Hey, kids, let's put on a show! 

After what we know, from campaign 2004 and the Social Security bamboozlepalooza, about how the White House works, can anyone seriously believe that Bush's "private meeting" with parents of the war dead wasn't (a) tickets only and (b) 100% scripted?

Didn't think so.

Damn, those White House script writers are good, though. And our oh-so-skeptical press laps it right up:

After his speech, Bush met for three hours with 68 members of 19 families who have lost loved ones in Iraq or Afghanistan.

" 'The president made me feel like he cares,' Ann Thurber said. 'My son wasn't just lost in the numbers for him. He felt our grief the way we do.'

" 'I think he feels it every time a soldier dies,' her husband added. 'A little of him dies with them. It's like they're his kids, too.' "
(Idaho Statesman via The Amazin' Froomkin)

"It's like they're his kids"...

Well, it isn't very much "like" that, because Babs and Jenna aren't serving, are they?

That Kool-Aid sure is powerful stuff....
