, held a sign that read: "Why do you make time for donors and not for me?"

On Friday, Bush arrived before noon at a neighbor's ranch for a barbecue that was expected to raise at least $2 million for the
Republican National Committee.

About 230 people were attending the fundraiser at Stan and Kathy Hickey's Broken Spoke Ranch, a 478-acre spread next to Bush's ranch. All have contributed at least $25,000 to the RNC, and many are "rangers," an honorary campaign title bestowed on those who raised $200,000 or more for Bush, or "pioneers," those who have raised $100,000 or more.

Sheehan asks a good question, doesn't she: "Why do you make time for donors and not for me..."

And her question pretty much sums up Bush's Reign of Error, doesn't it?

NOTE Via Kos, here's a blog from one of the participants at Crawford, and from another participant. More from TruthOut. Farmer has links,art.

Here's hoping the Giant Puppet Loons stay away—I have the feeling the Right Wing Attack Machine is going to show itself for exactly what it is, on national television, for all to see. As the Clash would say, Give 'Em Enough Rope...
